Militants attacked an army convoy in north Kashmir’s Handwara in Kupwara district on Wednesday morning.

According to reports, three soldiers have been injured in the ambush. Details are still sketchy about the number of militants who attacked the convoy or whether there were any casualties among the attackers.

Police said that the convoy was heading for Baramulla when it was attacked by militants at Wudpora area. “The details are pouring in. Police officials have rushed to the spot,” the police control room Handwara said.

On August 17, two army personnel and a policeman were killed when militants attacked a security convoy on the national highway in Baramulla.
