How Intense Was Pulwama Attack?
This is the worst terror strike in the state since the Uri attack in 2016. The explosive used in the attack was so strong that the blast was heard from 10-12 km away, including some parts of Srinagar adjoining the Pulwama district. This was the first suicide car bomb strike in Kashmir since the 2001 attack on the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly that left 41 persons, including three suicide attackers, dead.
At least 37 CRPF personnel have been martyred in a terrorist attack on a convoy of the security force. More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Valley, were travelling in the convoy of 78 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir around 3.15 pm.
The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group has claimed responsibility for the attack that took place about 20 km from Srinagar, officials said. Police identified the suicide bomber as Adil Ahmed, who officials said joined the Jaish in 2018.
Pulwama Attack Revenge
In response to this, India withdraws Most-Favoured Nation status given to Pakistan. Pakistani high commissioner to India Summoned.
In an early morning strike, Indian fighter jets have struck at terrorist targets in Pakistan, destroying a training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, the terror outfit that had carried out a suicide attack, killing 40 CRPF personnel in Pulwama on February 14.
The operation was a befitting reply by India to the Pulwama terror attack and was also the need of the hour. The audacity with which the airforce conducted the operation needs to be saluted as it is not an easy task to penetrate so deep into the Pakistani territory and return successfully.
