The drones dropped 2 kg of highly explosive IEDs were dropped at the Jammu Air Force station.

Two unmanned and remote-controlled vehicles (UAVs) dropped explosives close to a Mi-17 hanger on the intervening night of June 26-27. Two IAF personnel were injured in the explosions that took place within a gap of five minutes.

This is the first time UAVs have been used to strike a vital installation in India.

Around 2 kgs of IED explosives are used. As per the sources, if they come in touch with the ground or surface they may explode. The official said highly explosive content was used in the IEDs along with shrapnel. The official said forensic tests had been done and results were likely to be out in 42-48 hours.

As per the preliminary examination, the armed forces suspect that, the RDX may have been used in this attack.

Samples have been sent for lab tests, an official said. He said the picture would be clear in a day or two once the results are out

The RDX is not available in India and it could be sourced from Pakistan. This evidence can help nail Pakistan’s role in this drone attack.

Low flying drones are used to drop the explosives, these low flying drones can’t be detected using radars. No remnants were found at the air force station after the drone attack. Only splinters and remnants of explosives used in the blast have been recovered as of yet.

“A drone seems to have been used to drop IEDs. This was not on the periphery but near the helipad area.” The possible target of the attack was the aircraft parked in the dispersal area, they said.

In the past as well, drones were used to drop weapons but couldn’t be detected by the radar. This is, however, the first drone attack on any defence establishment in the country.

The armed forces are examining the CCTV footages to identify if the attack had launched through drones from proximity.

Normal radars can’t identify the drones, small range radars should be used, where, they can even identify as small as birds also.

The drones dropped the explosive material and were either flown back across the border or to some other destination during the night, the officials said. The aerial distance from the Jammu airport to the international border is 14 km.

Two people were arrested near Satwari Jammu in connection with this drone attack near Airforce station.

An FIR was also registered under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act after two explosives-laden drones crashed into the IAF station at Jammu airport. The case is being investigated by the terror probe agency NIA.

A National Security Guard team and Special Forces team also reached the station on Sunday to collect evidence.

Defence Minister also spoke to Vice Air Chief Marshal and Air Chief Marshal about the Drone attack and is in touch with them, continuously regarding the incident.

Necessary instructions have been passed to officers on the ground for a probe into the incident. Western Air Commander Air Marshal VR Chaudhari is on the ground, senior IAF officials said.

The Jammu people who have been staying nearby are saying that they heard deafening sounds, which rocked the entire area. The locals said that they were shocked.

Nearby Air Bases are on high alert as well now. The three airport bases are on high alert, Srinagar airport, Srinagar technical airport and Awantipora airbase. Ambala and Pathankot air force stations were also put on alert.

  6. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Thanks

  7. Hello, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, terrific blog!

  8. I think everything typed made a ton of sense. But, what about
    this? suppose you composed a catchier post title? I am not saying your content isn’t
    good., however what if you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean The Drone attack on Jammu Airforce
    Base | Capital Delhi is a little plain. You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they
    write article titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
