Washington: A prominent US congressman termed the Uri attack in India by Pakistan based terrorists as a horrific incident while another said America stands with India and its decision to launch surgical strike to destroy terrorist camps across the Kashmir border.
“Uri attack against India was horrific; prayers are w/victims’ families. I will cnte [continue] to follow India’s subsequent counter terrorism op closely,” Congressman Steny Hoyer, Democratic Whip in the US House of Representatives tweeted on Friday.
Another Senator from Arizona Jeff Flake posted: “Condolences to the victims of last week’s terrorist attack on the Indian Army base in Kashmir. We stand with #India fighting terrorism.”
Pete Olson, another Congressman, tweeted: “Our sympathy and support go out to India as they work to counter the terrorism they faced in the Uri Attack.”
Amid mass anger in India over the Uri attack in Kashmir in which several Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani terrorists, India on Wednesday night carried out surgical strikes crossing the Line of Control (LoC) into Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, targeting terrorist launchpads working from within the neighbouring country.
