What is a Mortar?

 A mortar is an artillery weapon which fires explosive shells. As mortars do not have long-range, the shells are fired at targets which are close.

The shells are known as (mortar) bombs. It has a short barrel which fires the mortar bomb at low speed high into the air to reach its target.

 

The region of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh has been under the strict vigilance of the district administration, state police, para-military forces and Indian Army after the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5.

There were some reports of infiltration of terrorists from Pakistan a few days back.
