ISLAMABAD: Indian occupation forces have martyred 32 Kashmiris in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) during the month of May.

According to data issued by the Kashmir Media Service, two teenagers were the latest victims of a ‘fake encounter’ by Indian troops. It said the total number of people killed in the month had risen to 32 with the two latest deaths.

During last month, at least 26 people were injured due to the use of brute force, which includes teargas shells and blasts in the territory.

Occupying forces destroyed 3 residential houses during 180 cordon and search operations in different areas of the territory, while arresting 92 people, mostly youth.

All Parties Hurriyat Conference spokesperson strongly condemned the surge in Indian state terrorism in IIOJK. He appealed to the international community to take heed of the grave human rights situation in the occupied territory and play a role in the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

National Conference President Farooq Abdullah said “the killing of a woman teacher in Kulgam district has put a question mark over the claims of peace and safety of people in IIOJK by the Indian government”.
