Army using ‘through the wall’ radars imported from US, Israel to locate hiding militants in Kashmir: Report

Srinagar

The Indian army has imported “through the wall” radar systems from United States and Israel to detect militants in Kashmir valley, Times of India reported.

Quoting top army sources, the reports said that the radar systems will be used to detect the militants who hide behind walls or in houses during counter insurgency operations.

“Some Army formations have started using these imported radar systems in Kashmir,” the report quoted a source.

It is believed that the need for such hi-tech radars was felt after forces failed to locate militants during combing operations despite specific intelligence about the presence of militants in an area.

The radar system emits microwave radiation that can detect the presence of militants hiding behind walls or concrete barriers.
