On Monday morning, the army sent its assault dog named Zoom inside the house where the militants were holed up, “Zoom is a highly trained, ferocious, and committed canine. Has been trained to locate and bring down terrorists,” officials said, adding that Zoom has been part of many active operations in south Kashmir. The Indian Army also shared a video of Zoom, the “brave dog”, who has been trained to locate and bring down terrorists.

It has been part of many active operations in south Kashmir, they said. Zoom, as usual, was tasked to clear the house where terrorists were hiding, they added. However, during the operation, the canine received two gunshots and was critically injured, the officials said. “Zoom identified and attacked the terrorists during which the canine received two gunshots,” they added. Zoom was rushed to the Army’s Vet Hospital here where the canine is currently under treatment, the officials said.

In July this year, ‘Axel’, another Army assault canine dog lost his life in a counter-terrorist operation in the Kashmir valley and was posthumously awarded ‘Mention-in Despatches’ for Gallantry in Operation ‘Rakshak’ on Independence Day.

Two Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were killed in the encounter, while as many soldiers were also injured.

After undergoing surgery for the massive injuries, the brave army dog passed away on Thursday.
