Srinagar: Three militants have been neutralised by security forces as the operation is underway to take out the assailants who infiltrated and attacked an Army camp in Tangdhar near the Line of Control (LoC) in Kupwara district, Jammu and Kashmir.
A civilian has been injured and an Army personnel has been killed in the terror attack so far.
The Jammu and Kashmir Police have hinted that the attack could be a 'Fidayeen' strike.
"We got to know in the morning that some blasts were heard near a local army unit. Some fire shots were also heard. We have launched an operation and reports say that some militants are inside the camp. It looks like a Fidayeen attack and our assessment is that more than three people are involved. So far, one jawan has been injured," SSP Kupwara Ajaz Ahmed told ANI.
At around 7:40 am today, three to four terrorists positioned themselves at a mountainous ridge near the camp located near the LoC. The terrorists also threw grenades.
Heavy exchange of fire is underway as the army has launched a counter-terror operation against the militants.
