Camp near Srinagar Airport attacked

Suicide attack on BSF camp at Srinagar

The base in which the gun battle took place shares a common compound wall with the airport.

Border Security Force (BSF) chief KK Sharma on Wednesday, a day after the paramilitary force's camp was infiltrated near the Srinagar airport, said, "The fidayeens are determined, we can't stop their attacks". In August, at least eight Indian police officials were killed when militants attacked a security camp in southern Kashmir. The troops of the camp are entrusted with the security of airport tarmac in the capital city.

Residents in the neighbourhood said they heard dozens of blasts and intermittent gunfire was still ongoing. "No doubt JeM is a threat, because it believes in carrying out surprise fidayeen attacks on security installations".

A police official said that the three BSF jawans and a policeman injured in the attack have been shifted to a hospital where an injured BSF ASI succumbed to his injuries. All these things will keep happening, as long as Pakistan is our neighbour. On September 28, four Pakistani Laskhar-e-Taiba terrorists had barged into the home of 23-year-old BSF officer Mohammad Ramzan Parray+ at Bandipora's Hajin area and killed the jawan, while injuring three of his family members.

It was assumed that Pakistan was content with Burhan-type low-intensity indigenous armed rebellion in Kashmir.

It worked four times . "So we'll find out this week what we're made of", Kingsbury said. "Defensively, we played terrific". Devin Harper blocked the punt by Dominic Panazzolo, with the ball going out of bounds at the Tech 9-yard line .

The last time NSG led an operation was during the Pathankot terror attack in 2016 when terrorists had entered an Air Force station.

Sharma said, "this timely detection" prevented a major catastrophe.

Although the violence appears to be waning, the latest attack has caused alarm across India's security agencies, says BBC Urdu's Riyaz Masroor.

"All the three militants have been killed. It could have ended quickly using aerial weapons, but due to the presence of civilians it was avoided", Inspector General of Police Kashmir Munir Ahmed Khan told reporters during a presser adding that the attack was conducted by JeM militants.

"The local cadres of militants in Kashmir have been eliminated by security forces".
