Earlier, terrorists carried out a suicide attack on an army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district on Thursday in which four jawans were martyred. Two terrorists were also killed in retaliation by the security forces.

This attack is being told a sign of the return of fidayeen (suicide attackers) in Jammu and Kashmir after a gap of almost three years. Police said that both the terrorists are believed to be affiliated to Pakistan-based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). Police said the terrorists were armed with deadly steel core bullets and both the terrorists were killed in an encounter that lasted for more than four hours.The encounter ended at around 6.30 am. The attack took place on Monday, four days before the country’s Independence Day.

Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Dilbag Singh told media that both the fidayeens who carried out the attack on Thursday were probably from the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed. According to the DGP, both tried to enter the camp, but were killed. “Three army personnel were martyred in the firing,” he said.

Earlier, Army Public Relations Officer (PRO) in Jammu Lt Col Devendra Anand said, “In the early hours of Thursday, alert sentries posted at the Army post at Pargal in Rajouri district saw suspicious persons taking advantage of the bad weather and approaching the post. ” He said the sentries challenged the two terrorists who hurled grenades while trying to enter the post. However, alert troops surrounded the area. Anand said that two terrorists were killed in the firing and six soldiers of the Indian Army were injured in this operation, out of which four soldiers were later martyred.
