Srinagar/New Delhi: The days ahead for the Indian Army in Kashmir are going to be tough, but for the terrorists it would be even tougher. If one looks at the encounter that took place during the weekend, it was clear that the Army went all out to target the local cadre of the Hizbul Mujahideen who were planning Unrest 2.0 in the Valley. At least 11 out of the 12 terrorists killed were part of the Hizbul Mujahideen while the 12th was a Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist.
