An operation to neutralize terrorists who have set up shop in the forested area on a mountainous terrain is currently underway in the Anantnag district. As the campaign to expel the ultras reached its fourth day on Saturday, security personnel used drones to locate terrorists.
The two to three trapped terrorists will be neutralized, according to Additional Director General of Police (Kashmir) Vijay Kumar, who also stated that the operation was started based on specific information. He also cautioned retired Army and police officers against promoting the ambush theory in the media.

Four soldiers have now died as a result of their injuries as of Friday. The army has not yet officially confirmed that the fourth member of the operation’s crew died.
