The Indian army destroyed at least four Pakistan's border posts killing up to 20 soldiers, local NDTV TV-channel reported on Sunday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The incident occurred on Saturday in the Keran sector along the Line of Control, the NDTV TV-channel reported citing the Indian army.

The Indian army said that it responded to the ceasefire violations committed by the Pakistan's army in Kathua and RS Pura sectors.

Kashmir has been disputed between India and Pakistan since the partition of India in 1947. The two countries have gone through three wars over the region, but the conflict has not been resolved.

The recent escalation of violence across the India-Pakistan border came after 19 Indian soldiers died as a result of the September 18 attack by armed militants on a base outside of Srinagar, the capital of India-administered Kashmir.
