Security forces killed at least two militants in Kulgam district (Jammu and Kashmir territory) on Monday, May 25. The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and the Jammu and Kashmir Police (JKP) conducted a joint cordon and search operation in the Manzgam area on Monday morning (local time), after receiving intelligence on the presence of militants in the area. Local mobile internet and voice calling services have been suspended during the operation.
Further engagements between security forces and militants in Kulgama district and across Jammu and Kashmir territory are expected over the near term.
Individuals in Jammu and Kashmir territory 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.
