Indian security forces killed a suspected militant during clashes in the Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday, June 20. A number of militants reportedly opened fire on security forces as they were conducting a search operation in the Likhdi Pora area following intelligence regarding a militant presence in the area. Clashes are ongoing.
Further engagements between security forces and militants in Kulgam district and across Jammu and Kashmir are expected in the near term.
Individuals in Jammu and Kashmir are advised to monitor developments, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments.
Some foreign governments advise their citizens against travel to parts of Kashmir, notably including areas along the Line of Control (LoC), due to the significant risk of violence.
