Five Indian Security Personnel, Three Militants Killed In Clashes In Kashmir

Kashmir has been under a strict curfew and communication blackout for much of the last year

Five Indian security forces and three militants were killed in related incidents in Kashmir on Monday and Tuesday, in one of the deadliest clashes in the disputed Muslim-majority region since its autonomy was revoked by India’s central government last year.

According to Indian authorities militants attacked a security checkpoint at Suchpora Kreeri, north of the main city of Srinagar, on Monday morning and killed one local policeman and two officers from the paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force.

In a counter operation by security forces, two militants were killed while a soldier also died in the initial clashes. By Tuesday morning the number of militants killed in the encounter had gone to up to three while five security forces personnel were also killed. The security forces personnel killed during the clash include two army soldiers, two CRPF personnel and a policeman.

Police identified the third militant killed in the operation as Usman, a Pakistani national and a top Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander. They said he was one of the two militants who killed BJP leader Waseem Bari, his father and his brother in Bandipore in July.

Indian police had previously claimed, on July 12, to have killed Usman and two more militants in an operation in Sopore’s Reban village. On that occasion police had said that Usman was involved in the firing on paramilitary forces, resulting in the death of a CRPF man and a civilian. LINK

In recent weeks, militants have intensified attacks on village council members and other leaders in Kashmir. Five councillors have been shot dead in the past three months, prompting police to move 1,000 village leaders to high-security zones. Many of those attacked belong to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). LINK

On Tuesday of this week an army spokesperson confirmed that three militants had been killed in the operation while two more soldiers, in addition to the three security personnel killed yesterday, had died from their wounds. One AK 47 rifle and three pistols have been recovered from the encounter site.

Indian authorities claim that militant commander Usman was among the top commanders of LeT and with the death of both Sajad alias Hyder and Usman in the Kreeri operation, the LeT has suffered a significant loss.

“Two top commanders of the LeT outfit have been eliminated in the Kreeri operation. The terrain and the topography of the area delayed in concluding the operation fast. The security forces lost five jawans in the operation,” he said. “Drones were also used in the operation, however, since the area was dense, dotted with trees, the drones could not yield the desired result.” LINK

Last week, two policemen were killed in a militant attack on Friday.

This month Kashmir, claimed by both India and Pakistan, marked one year since New Delhi revoked its constitutional autonomy, infuriating the people of Kashmir and inflaming religious tensions in the region. Kashmir has been disputed by India and Pakistan since the end of British colonial rule in 1947. Both countries claim it in full but rule it in part. Many Kashmiris want independence and consider the occupying forces of both countries to be uninvited and unwanted guests.

The move to revoke Indian-occupied Jammu and Kashmir’s special constitutional status and autonomy is widely seen as as another step in the erosion of Kashmiri and Muslim rights by India’s Hindu-nationalist government. New Delhi rejects that argument and claims that the changes will promote economic development and bring the region closer to the rest of the country.

Earlier this month, Indian authorities imposed a strict curfew in Kashmir in anticipation of protests ahead of 5 August – the day last year that the central government announced it was revoking Kashmir’s status guaranteed by Article 370 of the Indian Constitution. The state was split into two federally-administered regions and its semi-autonomous status and system of government were revoked, as well as abolishing restrictions on the ownership of land in the region.

Officials said that the curfew was meant to prevent violence by groups planning to observe 5 August as ‘black day’, and additional troops were deployed to the region to enforce the lockdown.

Last year, thousands of Kashmiris were detained during the lockdown that was imposed in the days after the decision was announced, and a communications blackout was imposed that included severing all internet access in the region, in a pre-emptive move to thwart protests. Due to the strict lockdown and the detention of thousands of people, including three former chief ministers of the state, protests against the move were largely controlled.

The state was under curfew-like conditions for months following the revocation of Kashmir’s special constitutional status. And then, when things started getting back to normal, the pandemic struck. The communications blackout has been in place for most of the year. LINK

India needs to get out of Kashmir.

Paul

You need to gtfo of your house you fucking pis

Paul

Time to kill Palis and the Chinese ass**&les.They are responsible for this.

HiaNd

Like I have said already before; “Hindus hate Muslims and terrorize Muslims in Kashmir” !
Yet some Hindus come to this forum to spit on Russia and Putin (pretending that they defend Muslim interests) officially being so called (would be) “allays of Russia”
In reality they are just US-IsraHell stooges and bots for Zionists and back stabbers of Russia here.

Muslims try to learn who is your real friend, do not be manipulated and turn against coalition with Russia

Paul

Hindus don’t care what russia does as long as Russia doesn’t support China.

HiaNd

Russia doesn’t care what India wants.
Nobody can dictate to Russia world power, not even US.
Russia has always been friendly to India while India is always double faced and sitting on two chairs
One of them is ZIONIST chair where India’s heart belongs obviously.

Paul

Even Putin knows China can’t be trusted.Soon the dragon will run out of resources and people and it will be destroyed :)FYI just read about the three gorges dam.Its about to collapse and it’s gonna destroy southern China :)

HiaNd

Whatever.
Putin knows that India can’t be trusted also.

Your Western propaganda narrative (produced in CIA “think-tank” STRATFORD long time ago) doesn’t impress me.

No “little yellow men” invading Siberia yet, while that propaganda story is 20 years old…
(but they just might invade another chunk of India….I don’t know ;)

Actually that “China danger” story to spook Russia it is repetitive and BORING !

Recipe to divide China and Russia (to easier destroy them) is not going to work.
Americunts are just too stupid, to make their plans come true.
So hold your breath and wait till “Gorges dam” collapses by than China will be leading high tech country in the world while you will continue to take shit behind your house.

Paul

Sweet dreams bast@rd.

HiaNd

Is that the best answer you can produce?
How pathetic and trivial .
I feel pity for you.

Paul

Go suck Xi’s dick you as***le

HiaNd

If I were you I would watch my heart condition….have you been watching any cow porn recently…so you starting to lose your compass?

Paul

Better than raping 5 year old girls I guess.But pretty normal for you guys

HiaNd

Ha ha ha a PRIMITIVE Indian that shits behind his house and still lives in the casts where women and Muslimas are less worthy than cow is lecturing me East European about morals and civilization?!

It is your JEWS and AMERICUNTS and LGBTQ WEST Europans that are PEDOPHILES !
We East Europeans still have fun having sex with women old fashioned way (send your teenage daughter if you don’t believe)

Paul

Turkey effed your stupid eastern European region in the past and soon will dominate over you filthy people.Your region is nothing but full of prostitutes and drug addicts.You guys have the highest HIV rates in the world.I agree that India is still a developing country but your region is a shithole too my friend.

HiaNd

Ha ha ha !!
You have run out of intelligent threats now you want to try your luck with the stupid one?!
So Sultan Erdogan will invade parts of Eastern Europe like Otomans did 500 years ago?!
Woow I should than go packing my things and go to visit Danish idiot Jens on Greenland before Turks arrive?!
Well they have already “invaded” Germany and Austria in 1970’s as cheap working force.
Just like you Indians are CHEAP working force, slaves to the Muslim Arabs…

Ha ha ha ha !
I like your sense of humor, trying to say something intelligent and than saying something totally stupid instead!

You are not even average intelligent and educated Indian but on stupid and illiterate side aren’t you?
Be patient and start reading it is never too late.

Zionism = EVIL

Not sure this cunt is even Slavic. BTW, as I said the other day, the Pakis have increased support for regional terrorism again with Saudi funding. Even Sheikh Abdullah and his son Farook rejected a union with the Paki shithole. Modi using Zionist failed tactics has alienated Kashmiris for no reason. Repression always creates a reaction. I was in Srinagar back in 2010 and most people went about there business and there was very little pro-Pakistan sentiment, I think unnecessarily brutalizing any population will lead to resistance, look at the Tamils, Bangladesh, Baluchistan and now even the Pashtun areas. The problem with the Zionist model of repression is that it is based on hubris and fails to recognize demographics. India has a large mostly integrated Muslim population which is not going anywhere, so the best approach is to work with it and end Wahhabi influence. India is mostly Shia anyway and extremist appeal is quite limited. Kashmir is exploited by the Pakis for their domestic reasons and India should turn the tables in Baluchistan, where there is a serious national liberation movement against Paki army repression. The corrupt generals have allocated all the good land around Gwader for their families and the Baluch are literally eating rocks.

HiaNd

Ha ha ha pathetic ass licker and Turk cock sucker is at it again !

You pathetic Iranian bot, cock sucking prostitute!!

India just last year has canceled oil export contracts of Iranian cheap oil and by doing that betrayed Iran in the situation very difficult for them!

You have personally up-voted several of my comments about Hindu oppression of Muslims in Khasmir and their anti-Muslim attitude!
And now you are offering yourself to suck kock of Indian?!

Do you at least have ONE honest bone in your traitorous body of notorious LIAR and CROOK ?!!?
I doubt it !

I have never seen more sleazy cowardly back stabbing prostitute than you in my entire life !

Liberal guy

True

Paul

Chineze ass**** will soon pay a heavy price for what they have done.Wait and watch.

HiaNd

If I were Chines I would shake in my boots out of fear now…
You are no match against the Chinese army, not even close, any more.
Just continue with your aggressive posturing against Pakistan (but try also not to upset China while you doing that ;)

Paul

Bark all you can.You will see what In the USA and india are gonna do.You have underestimated India and overestimated China.You will see the results soon.

HiaNd

Yeah….USA will send you their new 14 BILLION air carrier that doesn’t work and than they will be forced to send it back because it still doesn’t work…and they’ll do it, before it sinks.

Anyways your words just confirm India’s Zionist orientation and betrayal of Asia.
You were born British slaves and all you have learned by now is how to change the Master.
Keep kissing US arse! There is not single US allay that was not betrayed by US at some point. You have been screwed before by US and you will be screwed again and you don’t deserve better!

شبيح

From a neutral view, US remains the most powerful. Even though I don’t like US foreign policies nor do I support them, US have powerful allies and strong logistics, Im not saying that Russia and China are far behind the US in terms of power. Biggest countries like US, Russia and China certainly want to avoid big conflicts among each other and among their neighboring countries, but you never know what the future is hiding for us.

HiaNd

Wisely and knowledgeably spoken.
Can’t agree more with every word.
I’m just teasing this guy, that was not serious conversation.

Muslims need to liberate India from filthy disgusting Hindus.
