The Indian Army on Saturday announced that in the past 24 hours, 10 heavily armed terrorists had been eliminated.

As per reports in ANI, the Army said that ops by security forces have prevented attempts by Pakistan and Pakistan-sponsored agents to spread terror in the Valley in the run up to the holy month of Ramzan.

Earlier in the day, security forces dealt a major blow to Hizbul Mujhadeen on Saturday when they killed one of the most wanted commanders Sabzar Ahmad Bhat along with his aide at Saimoo village in Tral area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district.

Bhat, who was the successor of Hizbul Mujhadeen leader Burhan Wani, was gunned down after security forces launched an operation in the Samoo village on Friday night.

Unlike his mentor Burhan, Bhat hailed from a poor family of Rathsuna village in Tral. He was a village boy who was radicalized before he joined the militants and rose from the ranks to become Burhan’s close aide. He, along with Zakir Musa, were touted to be two close lieutenants and advisors of Burhan Wani before he was gunned down on July 8 2016 in Bamdoora village of south Kashmir’s Anantnag district.

Elsewhere, the army foiled a major infiltration bid and killed six militants on the Line of Control in Rampur sector of Uri in North Kashmir’s Baramulla district.

The encounter broke out after militants fired at the army patrol before fleeing from the spot. Security forces immediately cordoned off the whole area and sealed all the entry and exit points and started the operation. “Encounter started at Saimu Tral district. Reportedly three terrorists trapped,” tweeted Dr SP Vaid, director general of police, Jammu and Kashmir.

On Saturday morning, when security forces resumed the operation and were moving towards the target, they came under heavy fire from the militants. In the ensuing gun fight, two militants were killed.
