Srinagar/UNI: Two militants were killed as security forces foiled an infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Machil sector of Kupwara district in Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday.

This is the second infiltration bid that has been foiled in Kashmir in the last five days.

On October 22, two infiltrators were killed in the Uri sector of Baramulla.

Police said the operation in Machil Kupwara was launched on their specific input and it is still underway.

"Based on specific information provided by Kupwara Police, an #encounter has started in the Machhal sector in which two #terrorists have been killed so far. Operation underway. Further details shall follow," Kashmir Police said in a post on X.

Earlier Army’s Srinagar based Chinar Corps in a post on X said an infiltration bid was foiled at Kupwara.

"In a Joint Operation launched by #IndianArmy, @JmuKmrPolice & Intelligence agencies on 26 Oct 23, an infiltration bid has been foiled by alert troops along the #LoC in #Kupwara sector. Operations in progress," Army said.

The bid in Kupwara was foiled, a day after a high level multi-agency joint security review meeting discussed nuances of security in the region in relation to the onset of the winter season.

Prior to the onset of winter when snow closes the high mountain passes , there have always been efforts from Pakistan to push militants from across.
