New Delhi: Undeterred by the inhospitable weather conditions, the Indian Army and the Jammu and Kashmir Police have upped the ante in their counter terrorist operations, neutralizing ten terrorists in two weeks.

The result of the operations are clearly manifested in the clinical , intelligence based operations over the past two weeks that have resulted in the elimination of ten terrorists in all parts of Kashmir.

Conscious efforts are being made to ensure no collateral damage during these encounters and it can be gauged from the fact that there has been no civilian casualty in any of these operations.

The Army personnel have been careful in evacuating the occupants of the affected house and from other adjacent areas from the scene of action to ensure safety of the people.

“The quantity of weapons, ammunition and other war like stores including explosives that have been recovered from the terrorists would have been a cause of major destruction and loss had it not been for the valiant efforts of all personnel of the army and police who have braved the initial volley of fire from the terrorists as also the rigours of weather before eliminating them in sustained operations even stretching overnight on occasions,” the Army said in a statement.
