Pakistan to send 100 terrorists from Afghanistan to Kashmir

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been making provocative statements targeting India following its decisions on Kashmir, and even suggested recently that a Pulwama-like terror attack may take place again

New Delhi: Pakistan is planning to push 100 hardcore terrorists from Afghanistan into Kashmir to carry out attacks as part of its larger design to create unrest in the Valley, security sources said on Thursday.

In addition, around 15 Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists are already waiting at the terror launch-pads in Lipa valley along the Line of Control on the Pakistani side to infiltrate in Kashmir, they said, citing reports by intelligence agencies.

According to intelligence inputs, Pakistan-based terror groups may target vital installations in several key Indian cities in the next few weeks, sources said.

Pakistan’s plan is to trigger series of terror attacks in Kashmir to project to the international community that situation in the Valley is fast deteriorating following India’s decision to withdraw special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and bifurcate the state into two union territories, they said.

“We have credible intelligence that Pakistan is bringing over 100 hardcore terrorists from Afghanistan and they will be pushed into Kashmir in the next few weeks,” said a military source.

Mufti Rauf Asghar, brother of JeM Chief Maulana Masood Azhar, held meetings with top commanders of the terror outfit at its Bahawalpur headquarters on 19 and 20 August with a primary agenda of pushing hardcore terrorists into Kashmir, sources claimed.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has been making provocative statements targeting India following its decisions on Kashmir, and even suggested recently that a Pulwama-like terror attack may take place again.

According to Pakistan’s assessment, the local terrorists in Kashmir are not properly trained, have low shelf-life and there was a leadership crisis among them in the Valley because of vigorous anti-terror operations, the sources said.

“That is why Pakistan is bringing battle-hardened terrorists from Afghanistan”, they added.

Sources claimed Pakistan has set up Kashmir desks at all its foreign missions to carry out anti-India propaganda in the wake of India’s decisions on J&K.
