Four people including BSF Assistant Sub-Inspector B.S. Yadav and three JeM militants were killed and three BSF troopers injured in the operation against the militants after they entered the 182 Battalion camp of the BSF near Srinagar global airport at 4.30 a.m.

The pre-dawn strike breached multiple layers of security at the BSF's 182 Battalion.

Sources said the mercenaries stormed the BSF camp from Gogo village and carried out several blasts inside the camp before being detected by troopers.

Terrorists attacked the camp in the wee hours of Tuesday.

"So long our friendly neighbour (Pakistan) does not behave, I think we can expect many more attacks", Sharma said. Assistant Sub-Inspector Brij Kishore Yadav, 50, was killed and four security personnel were injured in the attack. "It was a good operation that they have conducted", he told reporters.

In his presser after the attack, Inspector General of Police, Muneer Ahmad Khan, said the airport is "well-guarded and favourable to be used". "In comparison, BSF tackled the fidayeen attack professionally without sustaining much damage". Following the attack, all the morning flights were cancelled, and airports were sealed till security clearance.

Undeterred, the two surviving militants launched a fresh attack, firing at the BSF camp. These attacks will continue till there is militancy in Kashmir. At least 19 Army personnel were killed.

Singh said that the militants were just frustrated because of successful operations carried out by the security forces. Is there an urgent need for initiating a dialogue to end violence from all sides?
