Infiltration bid foiled: 2 terrorists killed in J&K

Two Militants Killed in J&K as Army Foils Infiltration Bid

The Army on Saturday morning said it killed two unidentified infiltrators along the Line of control (LoC) in Machil sector of Kupwara. "The militants fired back and the encounter continued for some time during which two militants were killed", they said.

Weapons have been recovered from the slain terrorists, whose identity and affiliation is being ascertained, the spokesman said.

The latest development came just hours after Pakistan violated the ceasefire in Arnia sector, killing livestock and damaging several properties.


Meanwhile, Pakistani troops targeted Indian border outposts and hamlets along the International Border (IB) in Jammu district in overnight firing and shelling, a senior BSF officer said. Earlier in August, the Army killed 5 intruders+ who were attempting to infiltrate from Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) into Machhil sector.

Army has foiled about 13 infiltration bids in different sectors in north Kashmir this year so far.
