Stop helping forces, Harkat tells informers

Rebel group Harkat-ul-Mujahideen Friday asked ‘informers’ to stop helping Indian government forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

While claiming the responsibility of Handwor and Poonch attacks, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen Friday paid ‘glowing tribute’ to five rebels who were killed in these encounters in the state.

In a tele-statement to a news agency, spokesman of Harakat-ul-Mujahideen, Hassan Askaree said, “Five of our rebels who were killed in two different encounters in the Valley have also killed five army troopers while fighting.”

“They have sacrificed their lives for Kashmir struggle and their sacrifices won’t get waste. We ask informers to stop helping the forces,” Askaree said.

He said that chief commander of Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Mullah Zabiullah Mujahid and Operation chief Jammu and Kashmir, Moulana Sajjad Shahid have paid glowing tribute to these slain militants.
