Lashkar calls Id ceasefire

Srinagar, Dec. 4: For the first time since it mounted a bloody campaign in Jammu and Kashmir, the Lashkar-e-Toiba has announced a unilateral four-day ceasefire to let people celebrate Id-ul-Fitr in peace.

During the ceasefire, which will begin from tomorrow, the militant group has promised not to launch suicide strikes on security forces.

Lashkar chief spokesman Abu Huzaifa said over phone from Srinagar that the outfit has “decided to observe a unilateral ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir for the people to observe Id with fervour and gaiety”.

“We will not launch any fidayeen (suicide) attacks on security force camps or attack anyone on our hit-list, including politicians and pro-government militants, during the ceasefire,” he said.
