New Delhi: As many as seven terrorists were neutralized in various operations by the armed forces across Jammu and Kashmir in the last three-days, according to Army sources.
The Army foiled around 50 percent of the infiltration bids at the border, which have risen this year due to less severe winter.
In the last six months - from January 1 to June 16 - the Army has gunned down 60 terrorists while the state police have shot down four terrorists across the state. In the corresponding period last year, 32 terrorists were gunned down by the forces.
The Army sources further stated that it had suffered 39 casualties in the first half of the year, in which 11 were fatal and 28 were non-fatal.
The overall causality last year, however, stood at 33.
Sources have also said that the coordination between the Army and the other security forces in the state has been better this year.
