"Well done, security forces. Abu Ismail, the terrorist involved in attack on Amaranth Yatra, is shot dead. NO mercy for terrorists!," he said in a tweet.
Ismail was the mastermind of the July 10 attack on a bus carrying Amarnath yatra pilgrims in south Kashmir's Anantnag district that left eight dead.
