"in 2018, it became the bloodiest year in a decade in indian Kashmir. According to the human rights organisation JKCCS killed 586 people in the area last year. Almost half were warring separatists but also the 160 civilians, including 31 children, were killed."
"Politicians and experts believe that the more than 500 000 soldiers, which India has in the area means that it does not look to be a more peaceful year 2019."
Kashmir has been divided between India and Pakistan since the countries became independent in 1947. Both India and Pakistan claim the entire territory. Since 1989, a number of separatistgrupper fought against the indian soldiers in the region. Many of them want to see a united Kashmir under pakistani rule or as an independent country."
