All 3 JeM fidayeen, BSF jawan killed, near Srinagar airport

Sources said that JeM members killed on Tuesday were part of an 11-member "Afzal Guru Squad" of Jaishe-Mohammad, which infiltrated into India in two groups on the intervening night of August 16-17.

The terrorists who were in military fatigues violated four layers of security at the camp, to which Indian soldiers retaliated and shot down one of the attackers. Most people in the Indian-controlled portion favour independence or a merger with Pakistan.

Under cover of darkness, the militants cut a fence to enter the camp in the early hours of Tuesday, he added.

The body of the second terrorist is yet to be retrieved. The three injured security personnel are being treated in hospitals.

Airport officials told the BBC that flight operations are on hold and no employees, passengers or vehicles are being allowed to go towards the airport.

"All the three militants have been killed".
