Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) is planning to carry out a major terror strike in Jammu and Kashmir, said sources in Intelligence Agencies. According to sources, Jaish is conspiring to launch a ‘fidayeen’ (suicide) attack on the security forces in the valley on May 11.

Sources claimed that the Jaish is feeling the pressure due to the continuous action by Indian security forces in Kashmir Valley and the banned terror group is looking for an opportunity to hit back. It is to be noted that a total of 28 terrorists were killed by security forces in April only.
