India-Pakistan: July 16, 2002



  The Hindu Times reported on 16 July that high-ranking army and government officials claimed the Indian army had withdrawn three strike divisions from the Pakistan frontier, thereby reducing its border war readiness as militant infiltrations declined. The Army supposedly withdrew the strike division (each of which contains about 6,000 soldiers) a week prior. The Army quickly asserted there was no change in deployment of Indian troops' positioning along the Indo-Pak border. - Adam Geibel

In Kashmir, rebel action left one policeman, two civilians and five rebels dead.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
