Pakistan Elections: Guns Fall Silent Along International Border

The guns are relatively silent lately along the International Border (IB) since June in Jammu and Kashmir, with not even a single ceasefire violation this month so far. Security experts and observers say the Pakistan general election, scheduled on July 25, is a big factor for this peace as the polling exercise requires political as well as military energy redirected internally.

The current scenario is in contrast with the first five months this year. Consider this: The Border Security Force (BSF) lost 11 men to cross-firing incidents – the highest in the last five years.
