To understand what impact Afghanistan can have on Kashmir, we need to go back 34 years in history, to 1987, to see how insurgency started in Kashmir, find if Afghanistan impacted Kashmir back then? What changed since — and we’ll probably have answer to our question! //thread//

I believe ceasefire still remans intact because India wants it that way given the situation at LAC. India would not want an active tangle with Pakistan at this point of time. Also, if LoC becomes hot, it'll only make infiltration easier, unlock more easier targets for militants.
@kashmirosint Do you think these ops in Poonch etc will hasten the end of ceasefire??

A single group of militants in multiple units or multiple groups of militants are engaging Indian army in a deadly jungle-warfare. If you're asking about missing JCO, the most reliable update is that the body is at the gunfight site, will be fetched after ops concludes. Period.
Replying to @kashmirosint
What exactly is going on in poonch?

#Kashmir/#India: Islamic State Wilayah Hind releases edition 21 of its monthly magazine Sawt Al-Hind (Voice of Hind), full of anti-Shia content, Taliban, Pakistan, India and Hindu bashing. The magazine also cherishes killing of a Hindu street food seller in Srinagar recently.

I have not seen Islamic State support channels showing any interests in operations carried out by non-IS jihadists in Kashmir before, but they seem to be paying interest in Poonch, one channel posts, "History is being made in Poonch, only time will prove who will be the hero."

We will see how this ages.
TRF issues threat to Indian security agencies, specifically mentioning NIA. “The game has just begun,” it says.

The images/video on Weibo, of Indian soldiers in PLA captivity post-Galwan clash, are both distressing & revealing. Distressing for the state our soldiers are in and revealing of how truth on national security issues has been buried. I write @TheIndiaCable theindiacable.com/p/india-sl…

There are many Indian and Pakistani accounts on Twitter who do not know s**t about Kashmir, but they continue posting hot-takes, fantasies and news (fake) masquerading as specialists of sorts. Some of the Indian accounts have over 100 thousand followers.
Situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir is intense and likely to go more intense in coming days because students have become active.
