  • Causes Of The Second Kashmir War

    The Second Kashmir War broke out in April of 1965 and lasted until September of that year. Ironically, the root of the conflict was not in Kashmir, it was farther south in the modern Indian state of Gujrat. After the First Kashmir War, the UN created a ceasefire line which was religiously observed by both nations in Kashmir, but in many other areas of the border, it was vague.

The fighting was inconclusive for both sides as little territorial changes were made. Each nation lost around 3,000 men; a ceasefire was arranged by the UN Security Council once again on September 23, 1965, and the war was ended by the Tashkent Declaration in January of 1966. Peace in the region was kept until the Third…
