Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan reacted on Friday to reports about possible infiltration of militants across the Line of Control (LoC), saying these claims are "predictable" to divert attention from developments in Jammu and Kashmir.
"We are hearing Indian media claims that some terrorists from Afghanistan have entered IOJK (Jammu and Kashmir) for terrorist activities, while others have entered India's southern regions. These claims are predictable to divert attention from India's ethnic cleansing and genocide agenda in IOJK," tweeted Khan.

"I want to warn the international community that the Indian leadership will in all probability attempt a false flag operation to divert attention from its massive human rights violations and the unleashing of a reign of terror in IOJK," Khan further said in a separate tweet.

Officials said that around 12 Afghan militants belonging to the JeM were active in the Leepa Valley and also that JeM founder Masood Azhar's brother Rauf Asghar had conducted a meeting in Bahawalpur city in Pakistan's Punjab province on August 19-20 to launch the terrorists from across the LoC into Kashmir.
