India: Pakistan starts shooting war with India

(Kashmir)  As of this evening Pakistan has started shelling India in which to try and regain some sort of honour over how India struck a terrorist camp earlier this morning. This was reported by the Indian army spokeman as:

From 6:30 pm onwards, the Pakistani army initiated unprovoked ceasefire violation by shelling with heavy calibre weaponry along the LoC out of frustration.

What makes this worrying is that usually India usually turns a blind eye to Pakistani shelling, but today they have hit back twice as hard. resulting in this media statement from the Indian army:
"The Indian Army retaliated for effect and our focused fire resulted in severe destruction to five posts and number of casualties to Pak army (along LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts)"

Hopefully sounds minds will prevail, but from watching India news coverage, it appears that patriotic fever is the colour of the day and these are two countries which are both nuclear armed.
