Security forces kill 4 terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district

Four terrorists were gunned down in the Sindhara area of Poonch district in Jammu and Kashmir in a joint operation conducted by the Indian Army, Rashtriya Rifles, and Jammu and Kashmir Police personnel, 

The encounter, named “Operation Trinetra II,” began around 11:30 pm on Monday after security forces acted on specific intelligence inputs. Using drones and night surveillance equipment, the forces initially engaged in a confrontation with the terrorists. The operation was temporarily suspended until early morning when a heavy exchange of fire resumed.

The terrorists had been contained in a small area, with additional forces deployed to cordon off the location. This operation was particularly significant as it took place near the site where security forces had recently lost their lives.

The militants were carrying four AK-47 rifles, two pistols, and warlike stores. Authorities suspect the killed terrorists to be foreigners, and their identities are currently being verified.

This incident follows another successful operation on Monday when two terrorists were killed while attempting to infiltrate across the Line of Control (LoC) in Poonch.
