 Two new Corps Commanders in J& K

New Delhi, June 20
The Indian Army has issued formal orders for appointment of new Corps Commanders at Srinagar-based 15 Corps and Leh-based 14 Crops, both in Jammu and Kashmir.

Also a formal announcement has been made to appoint Lt General DS Hooda as the Northern Army Commander.

Though Lt General Hooda is already functioning as the Northern Army Commander-designate after Lt Gen Sanjeev Chachra retired on May 31, his formal orders say he will be deemed to have assumed charge on July 1.

Lt General Hooda earlier commanded the Nagrota-based 16 Crops — also in J&K. He was replaced by Lt General KH Singh in April.

Lt General Subrata Saha, who was till now posted in the office of Director General Military Operations (DGMO), will replace Lt General Gurmit Singh at Srinagar-based 15 Crops on June 23. At Leh, Lt General BS Negi will take over from Lt Gen Rakesh Sharma. — TNS

Rebels seize chemical weapons unit
Baghdad/Washington, June 20
Sunni radicals in Iraq, who have overrun a swathe of territory north of Baghdad in a lightning offensive, have taken control of one of Saddam Hussein's former chemical weapons factories, a US official has said.

"We are aware that the ISIL has occupied the Al Muthanna complex," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement.

But she said she didn't think the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants would be able to produce usable chemical weapons there, because any materials remaining are old and unwieldy. The complex, located just 72 km northwest of Baghdad, began producing mustard gas and other nerve agents, including Sarin, in the early 1980s soon after Hussein took power. — Agencies
