After Pulwama terror strike, the Indian Army has succeeded in almost finishing the leadership of the dreaded terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Jammu-Kashmir. Due to effective army operations, now no one want to take up the group’s leadership in the Valley.
According to Lieutenant General KJS Dhillon 25 of the 41 terrorists were killed since February 14 Pulwama terror attack were members of Pakistan-based JeM.
“Post Pulwama 41 terrorists have been killed. Out of them 25 belonged to Jaish-e-Mohammed and 13 of them were Pakistanis,” he added. He said that they have targeted JeM leadership. Even after Pakistan’s best efforts, he said that Indian army will continue to suppress JeM, especially after Pulwama..
The Army commander added that a total of 69 terrorists have been killed and 12 have been apprehended this year. He said that operations against the terrorists will continue with full vigour and we will not let terrorism rise up.
The crackdown on terrorists in the Valley has also brought down the recruitment of local Kashmiri people in terror outfits. J-K DGP Dilbag Singh said, “Recruitment of local youth continues to be low. It is a healthy sign. 272 terrorists were eliminated in the state during 2018 and a large number were apprehended.”
