The army's operation against the 30-40 infiltrators in Keran sector has entered the 11th day on Friday.

The army has claimed to kill 15 of these surrounded militants but so far no bodies have been recovered.

Defence sources also told IANS that for the last 24 hours, the probing fire by the army has not been returned by the militants in the area where the army is proceeding very cautiously to clear the cordoned area.
