Jammu, Feb 7: Security forces killed 10 separatist guerrillas in Kashmir in the last two weeks while ensuring there was no civilian casualty in different operations, the army said on Sunday.
“Undeterred by inhospitable weather conditions, the army and the state police have upped the ante in their counter-terror operations. It is clearly manifested in the clinical, intelligence-based operations over the past two weeks that led to the elimination of 10 terrorists across Kashmir,” Colonel S.D. Goswami, spokesman of the army’s Udhampur-headquartered northern command, told IANS here.
“Conscious efforts are being made to ensure no collateral damage, which can be gauged from the fact that there has been no civilian casualty in any of these operations,” he added.
“The army always makes it a point to evacuate occupants of affected house(s) and adjacent areas at the scene of action to ensure public safety, often at cost of risking their own lives,” Colonel Goswami said.
