New Delhi: Days after India carried out the surgical strike across the LoC to wipe out as many as seven terror launch pads, there have been numerous reports of ceasefire violation by Pakistan across the border.

Terrorists opened fire outside an 30 Rashtriya Rifles Army camp at Langate, Handwara, in Jammu and Kashmir early this morning. Firing has been resumed outside the camp after a 15-minute standoff. No casualties have been reported so far. 

"At around 5 am, terrorists opened firing on an army camp at Langate in Kupwara district, which was retaliated by the alert jawans," an Army official said. "The troops were alert and the attack was foiled," the official said, adding that a search operation was going on.

Camp security has not been breached as combing operations are underway, as per Times Now.

Barely, three days ago an army camp in Baramullah was attacked, where one BSF jawan lost his life. As many as three infiltration bids assisted by Pak posts were foiled on intervening night of October 5-6; two bids in Nowgam sector, one bid in Rampur, Army official has been quoted as saying. Initial reports suggest that two terrorists have been killed in the firing at Army camp.

More details are awaited.
