The Defence Public Relations Officer (PRO) in Srinagar said that a security operation was started based on information from the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in Kupwara. The SSP said that one of the terrorist launch pads was likely coming from across the Line of Control (LOC) towards Machhal sector.
