The terrorists opened fire in the wee hours of Thursday morning on an army camp at Langate in Handwara district, which was retaliated by the alert jawans.

The attack comes four days after the Baramulla attack where terrorists tried to break into the 46 Rashtriya Rifles camp. In the three-hour long gun battle, two terrorists and a BSF jawan were killed.
