Indian security forces clashed with suspected militants in the Zadibal area of Srinagar (Jammu and Kashmir) on Sunday, June 21. The suspects reportedly fired on security forces conducting a search operation in the area, triggering an exchange of fire. Reports suggest that at least one militant has been killed in the encounter; however, clashes are ongoing. Mobile internet services are reported to have been suspended in Srinagar.
Further security operations in Srinagar 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.
