Security forces in India’s Pulwama district have dealt a massive blow to one of the most feared terrorists in the world.
Along with five other militants, the deputy chief of Zakir Musa, Soliha, was reportedly killed during an attack.
Zakir Musa is one of the most wanted terrorists in the world today.
He is a former Hizbul Mujahideen terrorist.
Musa also is believed to have links to Jaish-e-Mohammed.
He predominantly operated in the Kashmir Valley.
Local security forces were put on alert earlier this year when Musa was spotted near Amritsar.
Soliha is believed to have been the architect behind many of Musa’s attacks, so authorities believe this will severely hamper his efforts moving forward.
A cordon and search operation had been launched in the South Kashmir District.
The operation got the go-ahead after local intelligence reported the presence of terrorist forces.
As authorities were conducting their search, the terrorist group reportedly opened up fire on them.
During the exchange, a total of six terrorists were killed, including Soliha.
In addition to taking out the six terrorists, a massive cache was found.
A spokesman for the Defense Ministry stated, “Weapons and war-like stores have been recovered.”
So, not only has Musa lost his right hand, but also a significant amount of his supplies to carry out the terrorist attacks.
This is a massive win against the war on terror.
