 The participation of the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror organization in the drone strike at Jammu airbase in the early hours of Sunday has been established by preliminary investigations undertaken by security agencies and the Jammu and Kashmir Police. The drone strike is connected to the discovery of a 6 kg IED from a LeT agent by Jammu police, which resulted in the arrest of at least three terror suspects by J&K police.


 

Although the security forces and the state police are being tightly moved by the drone strike, in reality, Pakistan's terror organization aimed either at the IAF parked helicopter or the radar at the air traffic control tower, ATC with one drone and the other.

 

“The two IEDs weighing around 5-6 kilograms with RDX as the main explosive charge were dropped at a distance of 50 yards from each other. One charge was some 40 yards from the ATC, while the other was around the same distance from the parked helicopter. The drop was made through a latitude-longitude device and that they missed the targets could be due to faulty execution or high wind factor,” said a senior security official. 

 

The two drones flew across the border, only 14.5 km from the Jammu airport, according to security officials and state police then returned after the strike. The drone is suspected of flying 1.2 km in height and of being fueled by long-range batteries.

The drone strike has aroused suspicion in the Jammu sector, with Pakistani terror organizations carrying out 14 drone sorties, the majority of which were carried out by LeT and two by Jaish-e-Mohammed. “Our estimate is that six sorties with weapon payloads were made in Samba sector, 3 to four in Hiranagar sector, 2 in Nowshera-Rajouri sector and another two in Arnia sector. We have found that the drones are assembled with different Chinese parts used of different makes for deniability. The dropped weapons were meant for Lashkar and Jaish operatives in the Valley with the specific design to disturb peace in Kashmir,” said a top security official.
