JK: Four soldiers killed after encounter breaks out in Kathua

Four Army soldiers have been killed and several others injured in a terrorist attack in the Machedi area of Kathua in Jammu and Kashmir. An encounter between troops and terrorists is currently ongoing in the region.

The area falls under the jurisdiction of the 9th Corps of the Indian Army, according to officials. More details about the encounter are awaited as the situation develops.

In related news, six terrorists were recently killed in two separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir. Brigadier Prithviraj Chauhan, Commander of the 1sec RR, stated on Monday that the elimination of terrorists in South Kashmir marks a significant blow to the Hizbul-Mujahideen. He also noted that one Army personnel lost his life during the operation.

The first encounter took place in Modergam village, followed by another in the Frisal Chinnigam area. Jammu and Kashmir has seen a “spike” in terrorist attacks in recent months, with security forces actively engaging in counter-terrorism operations.

In June, three terrorists were neutralized in an encounter with security forces in the Gandoh, Bhaderwah sector of district Doda, as reported by ADGP Anand Jain.
