Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad militants outfit struck at an army camp in Tangdhar in Kashmir on Wednesday, near the Line of Control, triggering a fierce gunfight in which civilian were killed and a soldier was injured.

The militants targeted the camp of 3/1 Gorkha Rifles from the rear at around 6.15 am, firing indiscriminately in which a civilian was killed and a soldier was injured.

The troops reacted swiftly, preventing the attackers from penetrating any deep into the camp even though a few vehicles caught fire after the initial assault by the militants.

The militants tried to sneak into the army camp but they were effectively intercepted by the army’s Quick Reaction Teams which hemmed the terrorists in a cordon, thus preventing their escape.
