Police and terrorists are still fighting in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district. The fighting started again on Thursday morning, making it the second day in a row. During an incident on Wednesday, up to four Army soldiers were killed and two badly hurt.
Police say that new firing started this morning in the Bajimaal area of the Dharmsal belt after a break over the night. Overnight, the area was blocked off, and more security staff were sent in to make sure that terrorists involved in the encounter could not get away. The area has a lot of trees.
The difficult terrain of the Reasi-Rajouri-Poonch region and the lack of road connections are making it hard to carry out the operation. “Isolated dhoks (huts made of mud) in villages nestled in the mountains make the civilian population, particularly women and children, vulnerable to terrorists” , a policeman said.
