A group of Pakistan-backed terrorists attacked an army post at Tangdhar near Line of Control (LoC) in the wee hours of Wednesday.
The incident took place in the Kupawar district of J&K, which prompted the armed forces to retaliate in equal measures. The number of terrorists involved in the attack is still unclear, however, a massive combing and search operation has also begun.
Separately, the Army today busted a major terror hideout and recovered several improvised explosive devices (IED) and ammunition from Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir.
The joint operation was conducted yesterday evening by the Rashtriya Rifles battalion, Territorial Army and the Jammu and Kashmir police.
Meanwhile, the Army has also been engaged in a search operation to flush out hiding terrorists from the Rajwar forests in Handwara and so far three security personnel have been injured, including a Lieutenant-Colonel and two jawans.
