Srinagar, Aug 29: The security forces achieved major success, when they gunned down two terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir today. Both the terrorists to be gunned down were from the Hizbul Mujahideen.
The decision to resume ‘Operation All Out,’ in the Kashmir Valley is aimed at neutralising the top commanders of terrorist outfit. If one looks at the list prepared by the Indian Army, it features only the top terrorists who have been categorised as either A+ or A++.
Operation All Out which was launched in Kashmir has seen a tremendous success rate. Since its launch in 2017, the security forces have gunned down 170 terrorists including their top commanders as well. The killing of Talha Rashid, nephew of Jaish-e-Mohammad chief marked the death of the 170th terrorist in the Valley. The significant killings include Abu Dujana of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, Burhan Wani’s successor, Sabzar Ahmed Bhat among others.
When the Indian Army launched Operation Clean Up of Operation All Out, there was a conscious effort to go after the commanders instead of the foot soldiers. The past six months have seen a large number of commanders of various terror groups fall to the Army’s bullet.
The Indo-Bhutan border has become home for the dangerous National Democratic Front of Bodoland (Songbijit) or the NDFB(S).
