Kargil Conflict 1999

Unfortunately, in May 1999 India launched air strike against Pakistani-backed forces that had infiltrated into the mountains in Indian-administered Kashmir, north of Kargil. Pakistan responded by occupying positions on the Indian side of the Line of Control in the remote, mountains area of Kashmir near Kargil, threatening the ability of India to supply its forces on Siachen Glacier. By early summer, serious fighting glared in the Kargil sector. The infiltrators withdrew following a meeting between Prime Minister Sharif.
