In the video, a local Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist standing with an AK-47 assault rifle can be seen addressing people
Kashmir: A day after the Indian Army killed nine terrorists in separate encounters, terrorists have now started threatening people that they should not tip off the security forces about their presence in localities, which leads to their deaths at the hands of the troops.
A video in this regard has surfaced in Kashmir and accessed by MyNation, where a terrorist is seen threatening people to not tip off the security forces about them in the valley and asking them to help fight against the Indian forces.
“This shows that the common people may be getting forced to attend rallies or dharnas by the terrorists or separatists in the Kashmir valley, but they are actually with India and the forces are getting regular inputs from them about terrorists,” Col Ashish Khanna (Retd), a veteran of Kashmir operations told MyNation.
Sources in the army said that the terrorists, along with Pakistan, may be trying to create a perception that there is a genuine armed struggle going on in the Kashmir valley; but in reality, the local Kashmiris are fed up with the terrorists and are helping the security forces in bringing back peace in the valley.
In the video, a local Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist standing with an AK-47 assault rifle can be seen addressing people, speaking in a mix of Kashmiri and Hindi, and threatening against giving inputs to locals about them.
In the 3.56 min video, the terrorists can be seen telling people that they can fight with the forces but cannot manage to do so if the people don’t support them.
The security forces in the Kashmir valley have gained major success in counter-terrorist operations in the valley in the last couple of years due to specific intelligence-based operations, where more than 200 terrorists were killed last year. More than 110 have been eliminated in similar operations this year till July 31.
