The anti-terror operation inside the Sunjuwan army camp has been continuing for the last three days as it has not been officially called off so far.
Three terrorists were killed by the army during the operation that has now been on for over 50 hours.
Five soldiers and a civilian were killed by terrorists, who entered the army camp around 4.45 a.m. on Saturday.
Initial reports had said four JeM terrorists had entered the two buildings of the Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) quarters after hurling grenades and using heavy volume of automatic gunfire on Saturday.
