Militants attacked a patrol party in Kupwara district of India‘s northern Jammu and Kashmir state on Friday (June 08).

The militants launched the attack at a patrol party of Indian Army in Haril area of the district, however according to local media reports, no injuries or casualties have been reported so far.

Indian Interior Minister Rajnath Singh is on a two-day trip to the state to review the impact of halting search and cordon operations during Islamic holy month of Ramadan. In May, Singh had ordered security forces to halt cordon and search operations across Kashmir during Ramadan. However, security forces still reserved the right to retaliate in case of direct confrontation or an attack.

India accuses Pakistan of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the Line of Control that divides the Kashmir region. Pakistan denies the allegations. The South Asian neighbours have fought two of their three wars since independence in 1947 over Muslim-majority Kashmir, which they both claim in full but rule in part.
