Libertatem Magazine - - Uri Attacks -

It was a peace­ful dawn on the 18th of the Septem­ber in the beau­ti­ful val­ley of Uri, a place con­nected to the LOC with Pak­istan, un­til when a group of 4 heav­ily armed men with AK 47s, Un­der Bar­rel Grenade Launch­ers, and Grenades (both Hand and Bar­rel launched) ter­ror­ist at­tacked the Head Quar­ters of the Army Brigade, caus­ing the death of 19 Army Per­son­nel. As the re­ports later re­vealed, all the at­tack­ers were gunned down in the re­sponse and comb­ing op­er­a­tions be­tween the at­tack­ers and Army. The ter­ror­ists crossed the LOC and then the se­cured fenc­ing to reach out to the camp and were said to have com­plete knowl­edge about the ar­eas to at­tack. The per­pe­tra­tors of ter­ror were armed with Pak­istani stan­dard Army is­sued weapons and this is deemed to be one of the worst at­tacks ever on the In­dian Army, though the sce­nario of th­ese at­tacks has be­came very com­mon and sev­eral at­tacks of such na­ture have been car­ried out in the past one and a half years in­clud­ing the at­tack on the CRPF bus and Po­lice Sta­tion, Pathankot Air Base At­tack and the present one.

The at­tack has brought a bit­ter phase to al­ready tensed in­ter­na­tional re­la­tions with Pak­istan, with In­dia try­ing to cor­ner Pak­istan in front of the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity, with­draw­ing from the G20 sum­mit, de­lib­er­a­tions over the Most Fa­vored Nation Sta­tus to Pak­istan and In­dus Wa­ter Treaty are un­der­way..
