Jaish militant’s last video on Indian Channels

In army fatigues, brandishing a variety of weapons, and speaking in a soft voice, Jaish-e-Muhammad militant Adil Ahmad claimed responsibility for yesterday’s suicide car bomb attack on a CRPF convoy at the national highway which killed at least 49 Indian troops, then proudly recounted the Jaish’s history of major attacks.Adil Ahmad Dar, 20, from the village of Lethipora in Kashmir, rammed a car full of explosives into the convoy, escalating tension between the nuclear-armed neighbours, which both claim the rugged Himalayan region.”We are in pain in the same way the families of the soldiers are,” said farmer Ghulam Hassan Dar, adding that his son had been radicalised after police stopped him and his friends on the way home from school in 2016.”They were stopped by the troops and beaten up and harassed,” Dar said, adding that the students were accused of stone-pelting. “Since then, he wanted to join the militants.”
