IAF convoy attack UPSC NOTE

 Attack on IAF convoy

  • Militants attack on an Indian Air Force (IAF) convoy at Surankote in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, left one jawan dead and four injured

  • Top police and intelligence officials, including the Additional Director-General of Police, Jammu, inspected the ambush site. 

  • Official sources said security agencies suspect the use of metal-piercing bullets fired from U.S.-made M4 carbines

  • Sources also said security forces questioned a number of people to gather information on those who provided logistic support to the militants

  • According to preliminary reports, the militants belonged to an infiltrators’ group that had sneaked in recently from the Samba-Kathua belt of Jammu into the Rajouri-Poonch area


  • A worrying aspect for the forces has been how the challenging topography in the Poonch-Rajouri region have left personnel exposed on several occasions.

  • The dense foliage in the area has been a big hindrance for security forces while conducting operations and they have suffered heavy casualties in the region in the past two years.

  • The Poonch-Rajouri area is also where terrorists hiding in a cave atop a hill had killed five Army personnel, including two special forces captains, last year. 

  • Even in that encounter, the forest and the topography had proven to be a challenge.
