Four personnel of the Indian Army, including two officers, have tragically lost their lives during a confrontation with terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri area. The fallen heroes comprise two officers and two jawans.
The incident occurred amidst a targeted operation against a group of terrorists detected in the region, prompting the deployment of troops, including Special Forces. The operation, under the close supervision of the 16 Corps Commander and the Rashtriya Rifles’ Romeo Force commander, was initiated based on precise intelligence. This led to a joint operation in the Gulabgarh forest of the Kalakote area in Rajouri District.
The Indian Army’s White Knight Corps, overseeing the anti-terror operation, reported that the terrorists have been wounded and encircled, with efforts ongoing to neutralize the threat. The confrontation began on November 22, evolving into an intense exchange of fire.
Despite being in a challenging situation, the Indian Army personnel exhibited extraordinary bravery and commitment to minimize collateral damage, especially to women and children, aligning with the highest traditions of the Indian Army. The situation remains tense, with operations continuing in the area.
