Siege by troops triggers clashes in Pulwama village

In occupied Kashmir, clashes broke out between Indian troops and protesters in Pulwama district against a cordon and search operation launched by the troops today. The operation is launched by the troops in Bongam area of Karimabad village.

After the cordon, a group of youth assembled near the site and staged anti-India protests.

The forces used force and fired teargas shells on the protestors triggering clashes.

Indian troops also launched a cordon and search operation in Kokernag area of Islamabad district.

However, operation is called off in view of stiff resistance offered by the youth.
