He said many fidayeen attacks have taken place in Valley during which damage was caused.

Three terrorists were killed in an encounter on Tuesday following the attack on the BSF camp at Srinagar near the International Airport.

The militants had stormed the BSF camp at 4am and the gunbattle continued till well after noon, as one militant was holed up inside the camp of the BSF's 182 battalion, which is tasked with guarding the airport.

"It seems that the group had also done recce not only of Srinagar airport but also of Awantipora".

"When they can strike near an air force base, they can strike anywhere", said Imran Ahmad Mir, a university student in the Humhama neighborhood. He told reporters the group was a threat "because they believe in surprise suicide attacks". Eleven people including 04 CRPF personnel, 04 Police men and three fidayeen militants were killed in the 18 hour Police Lines Operation.

Another day, another chapter in the ongoing escalation of tensions between the United States and North Korea. About 28,500 US servicemembers are based in the South.

Kashmir rebels have battled Indian forces for decades, demanding either independence or a merger with Pakistan. "They were challenged and were neutralised", added Sharma.

The CRPF, Jammu and Kashmir Police and Army's 53 Rashtriya Rifles unit were rushed towards the spot but Army sources confirmed that the BSF eliminated the threat without help.

Inspector General of Police, Kashmir Range, Munir Khan said they continued to look for six to seven terrorists and that they needed to "neutralise them very fast".

While one terrorist was killed by a BSF sentry at the gate, the other two entered the camp firing indiscriminately at the forces. Reports state that an exchange of fire was going on between the terrorists and security forces when the incident occurred.

"The flights are continuing and one flight has just landed in the airport from Delhi", Khan said.

Is political deadlock in Kashmir a reason behind the rise in the daredevil militant attacks on government forces installations?
