 February 11, 2018: The army on Sunday successfully neutralized one more terrorist as the ongoing operation at Sunjwan Army Camp in Jammu and Kashmir entered the second day. 

Earlier on Saturday, the army killed three militants of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). 

So far, five army personnel and one civilian lost their lives in the attack and 11 others injured, including the daughter of a jawan, who was killed. 

According to police sources, most of the fallen soldiers were from Kashmir’s Kupwara district. Parliamentary affairs ministers Abdul Rehman Veeri informed the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly that Subedar Madanlal Choudhary and Subedar Mohammed Ashraf Mir were killed in the attack by a group of militants. 

The attack came a day after the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, who was hanged in Delhi’s Tihar Jail. This is also the second attack on the Sunjwan Military station in 15 years.

In 2003, terrorists had barged into its premises and killed nearly a dozen soldiers. The death anniversary of JKLF leader Maqbool Bhat, who too was also hanged in Tihar jail, falls on Sunday and separatist Hurriyat Conference has called for a bandh on that day as well.

Following the Saturday's attack, the district administration has asked the schools within 500 meters of the camp to remain shut.
