SRINAGAR - Indian Army GOC Northern Command Lt General Anbu said the militants are attacking softer targets as they are failing at the borders. "The enemy is frustrated and is trying softer targets.
When they fail at borders they attack camps. All 3 groups - HM, JeM or LeT are hand in glove. There's no differentiation, they keep jumping from one Tanzim to other.
Anyone who picks up an arm and is against the state, is a terrorist and we'll deal with them," he said.
Concerned over youngsters joining insurgency, GOC Northern Command said "we need to address this trend.
In 2017, we focused on leadership and eliminated it. Social media is also responsible for the increase in terror. It is engaging the youth on a large scale, and I think we need to focus on this issue."
