Three terrorists were shot dead by the Indian Army today as they attempted to cross the Line of Control (LoC) from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir into the Uri region of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Chinar Corps of the Indian Army announced the discovery of two terrorists’ bodies in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The Chinar Corps claimed that gunfire from Pakistani soldiers “interfered” with efforts to recover the third body.
According to the army, the operation in the Uri sector is still ongoing.
“Today in the early morning hours along the LoC in Uri sector, Baramulla, an infiltration attempt was thwarted thanks to a joint operation by the Indian Army, Jammu and Kashmir Police, and intelligence services. Alert troops engaged three terrorists who attempted to infiltrate, according to a post on X by the Chinar Corps.
“Two terrorists have been killed and their bodies recovered; a third terrorist has also been killed, but the removal of his body is being hampered by Pakistani post fire nearby, along the Line of Control. Operation ongoing, according to the army.
Another encounter with terrorists camped out in a cave on top of a hill in the Anantnag area is now in its fourth day.
