Armed forces detected and defused two suspected box-type improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday.

The officials said the two small boxes were detected in Bhata Durian Forest during a joint search operation by the Army and police.

The boxes were suspected to be IEDs and were destroyed in-situ, they said.

This is a third instance of IEDs being detected by troops in J&K since Thursday.

The boxes, which were defused by the army, were IED fitted in the branch of a tree in the forest area of Sawalkot in Ratangir ridge.

Before this incident, security forces defused an IED in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir.
