The best part is tht in 3 years prior 2 Abrogation of 370, 124 civilians were killed in L&O but post Abrogation it's 0.
L&O incidents hve decreased by approx 90%.
Terror incidents have been reduced by approx 33% leading to approx 42% decrease in Civilian casualties.
A success!!
DGP (J&K) says-
"In the past four years, we have continued to maintain a record of zero civilian casualties during a law-and-order situation or during any anti-terror operation. This speaks for itself. Earlier there would be serious engagement at encounter sites,
people would get agitated, and they would throw stones. No such thing anymore. This is another big change."
I think that this is the biggest achievement of all the ranks of @KashmirPolice
Kudos to all the ranks of @JmuKmrPolice

With 26 top terrorist commanders killed in 7 months, there are less than 200 active #Terrorists in Kashmir with 50 active in North #Kashmir. Terrorists are shifting focus to North Kashmir but they are in for a “Grand Welcome” here by the #IndianArmy.

A #thread
#Terrorism in North #Kashmir in the past few year has waned off due to the relentless anti-terrorist operations by the #Army coupled with its initiatives to reach out to the people through its numerous goodwill activities,..
..thereby gaining the support & trust of the locals. That is why you’ll find the majority of the terrorists active in North Kashmir are #Pakistan #terrorists, with local recruitment at its lowest.

Acute shortage on weapons with #terrorists in #Kashmir. A #Thread

Terror tanzeems in Kashmir are short on weaponry, they don't have any arms reserve to give weapons to the new recruits, thus in recent attacks there is a desperation to snatch weapons from forces personnel.
The recent Pantha Chowk incident on 29 Aug, was a shoot and run attempt, the intent of the bike-borne #terrorists were to cause casualty and take away weapons, but they failed miserably with all three terrorists being gunned down.
Another instance was seen in #Handwara attack on #CRPF party, one AK-47 rifle was taken away, however, swift counter ops ensured #terrorists who carried out this attack were killed and weapon snatched away from a CRPF jawan was also recovered.

PDP-Mehbooba Mufti. A #Thread

The latest remarks by PDP claiming to fight #abrogation of #Article370 comes to no surprise. The party helmed by Ms Mehbooba #Mufti has a long history of peddling controversies in #Kashmir to gain political traction
(1/19) Image
#PDP was founded in 1998 Late #Mufti Mohammed Sayeed. Interestingly he was the state's Home Minister when the fateful abduction of Rubaiya Sayeed(his daughter)took place in 1989. Many believes this was the turning point in #Kashmir's history which propelled it into chaos
(2/19) Image
PDP Government’s blunders in #BhuranWani incident in 2016 saw a massive breakdown of governance in the history #Kashmir second only to 1989’s unrest.
It marked the revival of #Separatism & #terrorism, which had remarkably waned in the whole of Kashmir, between..

Doval had met his Paki counterpart in Bangkok few years back....
He told him about India's deep assets inside Pakistan who can take revenge anytime he wants...
This is one of the reason Paki misadventures didn't go beyond Kashmir. ImageImageImage

Incidently our forces sacrificed their life in order to save the civilians ,same civilians who support terrorists, give them their houses at hideaways ,who pelt stones at our men.
Same civilians who the liberals love to show as victims of atrocities.

We need to take lessons

1. We always rush in to do room interventions especially if so called civilian is involved. But often these are traps or overground workers of terrorists or just plain sympathisers. Later they will be found stone pelting

2. Room interventions are very risky. You don't know the house layout, where the enemy is, who the enemy is. Casualties are inevitable. No army does room interventions as much as we do. Stand off ops are better even if there is some collateral damage

3. Don't put pressure on commander on ground to rush the op for results. Take as much time as needed...4/5/6/7/8 days. The terrorists are trapped. Starve them out. Let them make a fighting break out. Then we can pick them off without own casualties

#Handwara Op. - A recurring, underlying theme

While this low intensity conflict cannot be stopped, there is no need to prove ones bravery or uphold unit's izzat by getting into closed/ built up spaces or getting into imminent harm's way, again & again.

In the present instance, the CO was a SM** having been decorated twice for gallantry in the Valley.

You do that 2-3 times, successfully...the 4th time, lady luck turns it's back on you.

Terrorists get holed up - blow/ burn the damn place down, pay compensation or if the buggers get away, so be it.
You will get them, anyway. Another day, another time...
