On the 26th of November, two security force personnel were killed in a terrorist attack.
The incident was targeted on a quick reaction team (QRT) in an army camp situated on the outskirts of Srinagar.
Vijay Kumar, the Inspector General (IG) of Kashmir said, “Three terrorists started shooting at our Army soldiers. Two jawans were critically injured and reportedly succumbed to injuries. Jaish has active movement here, by evening we’ll identify the group. Terrorists fled in a car and were armed. Two are probably Pakistani and one local.”
As of now, the security forces cordoned off the area and launched a search operation to track down the assailants.
The incident came at a time when Jammu and Kashmir was set to conduct the District Development Council (DDC) elections.
Though the police officials suspect the attackers to be part of Lashkar e Taiba (LeT) and Jaish e Mohammed (JeM,) official identification is yet to be revealed.
This is a developing story. More details are awaited.
