Militancy in South Kashmir is a persistent problem. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), security forces killed 102 terrorists in the valley in 2019 alone.
MHA added some 286 terrorists are still active in the area.
Recently, the ministry prepared a list of top 10 terrorists after seeking inputs from security forces. The list features terrorists of Hizbul, JeM, and LeT.
On February 14, Pulwama was hit by the worst terror-attack the valley saw in decades. A JeM operative attacked a CRPF convoy on Jammu-Srinagar highway. 40 soldiers were martyred in the suicide bomb blast.
The attack strained Indo-Pak ties and prompted IAF to launch airstrikes.
12 IAF jets bombed JeM's biggest camp in Balakot after Pakistan refused to act on home-grown terrorism.
