Terrorists Attack Army Base In Uri, Search Ops Underway

In one of the worst terrorist attacks on the Indian Army by fidayeen attackers, at least 17 army jawans were killed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri when a four-man fidayeen squad attacked the rear office of an Indian Army infantry installation early Sunday morning. Most of the martyred soldiers were from 10 Dogra and 6 Bihar regiments. The initial investigations by the Army indicated the role of Jaish-e-Mohammed in the attack with weapons recovered from the slain terrorists having Pakistan marking.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly condemned the attack and said the perpetrators will be brought to justice. Home Minister Rajnath Singh echoed his sentiments and targeted “terrorist state” Pakistan and said it will be identified and isolated.
Uri town is located barely a few kilometres from the LOC. There is normally heavy presence of army in and around Uri town and on the LoC. The attack, however, has left officials surprised. It comes two years after militants stormed a camp in Mohra in Uri, 15 kilometres away from the location of Sunday’s attack.
