“Within the period in focus, the troops of Operation Hadin Kai conducted a series of land and air operations across the North East theatre that yielded commendable results.

“The sustained synergy in the land and air operational efforts have continued to degrade the operational capabilities of the terrorist elements, limit their freedom of action and drive scores of them into surrendering.
