Thanks to an alert sentry at the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp in Srinagar's Karan Nagar, another attack by terrorists has been foiled. The alert sentry observed some men approaching the camp suspiciously and fired on them. The men ran back in a hail of gunfire and operations are on to nab them.

Operations lasted four days

More than 48 hours have elapsed since Islamic Jihadists attacked the Army camp at Sunjuwan, jammu, the picture is still not clear. There are conflicting reports about the actual number of casualties and the number of terrorists.

According to a news report by ‘The Indian Express’ — 10 soldiers including two JCO’s and Jawans and a civilian have died in the terror attack. The audacity and the professionalism carry all the indication that it has been the handiwork of Jaish-e Mohammad.The attack has been the worst since the Uri attack.

The operation has moved into the fourth day with two terrorists being killed yesterday and one in the morning. An Army spokesman has clarified that the operation will continue till all the terrorists have been killed.

Intermittent firing has been heard all night hinting that there could be more terrorists hiding in the sprawling Army camps which also has residential quarters.

The terrorists succeeded to infiltrate the campsite from a rear entry after a short interchange of shots with the sentries. The terrorists were dressed in Army outfits and were said to be carrying a huge quantity of ammunition and weapons.

Pregnant woman rescued, delivers baby safely

The operations have been hampered by the presence of women and children in the camp, and so far one JCO and six people have been injured in the ongoing operations.

Among the civilians was a pregnant lady who gave birth to a child soon after being rescued. QRT teams have managed to isolate the terrorists, and the flushing out process is continuing.

Jaish, the new enemy

It is a dangerous new development as the security apparatus of the state take guard against a formidable adversary in the form of Jaish-e-Mohammed, an organization led by Masood Azhar. Masood was one of the terrorists who was released in exchange of passengers in the Air India Kandahar hijack.
