The Indian Army on Saturday said that they have killed 13 armed intruders in the past 96 hours, as relentless operations are underway in Kashmir.
According to the Indian Army, the intruders include groups of four and three armed intruders who were tracked and killed in the Machhil and Naugam sectors respectively on Thursday.
“The sinister designs of Pakistan army to push-in multiple groups of armed intruders across the Line of Control (LC) in Jammu and Kashmir continue to be defeated by proactive operations being carried out on the LC,” the Indian Army said in a statement.

Relentless operations mounted by troops have successfully intercepted groups of armed intruders all along the LC in Gurez, Machhil, Naugam and Uri Sectors leading to the elimination of 13 armed intruders in the past 96 hours.
Since then, the operations in Uri and Gurez sectors have further progressed.
Five armed intruders have been killed in Uri so far and one intruder has been killed in the Gurez Sector close to the LC.
“The explosives, inflammable material, arms and ammunition recovered from the armed intruders indicate Pakistan’s designs to orchestrate high profile terror incidents targeting innocent civilian population and security forces during the holy month of Ramzan,” the statement added.
