As far Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan is concerned, the Army chief told reporters that the Indian armed forces have had a lot of successes while stating that in the last 10-15 days alone more than 15 terrorists have been killed.

“All of this has been because of very close cooperation and coordination between all security forces operating in Jammu and Kashmir,” General Naravane said.

“Most of the operations have been based on information provided by the locals themselves, which goes to show that they are also absolutely fed up with militancy and terrorism and they want that the situation should return to normal,” he added.
