New Delhi: With intelligence agencies warning terrorist attacks on military installations in Jammu and Kashmir, Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor on Tuesday said security forces are "capable and confident" of taking on such threats.

"Any infiltration or militants trying to target security forces, I think we are very capable and confident of taking on any such attacks," Kapoor said when asked about warnings of terror attacks on army installations in Jammu and Kashmir.

On reports of change of tactics by militants in carrying out attacks on military targets, he said, "We are aware of change in tactics but we have also refined our procedures to respond to such tactics."

After last Saturday's attacks on security forces in central Srinagar killing a personnel and injuring two others, intelligence agencies had warned that terrorists could carry out more attacks on security agencies in the state.
