India and Pakistan have escalated violence on their border.
Xinhua News reports that, "Following renewed cross-border skirmishes between Pakistani and Indian forces, senior Pakistani military and political leaders have underscored the need for an immediate de-escalation."
22 people have been killed in border skirmishes in the past week alone.
According to Xinhua, "Pakistan says Indian troops are shelling areas across the Line of Control in the disputed Kashmir region and a nearly 200- kilometer border called the "Working Boundary" that separates Pakistan's eastern Punjab province from the Indian-administered part of Kashmir."
Border battles could erupt into a full-scale war between the two rival countries.
