As Jang-e-Badra falls on August 2, fidayeen may conduct hit and run attack:
The development came in view of forthcoming jang-e-badar on 2nd August, as there is a very high possibility of fidayeen and hit and run attack during these three days.
The officials said it is rare for such a large number of militants to infiltrate in one go and indicated the desperation of their handlers across the LoC to keep the Kashmir pot boiling.
More details awaited.
