    Is it ambush or post attract. Two face In one coin. I don’t think army will patrol with more than 40 men and slip into ambush so easy. And I don’t think either militants will just fire a little and away so easy when army post adjacent to civil residents. News channel should not distribute items which is full of lies from any quarter. Becous it feeds unnessaries headache to public. This is nonsense.
