Shafaqna India: Troops in Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) were on a hunt for gunmen who ambushed an army convoy, resulting in the death toll being raised to five soldiers, as stated by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. Singh expressed deep anguish over the loss and confirmed ongoing “counter-terrorist” operations in response to the attack, which occurred on Monday afternoon in the disputed region.

This incident comes amid a recent increase in attacks in the area. Just a day earlier, two soldiers and six suspected fighters were killed in separate gun battles in villages within the Kulgam district, according to police reports. In June, there was a tragic attack where nine Indian Hindu pilgrims lost their lives and many were injured when a gunman opened fire on their bus in the southern Reasi area. This incident was particularly significant as it marked one of the deadliest attacks in years and the first targeting Hindu pilgrims in Indian-administered Kashmir since 2017, when another ambush on a bus resulted in the deaths of seven people.
