The cross border war between India and Pakistan has started once again , i.e. over the border after India initiated the fire at the shared border.
Both countries are blaming each other for the uninvited attack. While the fact remains, that the victim of this head to head retaliation between both these nuclear powered neighbors are the innocent civilians.
The death toll of Pakistani civilians has risen to 12 with a couple being killed in Sialkot by Indian Gun Fire this Thursday. While the number of injured civilians during the cross border attack is now 43.
