RAWALPINDI: The search and rescue operation for 139 soldiers and civilians buried underneath an avalanche in the Gayari sector of Siachen has entered its eleventh day.
According to an ISPR press release, Swiss and German teams have returned to their countries and their reports validate sites identified earlier by the Pakistan army.
Meanwhile Norway and US Teams are at Gayari to assist the ongoing rescue operations. The search and rescue operation at Gayari continues round the clock at full pace. The rise in temperature has increased the chances of slides, however necessary safety precautions are being taken to ward off danger.
The tunnel at site 1 has been widened slightly; however, the work on the tunnel is hampered due to presence of toxic gases. The work on other sites identified by experts is in progress at full pace using all available resources.
