Two militants were killed and four forces personnel injured in an ongoing attack at a Border Security Force (BSF) camp near the Srinagar airport on Tuesday, police said.

The attack at the 182 battalion camp in Humhama took place at 4.30 a.m.

“Three BSF men and a policeman were injured. Firing is ongoing,” according to BSF officials.

As the militants entered the camp’s administrative block, they were surrounded by the forces, according to the police.

“It was a suicide attack. Two militants have been killed while an operation against other holed-up militants inside the camp is ongoing,” police sources said.

Top state police, BSF and Central Reserve Police Force officials have reached the gunfight site.

Meanwhile flights to and fro Srinagar Airport have resumed.

All morning flights from the airport were cancelled earlier today.
