A grenade attack carried out by militants targeting an army convoy on Monday, August 31, left at least six civilians injured in Baramulla district (Jammu and Kashmir territory). According to local officials, the militants missed their target and the grenade detonated on the roadside causing civilian injuries. All six civilians were taken to a local hospital.
A heightened security presence is to be anticipated in the vicinity of the incident, along with disruptions to overland travel. Similar attacks are to be expected in Jammu and Kashmir territory over the near term.
Those 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.
