Jammu, which had been relatively terror-free over the past two decades until 2021, has witnessed a spate of militant attacks this year, hinting at a shift in the terror terrain from the Kashmir Valley. 

A total of 17 civilians and 10 security personnel have been killed in terror attacks in the first seven months of this year, against 14 civilians and 30 security personnel in the whole of 2023. 

Here are some of the attacks in Jammu and Kashmir on security forces in the past 72 days since April 28:
