India: 'Restraint' Might Not Endure in Pakistan Border Violence

India is losing its will to tolerate Pakistani army aggression in the disputed Kashmir border region, Indian Defense Minister A.K. Antony said on Monday, as small-arms fire between the countries reached its northernmost point in the history of a decade-old truce between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, Reuters reported.

Antony reasserted New Delhi's contention that Pakistani soldiers had killed five Indian military personnel on Aug. 5 in an unprovoked attack near the Line of Control dividing the region.

 

The Aug. 5 incident "will have consequences on our behavior on the Line of Control and for our relations with Pakistan," Antony said. "Our restraint should not be taken for granted."

The sides so far have refrained from employing artillery, as they had prior to the November 2003 truce.
