On Thursday, a terrorist strike in the Poonch area of Jammu and Kashmir claimed the lives of five members of the Army. Terrorists opened fire on their car as it travelled between Bhimber Gali and Poonch.

 

Terrorists used to rain and bad visibility to attack an Army vehicle today around 1500 local time as it travelled between Bhimber Gali and Poonch in the Rajauri sector. Terrorists “likely used grenades,” the Army claimed in a statement, explaining why the truck had taken fire.

After the tragedy, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh expressed his sadness. “Devastated by the news of the deaths of Indian Army service men in a truck fire in Poonch District, Jammu and Kashmir. The victims’ families are in my prayers at this time,” he tweeted.
