Srinagar/New Delhi: The government is learnt to have decided to cut short the Amarnath Yatra based on intelligence inputs from the security agencies that the Jaish-e-Mohammed based in Pakistan has planned a series of terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir. According to intelligence inputs, Ibrahim Azhar, elder brother of Masood Azhar who was rumoured to have been killed in the Indian airstrike on Balakot, is about to push 15 dreaded terrorists into the Indian State.
Following this critical intelligence information, the government had to take a decision to deploy additional security forces in the Valley to deal with any threat. Sources said that 15 terrorists were fully prepared to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir after Askari (عسكري Arabic for military) training in terrorist training camps in the Jamrud area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
Sources: Reports of Ibrahim Azhar (JeM chief Masood Azhar's brother) resurfacing in PoK came alongside further intercepts that confirmed that a group of 15 trained JeM cadres had reached JeM camps in Markaz, Sanan Bin Salma, Tarnab Farm, Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa… (1/2)

Pakistan has deployed its SSG commandos to help these terrorists. The intention of this group of terrorists is to launch a BAT (Border Action Team) strike on Indian soldiers.
Sources said that Ibrahim Azhar is masterminding this conspiracy. Ibrahim is the head of Jaish-e-Mohammed in PoK. He has been seen with these 15 terrorists in different training camps in Markaz, Sanan bin Salma, Tarnab Farm, Peshawar and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The first group of three terrorists is waiting at the launch pad in the Nezapur sector of PoK, across the Shahpur sector in Poonch.
Jammu and Kashmir Police, CRPF and Army had yesterday addressed a joint press conference in Srinagar where they said that they had come to know that the terrorists, equipped with arms and ammunition were all set to attack Amarnath pilgrims.
Security forces have recovered arms, IEDs and sniper rifles from the route of the Amarnath Yatra. The weapons and ammunition recovered by the security forces include the anti-personnel mines manufactured by the ordnance factory of Pakistan, which confirms the involvement of the Pakistani Army in the plot of attack.
Keeping in view their safety, pilgrims have been asked to return from the Valley.
As reported correctly by Sirf News, the family member of Masood Azhar who was killed in the Balakot airstrike was Yousuf Azhar and not Ibrahim Azhar.
