Jammu attack: Two army officers killed, six injured

It is believed to be a fidayeen attack by Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, the first such attack in Jammu this year, police said.

- Intelligence sources have confirmed the attackers were members of Pakistan-based terror outfit JeM, led by UN-designated terrorist Masood Azhar. "My heart goes out to the injured and their families", read her tweet.

Lt. Col. Devender Anand, the Jammu-based spokesman of the army, told media outside that camp's main gate that the terrorists had entered the camp after an exchange of fire with a sentry near the family quarters at the rear.

Suspecting they could be terrorists, the soldiers challenged them.

Terming the incident as "sad", he has said that "stay assured".

Mr Surjewala also recalled how PM Modi, as the then chief minister of Gujarat, had hit out at the UPA government even as anti-terror operations were underway during the 2008 Mumbai attacks. One must hope that peace is restored in the region and those who carried out the attacks are brought to trial. For money, some people have given them space to stay.

Unidentified gunmen stormed an Indian army camp early on Saturday in Indian Occupied Kashmir, killing two army officers and wounding six others, an army spokesman said.

Though the exact number of terrorists was not known, officials said preliminary estimates had suggested that the group comprised three to four of them.

Moreover, the Campose report had also proposed an external audit of security of camps and installations, which has not been accepted by the three services. Following the attack, the area surrounding the camp has been shut. "Investigations must be done".

"The attack has now been contained".

Two army personnel also lost their lives in the attack and four others were injured, including the daughter of a jawan, who was killed.

The terrorists entered the Sunjuwan Military Station at around 4.45 am on Saturday hurling grenades and using heavy volume of automatic gunfire to attack the Army camp. "The operation is in progress and extreme caution and restraint are being exercised to safeguard unarmed soldiers, women and children in the camp", the officer said.
