Five Army personnel were killed and six injured after terrorists attacked a military convoy in the remote Machedi area of Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua district on Monday afternoon. The Army vehicles were on a routine patrol on the Machedi-Kindli-Malhar road when attacked about 150 km from Kathua.

The injured have been shifted to a hospital for treatment.

After the initial attack – terrorists threw a grenade and then opened fire – the security forces retaliated but the terrorists fled into the nearby forest, officials said.

Reinforcements were rushed in and a search op has been launched to track down the terrorists.

Officials said there is intermittent firing going on between the terrorists and the security forces.
