An Army vehicle was damaged in an improvised explosive device (IED) blast triggered by terrorists in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday, August 2.
The attack was aimed at a vehicle of the 55 Rashtriya Rifles (RR) in ZahidBagh village of south Kashmir. No loss of life or casualties has been reported in the incident. However, minor damage was caused to the Army vehicle due to the blast.
