Ramadan Death Count: India: 23/05/18

(Kashmir) Five civilians were killed and nine others injured as Pakistani troops rained mortars and opened heavy fire on Indian villages and army border posts along the International Border between India and Pakistan for the sixth day running. Its appears that for Pakistanis Ramadan isn't a time for peace, and good thoughts.

Which kind of explains why since last Friday nearly 40,000 residents have fled the 200 kilometre-long (125 mile) conflict zone, between the Jammu region in India-administered Kashmir and Pakistan's Punjab province. Indian authorities have closed all schools within five kilometres (three miles) of the border and have lodged panicked residents in camps away from the guns.

Ramadan death toll stands at 149.
