Ramadan Death Count: India, 16/06/17

(Kashmir) A joint cordon-and-search operation by the Indian army cornered Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Junaid Matto and friend in the Arwani area of Jammu and Kashmir’s southern Anantnag district. In the shootout that followed, both were killed. As this is a Muslim area, the locals decided to protest the killing of an armed terrorist and attacked the troops surrounding the house the terrorists had holed up in. Which is why they shot one dead. Also in the area, 2 policemen and a women were shot dead by terrorists Thursday evening.

(Kashmir) Pakistan on Friday violated the ceasefire by firing on forward posts along the Line of Control in Rajouri district of Jammu and Kashmir, killing an Indian Army jawan (soldier).
