In one of the deadliest attack on an Army camp in Kashmir, terrorists have killed 20 Army soldiers and injured more than 19 in a suicide attack. Four terrorists struck the camp close to the headquarter of the 12th Brigade at Uri in Baramulla District . Uri Terror Attack is being considered as one of the deadliest terror attacks and an example of Pakistan sponsored terrorism.
The high number of casualties in the Uri Terror attack could be attributed to the fact that a large number of soldiers, from the Dogra Regiment, had been stationed at the camp in tents and other temporary structures as they were turning over from a tour of duty. Some of these temporary structures caught fire during the terror attack, and the fire spread to other parts of the barracks which resulted in high number of causalities.
The Uri terror attack is another example of Pakistan sponsored terrorism and shows the dual face of Pakistan. Pakistan prime minister Mr. Nawaz Sharif left for UN only two days ago where he has proclaimed numerous times that he will make every effort to stop terrorists using Pakistan land for terror camps. While this terror attack has been found to be directly sponsored by Pakistan and ISI. It is not the first time when Pakistan sponsored terrorism has shook the entire nation. India has always been a victim of Pakistan sponsored terrorism.
It is believed that the Uri terror attack was the handiwork of the terrorists who crossed the Line of Control (LoC) from Pak occupied Kashmir (PoK), who might have entered along the Salamabad Nallah into Uri in Baramulla District.
This terror attack took place just after two years of a similar type of attack at Mohra, in the same region. 10 security personnel were killed in the attack that took place on December 5, 2014.
