New Delhi, June 27

The Indian Air Force (IAF) base in Jammu was attacked using two low-intensity improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which were allegedly dropped from a drone. 

The attack occurred around 1:30 am early on Sunday morning. 

The area was sealed by security forces within minutes.

“Two low-intensity explosions were reported early Sunday morning in the technical area of Jammu Air Force Station. One caused minor damage to the roof of a building while the other exploded in an open area,” the IAF tweeted this morning.

There was no damage to any equipment, and an investigation is in progress along with civil agencies, the Indian Air Force said.

A grenade attack has been ruled out for now as the blasts occurred close to the helicopter hangar, which is far from the perimeter fence. 

The Indian Air Force station at Jammu is an important base for helicopters operating along the Western Front and in the Himalayas.

The Jammu airport is a civil airport with the runway and the ATC is under the IAF.
