Handwara (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], Oct.6 (ANI): Two terrorists were killed in Jammu and Kashmir's Handwara district on Thursday morning after they opened fire outside the 30 Rashtriya Rifles camp at Langate. The terrorists, who were in army combat uniform, had opened fire at around 5 a.m.

During the search operation in the area, the militants opened fire at the forces. The firing continued for 10 to 15 minutes. Since the troops were alert, the attack was aptly retaliated by the security forces. The operation is currently underway.

Meanwhile, additional forces have been rushed to the spot to nab the remaining terrorists.

No casualties have been reported, so far. Meanwhile, it is reported that the army foiled three infiltration bids along the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir last night. Two infiltration bids were foiled in Naugam Sector while one such attempt was foiled in Rampur sector.

The attack comes days after terrorists attacked a BSF and adjoining camps in Baramulla district, where one Bolder Security Force (BSF) soldier was killed in the attack.

The attack also comes after the Indian Army conducted surgical strikes and destroyed seven terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC), last week.

Last month, terrorists had attacked the army brigade headquarters at Uri, killing 19 soldiers. (ANI)
