Terrorists open fire on army camp in J&K’s Rajouri, soldier injured | India News

NEW DELHI: An Army personnel sustained injuries during an early morning attack by terrorists on a territorial army sentry post in Galuthi village, located in the Manjakote area of Rajouri district, Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday.
The incident occurred around 4 am when terrorists targeted a sentry post of the territorial army. The troops at the post retaliated, leading to an exchange of fire that lasted nearly 30 minutes.
“The soldier was injured in the exchange of fire that continued for nearly half-an-hour between the two sides but the terrorists managed to flee into the nearby forest,” officials said as quoted by PTI.
Following the attack, security forces initiated an extensive search operation in an effort to apprehend the terrorists who had escaped into the surrounding forest area.
This comes a day after, four terrorists were killed in two separate encounters in the Kulgam district of south Kashmir on Saturday. Two soldiers succumbed to their injuries sustained from gunshot wounds during the encounter.
The two operations are still under way, as it is suspected that some more terrorists may be present at both locations
