“RELENTLESS OPERATIONS THWART DESPERATE ATTEMPTS BY PAKISTAN TO BOOST TERROR ACTIVITIES”
“Security forces in Jammu and Kashmir have mounted relentless operations to thwart attempts by Pakistan to boost terror activities from across the Line of Control. In the last 24 hours, 10 heavily armed intruders and terrorists have been successfully eliminated. In an ongoing counter-infiltration operation on the Line of Control in the Rampur sector, a group of 6 armed intruders have been intercepted and eliminated. In another counter-terrorist operation based on specific intelligence generated from local sources in Tral, South Kashmir has so far resulted in killing 2 terrorists. Earlier on 26 May 17, a BAT action attempted on an Indian army post by a group of heavily armed intruders through an area under control of a Pak army post in the Uri sector, was successfully intercepted resulting in killing of two intruders whose identities are yet to be established. In another operation, on 21 May 17 alert troops deployed in the Naugam sector eliminated four terrorists thereby foiling a major infiltration bid. In all the operations, Indian troops have recovered large quantity of war like stores. Relentless operations by security forces have defeated desperate attempts by Pak and Pak sponsored agents to spread terror in the state in the run up to the holy month of Ramzan.”
