Intelligence reports suggest terrorist attack on camps of security forces in Anant Nag and Shopian
New Delhi: A unilateral ceasefire was announced by the Union Home Ministry in Jammu and Kashmir in view of the Holy month of Ramzan for Muslims, but the threat of a terrorist attack on the Army camps is looming large despite this initiative by the Government of India.
As per intelligence sources, there is a possibility of an attack on camps of security forces in Anant Nag and Shopian. Intelligence agencies have information that a group of three terrorists might attack bases of the security forces in these two areas. Therefore, despite the announcement of a ceasefire in the state, security forces in Anant Nag and Shopian are on high alert.
As per intelligence sources, terrorists don't want this ceasefire to succeed therefore they are trying every bit to disturb the peace in the region. They want to create such an environment that messages travels all across that ceasefire is not a solution to the problem and it is also not a right step in the same direction. Terrorist organizations have already declared they don't accept any such ceasefire.
Sources in the security agencies said that due to Non-Initiation of Combat Operation (NICO), security forces are unable to conduct Cordon and Search Operations and Search and Destroy Operations. So the terrorists are able to execute their activities. During the ceasefire proper and enough intelligence reports are also not coming in which in turn benefitting terrorists.
As per sources, in the year 2017 there were 860 incidents of ceasefire violation along the border and this year so far 881 ceasefire incidents have taken place so far. Sources in the security forces said that security forces are under pressure when there is unilateral ceasefire. This does not help armed forces rather terrorist get chance to regroup. There is a possibility of attack getting intensified during ceasefire because they want to spoil the environment and to give a message that it does not mean anything to them.
