Army on Monday claimed to have foiled a “major threat” by averting two separate drone activities in Ratnuchak- Kaluchak military area in Jammu.

The claim comes a day after two bombs were reportedly dropped inside the Indian Air Force (IAF) Station adjacent to Jammu Airport in Satwari area using the drones, causing minor damage to a hall and lawn besides injuries to two IAF personnel.

“On midnight of 27-28 June 2021, two separate Drone activities (one at 2345 hours and second t 0240 hours) were spotted over Ratnuchak- Kaluchak Military area by alert troops,” Lt Col Devender Anand, PRO (Defence), said in a statement to GNS.

“Immediately, high alert was sounded and Quick Reaction Teams engaged them with firing,” the defence ministry spokesman said, adding, “Both the drones flew away.”

He said a “major threat was thwarted by the alertness and proactive approach of troops.” “The security forces are on high alert and the search operation is in progress,” he added. (GNS)
