Pakistani officials evacuated more than 50 Chinese nationals working on a dam along the confluence of the Neelam and Jhelum rivers in the Kashmir region, on Tuesday, July 30. The move follows renewed fire with India across the Line of Control (LoC) which has left three people killed in the past few days.
Similar clashes are possible across the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir over the coming days and weeks.
India and Pakistan both claim sovereignty over Kashmir, which has been the focus of periodic violent conflict since 1947.
Individuals in Kashmir are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid the affected area, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
Some Western governments advise their citizens against travel to parts of Kashmir, notably including areas along the Line of Control (LoC), due to the significant risk of violence.
