Anantnag(S), 07 Apr 2020
Islamic State Wilayāh Hind claims the attack on Indian security forces in southern Anantnag district, says “Islamic State fighters attacked a gathering of SFs with machine guns & hand grenades, killing 2 of them, including an officer.”
However The statement by Islamic State is erroneous. As Per Indian security agencies, only one paramilitary trooper was killed in the grenade/ shooting attack, two others (paramilitaries) were injured.
ISIS in May 2019 had announced through its Amaq News Agency that it has established its first “province” in India. ISIS called the area, located within India’s northern state of Jammu and Kashmir, “Wilayah of Hind,” or Hind province.
