Hundreds of residents have fled their homes along the border following an escalation of cross-border attacks between India and Pakistan.
 
Ceasefire violations have intensified in Uri sector first time in 15 years, as the area has been largely peaceful since the 2003 truce signed by the nuclear-armed South Asian rivals.
 
Residents said Churunda, Silikot, and Tilawari villages along the border have been most affected by the latest violence.
 
Tensions between India and Pakistan intensified after an attack on an army base in Sunjuwan area in Jammu city.
 
In the attack, that took place earlier this month, seven soldiers were killed as India blamed Pakistan for the assault.
