ISLAMABAD, Sep 20 (APP): Indian Occupation Forces (IOFs) have resorted to possible use of chemical weapons to suppress the Kashmiris’ voices for freedom in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).
Upon failure to suppress the Kashmiris’ uprising, the IOFs in IIOJK had been using the banned weapons as the charred bodies of Kashmiri youth killed in the so-called cordon and search operations bore testimony to the suspected use of chemical weapons.
In the last five years, 37 Kahmiris had been burnt by IOFs, mostly likely by using chemical weapons.
The bodies were burnt to such an extent they were beyond recognition.
In December, 2016, the first incident of probable use of chemical weapons by the Indian army was reported in Anantnag which resulted in the killing of 22-year-old boy Majid Zargar.
On July 4, 2017, at Bahmnoo area of district Pulwama, IOFs killed Jehangri Khanday, Kiyfayat Ahmad and Faisal Ahmad, by using chemical weapons.
On November 2018, Mukhtar Ahmad Khan and Muhammad Amin Mir were killed by the Indian forces in Kupwara most likely with the use of chemical weapon during cordon and search operation.
On June 26, 2020, IOFs carried out another operation in Tral area of district Pulwama in which they destroyed 18 houses and burnt three youth by suspected use of an unknown chemical which not only burnt the bodies but also de-shaped them by converting them into a lump of clay.
