The IG said that, "Some reported that the attack was at the airport".
In a pre-dawn attack, fidayeen (suicide) militants attacked a Border Security Force (BSF) camp near the Srinagar International Airport leading to a fierce gunfight in which three attackers and a paramilitary trooper have been killed and three others injured so far.
One of the three Jaish terrorists was killed minutes after the three attempted laying siege to the headquarters of the BSF's 182 battalion in Humhama, Srinagar.
"We have resumed operations, passengers now allowed to proceed to the airport", the director of Srinagar Airport, Sharad Kumar, told media. "But the state government said no, saying they can deal with it on their own", said a senior government official in the security establishment. All these things will keep happening, as long as Pakistan is our neighbour. A member of the Pakistan-based terror camp JeM had even conducted an inspection of the area.
Kashmir rebels have battled Indian forces for decades, demanding either independence or a merger with Pakistan. The officer told TOI that it appears that the JeM terrorists had conducted a survey of the airport to attack it but since they couldn't find a way to breach the security of the airport, they made a decision to attack the camp. While some spread out into Anantnag, Kulgam, Pulwama and Shopian districts of South Kashmir, three to four terrorists are believed to be in Srinagar alone.

At least three militants and one Indian soldier have been killed during violent clashes that erupted after an attack on an Indian paramilitary training camp in the disputed Kashmir region.
"We have identified the overground worker who is himself also a militant". "Only one flight was delayed or cancelled, and the rest operated normally", Mr. Khan said.
After the attack on Tuesday, the police said they were looking for seven more militants from the same group.
The spike in militancy-related incidents may be because "they (militants) want to telegraph a message that they can strike at will in any part of the Kashmir Valley", a highly placed police source said. By that time the Rashtriya Rifles, SOG (Special Operations Group) and CRPF also joined the operation.
"The local cadres of militants in Kashmir have been eliminated by security forces".
