It seems like militants are getting more frustrated and aggressive following the surgical strikes by India inside the LoC in Kashmir.
On October 6 morning, some terrorists opened fire at outside a 30 Rashtriya Rifles Army camp at Langate, Handwara, in Jammu and Kashmir.

Terrorists attacked at around 5 am, firing at the army camp for over 20 minutes before fleeing the spot. The second round of firing came as the militants again opened fire at the forces who were conducting the search operation.
The security forces retaliated and killed three terrorists in a heavy gun fight, reports suggest.
The militants had reportedly tried to breach a perimeter fence but were pushed back.
This is the third such attack targeting Army camps in Kashmir, in recent days. Three days ago, militants attacked an army camp in Baramullah where one BSF soldier lost his life.
Meanwhile, Army also foiled three infiltration bids assisted by Pakistani posts along the Line of Control (LoC). While two infiltration bids were in Naugam sector, one such attempt was foiled in Rampur sector.
“The infiltration attempts were assisted by Pakistani posts,” an Army official said.
