Six militants were killed as a major infiltration bid was foiled by the Indian Army in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday. “In the last 48 hours, infiltration attempts have been foiled at the Gurez, Machhil, Naugam and Uri sectors. Seven armed intruders have been eliminated so far,” said the army in a statement.

The Army statement said the intruders were being provided active support, including covering fire (heavy calibre artillery) by Pakistani army posts on the LoC to assist them to enter the Kashmir Valley. Efforts to sanitise the area are being conducted by the security forces.

According to a PTI report, the total number of infiltrating militants killed over the last three days in various sectors has gone up to 12 after today’s operation. An army official said that a counter-infiltration operation was going on in Uri since yesterday after the troops observed movement of militants trying to sneak into the valley from across the border.

Earlier on May 26, two Pakistani Border Action Team(BAT) members who tried to infiltrate into Uri sector in Baramulla district to carry out an attack on the soldiers were killed by the Army. In the present year, a total of 43 militants have been killed and the Army has been successful in preventing 23 infiltration attempts along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.

      Modi government has inherited a formidable military machine. We have 1.3 billion manpower enlarge our conventional armed forces and nuclear forces. stan is small and used by other countries thus handle her cleverly. To bring immediate peace to Kashmir is easy do it and also work for the liberation of POK. Every inch of Bharat is sacred.

              Kashmir problem is like a fight between an elder big brother and the younger,...and the younger is bent upon taking fight to any low level (terrorism) to get right over inheritance. Things do not workout like that in this world. The younger one has tried religion as a tool, then terrorism as a tool, and in the process has become naked. It is begging for money from everone, and taking loans from any credit company (china), oblivious of the fact all of its inheritance is at risk. Time is ripe to get all separatist and corrupt kashmiri leaders behind bars. They will just keep destroying peace and keep fil their pockets with hawala money. It is heartening to know that they spent almost half the money sent from Pathista on their own self. They still deserve punishment as no tax was pa on that illigetimate money. Punishment should be made 10 fold, and imprisoned for life, for playing with future of our nation's children by giving them violent mentality.

                Where the F did you get the brother analogy, Mr. Nishant? This is not a feuding brother. This is a mad dog. It has rabies and it wants to give you rabies. They split from India citing they could only live under Islamic leadership. Now those that are deciding their fates are Atheists from China. Under Paris accord, China is dismant its coal fired plant and is relocating them to stan. Now stan will suffocate and get sick and China will take the Power that no stani will be able to afford anyways. They know they are being buggered in their behind by the Chinese, but they are so fixated by their hate of Hindus that they do not feel the pain to the Chinese raping them in the bee hind.

                  I apologize, I mistook your comment to be about Pack-e-stan. Regarding Kashmir, they are Indians infected with Pack-i-stani rabies. It they (and that will never happen) go with stan, every Kashmiri man will be a naukar in the stani households and every Kashmiri woman will end up being a pros ute on the streets from Karachi to Peshawar.
