Suspected militants fired on security forces in the Gongoo area of Pulwama district (Jammu and Kashmir territory) on Monday, October 19. Officials have stated that at least one police officer was injured in the attack. Security forces have cordoned off the area and are searching for the attackers.
Further security operations and clashes between militants and security forces are likely to occur across Jammu and Kashmir territory in the medium term.
Those 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.
