That was the drone attack
A drone struck the two-storey building of the Indian Air Force’s Satwari project on Sunday morning carrying six kilograms of explosives. Two people were injured in the attack and the roof of the building exploded. The explosives were dropped with the help of a drone. It may have been mixed with some chemicals, including RDX, but this has not been confirmed. The planes dropped their explosives at night and flew over the border. The international border is 14 km from Jammu airport. The Indian Air Force on Monday launched two drones near the base of Jammu airport after the attack. The Indian army fired at it, so it retreated.
An emergency meeting was convened on Tuesday
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today held an urgent meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and National Security Adviser Ajit Dobal following the drone strike on an air force base in Jammu. The meeting focused on formulating a comprehensive strategy to address the security of the country and future challenges, said someone familiar with the developments. The Government will soon formulate a strategy to collectively address the emerging challenges, and work is underway to formulate this strategy through various Ministries and Departments. The Ministry of Defense and the three Armed Forces will play a key role in this. Drone strikes are now underway and all three forces have been asked to focus on tackling these new challenges and eliminating the shortcomings in procuring the necessary materials. All three forces have been instructed to focus on correcting anti-drone systems to prevent unmanned aerial vehicles from attacking.
