 The Kargil War:

India vs. Pakistan

 In 1999, long-simmering tensions between India and Pakistan erupted in a war over the Line of Control in the disputed region of Jammu and Kashmir. This conflict became known as the Kargil War. Both India and Pakistan possess nuclear weapons, making any such conflict a very dangerous event.
