According to the statement Muhammad Bin Qasim is the new Field Operational Commander nominated by the  Hizbul Mujahideen chief Syed Salahudin in an extra ordinary Command Council Meeting.The council paid rich  tributes to t, Yasin Yatoo alias Mehmood Ghaznawi, the successor of Burhan Muzaffar Wani  and his associates  Engineer Irfan, and Umer Majeed, the statement said.

Hizb chief while paying the tribute to martyrs said,  “their martyrdom is extremely painful, but their blood will give further impetus to the Kashmir struggle. Time has proved that thousands of Burhan’s came forward, when Indian government had thought that Kashmir struggle will get weakened by Burhan’s  martyrdom.
