May JohnsonОкт 04, 2017

Two children were killed Monday during an exchange of gunfire between Indian and Pakistani troops, Indian authorities said.

Two BSF jawans and a policeman were also injured in the attack, the officials said. The attack assumes significance as it happened near the old airfield, which is manned by the Indian Air Force.

He said that: "JeM is a threat because the cadres believe in such kind of activities, like attacking the camps".

Security personnel sealed all possible escape routes as Army commandos, the BSF, the Central Reserve Police Force and police launched a joint operation to flush out all the attackers.

Airport officials confirmed that around 9.30 am, they allowed passengers to enter the airport amid increased checks to resume flights. While civil airport is secured by CRPF, the technical area and outer periphery area of airport is maintained by BSF and Air Force.

Airport operations were suspended in the morning but later resumed as security forces managed to limit the action around the building where the militants are holed up.

A group of militants had stormed the BSF camp located just outside the main gate of the high-security Srinagar International Airport at 4.00 am. When asked if JeM was behind the attack, Khan said, "Such type of attacks have been carried out by this group only".

In August, militants attacked a police base in the southern Kashmir town of Pulwama, killing eight security personnel. "Firing is ongoing", BSF officers said.

Sources said that security agencies were ascertaining as to how the armed fidayeen breached multiple layer security to sneak into the camp close to Srinagar Airport, which is a highly fortified zone.

Militants have targeted police camps in Kashmir in recent months.

"I have spoken to the DG, CRPF, and DG, BSF".
