Pakistan’s eye on the tail
Poonch has been the center of terrorist activities almost a decade and a half ago, but since then the strictness of the security forces broke the back of the terrorist network. In recent times, Pakistan has again stepped up efforts to increase terrorist activities in Poonch. In 2016, a grenade attack was carried out on Shri Budha Amarnath Yatra. 15 devotees were injured in this. On December 13, two militants were killed by security forces in Poshna, Poonch.
