Indian Security Forces on High Alert

  • There are multiple reports that 20 Jaish-e-Mohammed members have entered Jammu and Kashmir and are preparing for large scale terror attacks
  • There is a fear that larger numbers that may have moved in over the Line of Control
  • Security forces in the state, as well as New Delhi have been put on a heightened alert
  • This comes days after an India-Pakistan ceasefire was reached in the contested region

 

Why It Matters: After months of shelling between India and Pakistan, any large scale terror attack would put the recently agreed upon ceasefire in jeopardy.
