An Army oil depot has caught fire in the attack in Tangdhar sector in Jammu and Kashmir
Three terrorists who attacked an army base in Jammu and Kashmir's Tangdhar this morning have been killed after a seven-hour gunbattle. A civilian was also killed in the firing.
At around 6:15 am, three to four terrorists attacked from the back of the battalion headquarters in Tangdhar - located about 150 km from state capital Srinagar - using small firearms and grenade launchers. A soldier was injured in the intense firing; some vehicles and barracks were also damaged.
The terrorists positioned themselves at a mountainous ridge near the camp, which is located near the Line of Control.
There are about 80 soldiers in the base.
About 100 kilometres away in Manigah in Kupwara, anti-terror operations have been on for about two weeks. Last week, 38-year-old Army Colonel Santosh Mahadik was killed in an encounter with terrorists in the region.
