Terrorists launched a grenade and gunfire attack on Army vehicles conducting a routine patrol on the Machedi-Kindli-Malhar road near Badnota village in Lohai Malhar, approximately 150 km from Kathua town. The incident occurred around 3:30 pm on Monday, resulting in the death of four army personnel and injuries to six others. Security forces retaliated, but the attackers escaped into the nearby forest. Reinforcements have been deployed to apprehend the terrorists, suspected to have recently infiltrated from across the border.
This assault marks the second significant attack in Kathua district within the past month. Earlier, on June 12-13, a gunfight during a search operation resulted in the deaths of two terrorists and a CRPF jawan. On June 26, three foreign terrorists were killed in a gunfight in Doda district. The increase in terrorist activities in Jammu is viewed as an effort by Pakistani handlers to revive terrorism and disrupt peace in the region.
In another incident on June 9, terrorists targeted a bus carrying pilgrims from the Shiv Khori temple in Reasi district, resulting in nine fatalities and 41 injuries.
