Clad in police uniforms, over a dozen militants stormed the base. However, a quick response from the military Quick Reaction Force (QRF), thirteen militants were killed after a fierce gun battle. Exact number of the militants is not known. A young army captain leading the QRF is also said to have lost his life while fighting the militants head-on.

The militants were wearing explosives-laden jackets and were armed with grenades and AK-47 rifles.

It may be added that the Pakistan Army is pursuing a fierce chase of the militants in a large scale operation and has had many gains - upsetting th4e militants and the attack on the base shows their frustration.
