Jammu and Kashmir: 40 foreign terrorists killed this year, terror outfits face leadership crisis

Jammu and Kashmir Police has said that 40 foreign terrorists have been killed in the Kashmir region in 2022 so far. Most of these terrorists belonged to either Lashkar-e-Taiba or Jaish-e-Mohammad terror outfits. The director-general of Jammu and Kashmir Police said that most of the leadership of these terror outfits has been wiped out.

He also said that there has been an evident drop in the terror outfit recruitments in the Kashmir Valley. And there is a leadership crisis among these terror groups in the Valley. 

« We have managed to destroy the structure of these terror outfits. Pakistan always wants foreign terrorists to hold command of outfits like Lashkar and Jaish. But we have had successful operations this year in which around 40 foreign Pakistani terrorists have been neutralised in various operations. Pakistan is still trying to infiltrate more terrorists into the region and some of these attempts have been successful and we are keeping an eye on that too and soon they will be dismantled too, » said J&K DGP Dilbagh Singh.

The DGP also said that since the winter is approaching, there would be more attempts by Pakistan to send across foreign terrorists into the Kashmir Valley. 

« The terrorists from across the border will try to infiltrate before the winter and snowfall. But the counter-infiltration grid has been made stronger and no such attempt would be successful, » said the DGP. 

According to Jammu and Kashmir Police, terror recruitment in the Valley has come down. Police say that they have managed to kill most of the top commanders of the terror outfits and it has led to the terror recruitment taking a hit. 

« The youngsters of the valley are preferring to make their careers in various fields. Stone pelting has completely stopped and local terror recruitment too has dropped to almost zero, » said Singh. 

« IEDs are low cost for terrorists and are in fact part of a new strategy aimed at inflicting maximum damage to forces and less to militants. Consignments airdropped through drones were seized in Jammu, » said DGP.
