Terrorists belonging to the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) attacked the family quarters of an Indian military camp in Sunjuwan (Pictured – Photo Credit: PTI) in Jammu in the wee hours of Saturday killing five soldiers and a civilian and injuring at least another 11, including women and children, the army said. Four of the terrorists were gunned down while two more are still holed up inside the camp. Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat visited the spot to discuss the ongoing anti-terror military operations against JeM militants and returned to New Delhi after taking aerial survey of the operations. Four army tanks were moved into the camp late Saturday evening possibly for the final assault on the building where the attackers are holed up. Army recovered AK56 assault rifles, large amount of ammunition and hand grenades from the slain terrorists. Other material seized from them confirmed they belonged to JeM. Unarmed soldiers, women and children living in the 150 houses in the military complex have been moved to safety. Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) was on high alert as Saturday was the anniversary of the hanging of Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri separatist who played a key role in the attack on Parliament in 2001.
