After the surgical strikes by India on September 28, in PoK, Pakistan establishment as well as terrorist organisations Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and others have vowed to avenge the killing of terrorists by Indian army. According to sources, at least 250 terrorists are active in the valley to unleash the reign of terror in valley and other parts of the country.
Intelligence agencies have given inputs to government that most of these 250 terrorists belonging to Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Mohammed and Hizbul Mujahideen, had infiltrated before the surgical strikes and were hiding inside valley. The government has asked the security forces to remain on high alert.
Sources also informed that though the vigil along the LoC as well as the international border was intensified, there were gaps in many places due to the difficult topography which paves way for possible infiltration.
It is also believed that some 100 terrorists are waiting across the border to infiltrate, as was first reported by TOI last week. Security forces, however, have killed more than 40 terrorists in the last one month while they were trying to infiltrate or attack the bases of Army and other security forces.
Despite the alertness of the security forces, terrorists have attacked three army camps in Baramulla, Pampore and Handwara post the Uri attack on September 18 which invoked the surgical strikes a week later. According to sources, LeT suffered maximum damage in the cross-LoC surgical strikes carried out by the Army with radio intercepts indicating that around 20 of its militants were killed.
The intercepts revealed that LeT suffered maximum damage at Dudniyal launch pad in PoK, opposite Kupwara sector of north Kashmir, sources said.
