Four killed in fierce Kashmir gun battle

According to reports, this is the first time Indian Air Force commandos have been killed in an encounter in Kashmir. Both the Air Force personnel were GARUD Commandos who were operating with the Army for operational experience and training.

"Live situational training" involves "on the job" training with the Garuds learning to combat militants in a real-life scenario, a concept that germinated in the aftermath of the Pathankot airbase attack in January 2016, after four heavily-armed Pakistan-trained terrorists infiltrated into the high-security airbase that is home to high-value IAF assets.

As per the recent reports, two army soldiers and two militants were allegedly killed in a gunfight near Jammu and Kashmir's Bandipora district on Wednesday.
