Three soldiers killed in Indian Kashmir attack

Author: AFPThu, 2017-04-27 07:16ID: 1493271883779429300INDIA: Suspected militants attacked an army garrison in Indian Kashmir on Thursday, killing three soldiers amid an uptick in violence in the restive region.
The incident occurred just a day after Indian authorities in the area ordered Internet service providers to block 22 social media services including Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp for a month to maintain “public order.”
Army spokesman Rajesh Kalia said two attackers were also killed during the pre-dawn assault in Kupwara district near the de facto border that divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan.
Search operations were in progress to see if more attackers were hiding.
Roughly 500,000 Indian soldiers are deployed in Kashmir, which has been divided between India and Pakistan since the end of British rule in 1947. Both claim the territory in its entirety.
Anti-India sentiment runs deep in the Kashmir valley, one of the world’s most heavily militarised spots where most people favor independence or a merger with mainly Muslim Pakistan.
Clashes between rebels and government forces have become more frequent since the killing of a popular rebel leader, Burhan Wani, by Indian security forces last July which sparked widespread unrest.
In September, 19 Indian soldiers were killed in an attack on the Uri army base, which India blamed on Pakistan-backed militants and which pushed tensions to dangerous levels.
Wednesday’s move to block social media was the first time the government took such a step, although it regularly blocks the mobile Internet signal in the volatile valley.Main category: WorldTags: KashmirIndiaPakistanKupwararelated_nodes: Indian Kashmir blocks social media after clashesIn Kashmir, brutality of videos deepens anger against IndiaKashmir students, Indian forces clash as protests continueThe post Three soldiers killed in Indian Kashmir attack appeared first on aroundworld24.com.

Large blast and fire near Damascus airport

A massive blast near Damascus International Airport early on Thursday was likely caused by an Israeli air strike said Lebanon’s al-Manar, a television channel affiliated with the Syrian government ally Hezbollah. A spokeswoman for the Israeli military, asked if Israel had been involved in carrying out air strikes targeting Damascus airport, said: “We can’t comment on such reports.” Two senior rebel sources operating in the Damascus area cited their monitors in the eastern outskirts of the capital where the airport is located as saying that five strikes had hit an ammunition depot used by Iran-backed militias. Al-Manar said initial indications were that the blast had caused only material damage and no human casualties.
