The beautiful houses where militants hide


In the 1990s, when militancy was at its initial stage in Kashmir, the militants would often hide in the woods. The fights with security forces also take place there. Only the dead bodies would come to the civilian areas. The trend changed 2010-11 onward when local youth started becoming militants. They would go to the woods and often come back to the neighborhoods for planning meetings and, may be, eating together. Since 2016, the security forces are believed to have improved their intelligence network helping them spot the houses were militants hide. Announcements are made on the public address system asking militants to surrender and the residents to separate for safety. In almost every case militants refuse to surrender. These pictures show what happens next:
