LeT warns police of revenge attack of Abu Ismael killing
The militant outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba on 20 Sept 2017 said Mahmood Shah is the Chief of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), Jammu Kashmir whereas Abu Ismael, who was recently killed, held the position was a Commander, not a Chief.
In an emailed statement issued, LeT Spokesman Dr Abdullah Ghazanwi said for India to get their hands on LeT Chief, they must sacrifice a lot. “We would like to inform DGP S P Vaid that our commanding hierarchy won’t make sense to “poor minded Indian forces”. We don’t thrive upon statuses but performances. Our commanders claim their “bravery and trophies by attacking the Indian Army forces”, despite being low in resources, which is enough to tell who the commanding leader is. You’ll soon witness the wrath of substitute commander of Shaheed Abu Ismael,” said LeT in a statement.
The statement further reads that the youth of Kashmir bear passions and goodwill’s to join the ranks of Lashkar-e-Toiba.
“India itself is evident to the love, harmony and mutual understanding between local population and Mujahedeen. They have opted for the guns as their last resort in winning their freedom. They shall have their freedom at all costs,” Ghaznavi added.
It may be noted that Indian Army has been eliminating slowly all the leadership of LeT, JuD and other Militant organisations. It has come to light that for long there was no one to take up the post of LeT commander on the Indian side as security forces were able to kill each and every top LeT Militant and his aides. This has reduced the life expectancy of the militant leaders to less than three months of taking over the reins of command. The hit rate of militant was one militant per day on an average. We hope the security forces are able to nab all the militants much faster than in the recent past.
