SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, the authorities continue to impose strict curfew and other restrictions across the Kashmir valley and at least five districts of Jammu region on the 18th consecutive day.
Thousands of people flouting curfew and other restrictions took to streets, at least, at 47 places across the territory and staged protest demonstrations against illegal Indian occupation and the abrogation of Article 370 by the Indian government.
Due to the blockade, a famine-like situation is emerging as people are facing a severe shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines and occupied Kashmir represents a humanitarian crisis in all its manifestations.
Landline, mobile phone services and internet remain suspended in the territory for the past over two weeks. A humanitarian crisis is unfolding as there is a growing shortage of essential commodities including baby food and life-saving medicines.
