that was the drone attack
A two-storey building of the Indian Air Force’s Satwari project was hit by a drone carrying six kilograms of explosives in the early hours of Sunday. Two people were injured in the attack and the roof of a building blew up. Explosives were dropped with the help of drones. It may be that some chemicals including RDX have been mixed in it but this has not been confirmed. The planes dropped explosives at night and took off from across the border. The international border is 14 km from the Jammu airport. The Indian Air Force had given two drones near the base at Jammu airport on Monday after the attack. The Indian Army opened fire on him, so he retreated.
Emergency meeting held on Tuesday
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday held an emergency meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in the wake of the drone attack on an Air Force base in Jammu on Sunday. A person familiar with the developments said the meeting focused on formulating a comprehensive strategy to deal with threats to the country’s security and future challenges. The government will soon collectively prepare a strategy to deal with the emerging challenges and work is going on to prepare this strategy through various ministries and departments. The Ministry of Defense and the three armies will play an important role in this. Now that the drone strikes are taking place, the three forces have been asked to focus on tackling these new challenges and bridging the gaps in the procurement of essential materials. The three forces have also been directed to focus on editing anti-drone systems to thwart attacks by unmanned aerial vehicles.
