After recent outbursts of violence in Xinjiang, in far western China, Chinese
communist authorities dispatched an “elite” anti-terrorism squad to carry out “anti-terrorist missions” on
Saturday.

China’s state media reported
that the “Snow Leopard Commando Unit” will
enter Southern Xinjiang
, while troop deployments in other areas of Xinjiang
will be extended as part of the “anti-terrorism operation.”

The move is
seen as part of the regime’s suppression and intimidation of Uyghurs, however.
Dilxat Raxit, a spokesman for the World Uyghur Congress (WUC), criticized the
regime for exerting psychological and political intimidation against Uyghurs
under the banner of anti-terrorism. But doing so will only deepen
the Uighurs’ discontentment
, he told The Epoch Times.

Twenty
“stability maintenance patrol vehicles” were deployed in Urumqi, the capital of
Xinjiang, on Aug. 9 and 10, according to iyaxin.com, a news portal in Xinjiang.

A motorcade of police, paramilitary officers, and other special-forces
drove through the streets of Kuqa in Xinjiang, making a prominent
show of the regime’s military strength
.

A man calling himself only
Gao, a resident of Northern Xinjiang, told The Epoch Times that, besides
military stationing in Xinjiang, Domestic Security
officers and military police also
stopped and questioned Uighur on streets. Domestic
Security forces are a much-feared unit that surveil and crack down on
Chinese dissidents, often using extralegal and brutal means.

The
authorities also extended the anti-terrorism operation to the grassroots, recruiting civilian informers.

Hu Jun, a human rights
activist in Xinjiang, told The Epoch Times that the authorities are operating a
defense alliance of the people in Xinjiang.Military police patrol the streets
around-the-clock and helicopters hover over the city constantly. People feel the
situation is very tense, he said.

Three incidents of violence broke out
in Xinjiang’s Hotan and Kashgar last month, among which the two incidents in
Kashgar at the end of July left at least 20 people dead.

Beijing blames
terrorists for the violence, but overseas Uyghur groups criticize the Chinese
regime’s coercive and restrictive ethnic policies.

Dilxat Raxit said the
regime’s repression has made Uyghurs feel unsafe at home, because Chinese
security forces can make forced entry into people’s houses, and take people away
for detention at any time, without going through any procedures.

He said local residents told him that if a Uyghur
refuses to cooperate or attempts to resist during a search, security forces are
allowed to shoot to kill on the spot. “This has completely deprived Uyghur of
the rights to use judicial process to defend
and appeal,” he said.
