    South Kashmir has seen a spate of attacks on banks, especially in southern districts of Shopian and Pulwama.


    Security forces on Thursday launched a massive anti-militancy operation in south Kashmir's Shopian district following reports of movement of militants in villages.

    A contingent of around 3,000 security personnel from the the Army, CRPF and the police cordoned off Shopian and nearby Pulwama villages.

    Locals said security forces conducted house-to-house searches in over dozen villages, including Heaf, Sugan, Chilipora and Malnad.

    Around 20 villages are believed to be under the search operation.

    Shopian, around 60 km south of Srinagar, has witnessed a spurt in militancy.

    Several banks were looted and five guards disarmed by militants on Tuesday. Five policemen were also killed on Monday

    Till last reports came in, no militant was arrested. However, security forces had to chase away stone-throwing local youth in the morning. Tear-smoke shells were used to enter the villages.

    Recently released videos, comprising 57 militants, according to the police, were shot in the same area where the operation has been launched. These videos released on the social media showed armed and unmasked militants openly posing for an photo-op

    Jihadi telecommunication interception reveals, close to 40-50 terrorists have been trapped. They are trying to get public out to protest (stone pelters). Indian army is not in mood today to back off. It's going to be a very bloody operation.

    I just came to know that this is just the start of something big on LOC.

    They are ensuring once operations on LOC start terrorists who are hiding inside should not be there to create trouble. So army is cleaning up terrorists beforehand.

    This is a 'flushing' operation. Pincering is on.

    Also, expect some action across LC this time. That is what the pointers indicate.

    Can anyone confirm arrival of Heron TP?
