Army kills two terrorists in Kashmir

 Two terrorists were killed and an army soldier was injured when the troops engaged a group of infiltrators who sneaked into Jammu and Kashmir early on Thursday, officials said.

 
Incident took place near the Line of Control (LoC) in the northern district of Kupwara.
 
"When noticed by army, the group started firing at the soldiers, which triggered a gun battle in which two terrorists were killed and a soldier was injured," an official said.
 
"The operation is still on but the infiltration attempt by the terrorists has been foiled," he added.
 
On Wednesday, a solider succumbed to his injuries and a terrorist was shot dead by the army in a gun battle after militants infiltrated into the Kupwara district, near Macchil sector.
 
Five soldiers were also reportedly injured in that operation.
