China rushes thousands of police to restive Xinjiang

BEIJING: China has rushed thousands of special police forces to Urumqi, capital city of northwestern Xinjiang province, where it is battling to contain separatist East Turkestan militants, some of them trained in neighbouring Pakistan.

Thousands of special policemen have been transferred to Urumqi
from the regional public security department, state-run Xinhua news
agency reported without specifying the reasons for the deployment.


The fresh deployment would be in addition to stationing of Snow
Leopards, China best known anti-terrorism unit in Urmuqi as well as in
the border town of Kashghar, located close to the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).


The restive province has been witnessing large scale violence and
terrorist activities since last two years and about 200 hundred people
have been killed and large numbers injured in riots by Uyghurs
protesting over the growing settlements of Hans.

The area has also witnessed periodic violent attacks staged by East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM).


To contain separatist violence, the Chinese rushed in the Leopard force
in the aftermath of the attacks by ETIM militants against members of
Han community in which several people were killed.

The Kashghar
administration said the militants who were subsequently killed were
trained in terrorist training camps in Pakistan, which subsequently
stepped up cooperation to crackdown on ETIM militants drawn from the
ranks of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.

Xinjiang
is a large, sparsely populated area, spanning over 1.6 million km2
(comparable in size to Iran or Western Europe), which takes up about one
sixth of the country's territory. Xinjiang borders the Tibet Autonomous
Region and India's Leh District to the south and Qinghai and Gansu
provinces to the southeast, Mongolia to the east, Russia to the north,
and
Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to
the west.

    • @Ofaqet

      To say Han is a separate ethnicity in China today is like saying the Yellow Sea is different than the China Sea. There are some rough boundaries, but the water is all mixed together.

    • @joe prole is LA culture different from NY to Florida to Colorado.. XINJIANG is a Provence(state/city) to Shanghai to Beijing. Xinjiang belongs to the Hans and the culture and heritage dates back 10000 years. Turkestan are nomad from Turkey after the battle with Genghis Khan of Mongolia.

  • The Uighurs are seeing their land invaded by Han chinese who have a different culture, language and even script. The Uighurs are a very ancient ethnic group and their culture is quite interesting.
    There are interesting videos to be seen on YT if you put Turfan, Urumqi, Kashgar and other city names in the search.
    Also thanks to the annexation of this region to China, China became a direct neighbor of Pakistan, and now China is going to build a road and rail link through Pakistan to the Arabian Se More..

    • @khamomil it belongs to China... For 10000 years. Uighurs are related to the Turks.. Hans are related people to Mongolia.. Xinjiang is a Hans name well before Turkestan/Urumqi. They are not ancient cause they were nomads after the Ottoman Empire vs Genghis Khan of Mongolia. There are many ancient Han temples, building structuresfrom China's oldest Dynasty Empires.

    • @LostSomewhereInSpace pfft, dont get ahead of yourself, there have been dozens of uprisings in xinjiang from before 9/11 and they have all been flattened.
