United Jihad Council (UJC) said they had unilaterally suspended its military operations in the wake of the floods in Kashmir. According to the militant amalgam, the suspension of operations will continue till “relief and rehabilitation” for people reaches “satisfactory levels”.
“Our militant operations will remain suspended till relief and rehabilitation for those affected reaches satisfactory levels,” UJC chief Syed Salah-ud-din told a local news agency. “The rescue, relief and rehabilitation (of people) is our first and foremost priority. All other things are secondary to us”.
The suspension of operations by militants is indefinite. “It (relief and rehab) is a Himalayan task for which deadlines can not be predicted,” Salah-ud-din said.
