New Delhi: The Army was taken into confidence and its concerns were addressed before arriving at a decision that the forces will not launch any operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramadhan, government sources said.
Sources, however, said that “limited operations” based on specific intelligence will continue.
“Army has been given the right to retaliate to any attack,” a source said.
The Home Ministry said the forces reserve the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people.
During this period, road opening and sanitisation of routes will continue.
