The convoy was traveling on the Jammu-Srinagar National Highway. The terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed responsibility for the attack. The incident led to a tense situation between India and Pakistan, with India accusing Pakistan of supporting terrorist organizations operating in the region.
