SIACHEN: As military personnel and volunteers work round the clock on the extensive rescue operation at the Gayari Sector in Siachen, a total of 1.73 million cubic feet area has been shifted since the avalanche engulfed the Battalion Headquarters.

According to an update issued by the Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR), despite cold weather hindering the operation, frequently causing equipment to breakdown, all efforts were being made to extract the trapped soldiers and civilians.

The platforms, constructed on all sites, have been consolidated, however excavation work is being focused on expansion of the sites. The Ground-penetrating radar teams have identified two more points.

Meanwhile the Norwegian team, after providing necessary assistance has arrived in Islamabad and will be departing for Norway on Tuesday.
