The Death Toll In The Ongoing Operation In Poonch District Of Occupied Kashmir Since Monday Has Risen To Seven, Including Two Senior Officers, While Two Missing Soldiers Have Yet To Be Recovered.
Occupying forces have launched a major search operation in the Poonch area of Jammu on Saturday morning, October 16, following the disappearance and deaths of two personnel.
The Indian military has so far confirmed the deaths of seven soldiers, including two of its senior personnel, in the operation, but no militants have been reported killed so far.
The Indian army has not yet been able to reach the bodies of the dead soldiers and according to it, the task has become difficult due to the constant firing of militants. According to Indian security forces, the militants are in dense jungles and are not easy to pursue.
The clash erupted in the dense forests of the border areas between Poonch and Rajouri in Jammu Division on Monday, October 11.
The Indian military said a large number of security forces as well as helicopters were taking part in a large-scale operation Saturday morning to search for the missing soldiers.
It should be noted that this is the first time in recent years that the Indian Army has suffered so many casualties in a single armed conflict.
