Mourn deaths of soldiers in Kupwara attack: Arun Jaitley
Defence Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday mourned the death of three Indian Army soldiers, who were killed in a terrorist attack on an Army camp in Kupwara in Jammu and Kashmir.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the 3 martyred soldiers. Prayers for speedy recovery of the injured. The indomitable courage of our forces in safeguarding the country is exemplary. Salute to martyrs for their supreme sacrifice,” the defence minister tweeted from Moscow where he addressed an international security conference and met top Russian leaders to take the bilateral agenda forward.

The soldiers were killed in a suicide-attack by militants who targeted an Army camp, about 100 km from Srinagar. This is the fourth terror attack on an armed forces establishment within the last two years.

While two terrorists were eliminated, a massive combing operation is going on to ensure no other militant is left in the vicinity. Five injured soldiers were shifted to Army's 92 base hospital for treatment.
