Sri Lanka condemns terrorist attack on Indian military base

135695800_14742420221421nThe Sri Lankan Government today strongly condemned the terrorist attack on an Indian military base in Kashmir in which at least 17 soldiers were killed.

The Foreign Ministry said that Sri Lanka, as a country, that has undergone the scourge of terrorism for almost three decades resents all forms and manifestation of terrorism.

“In the hour of grief, the government of Sri Lanka offers its condolences to the families of the victims of the attack. The government of Sri Lanka reiterates the urgent need for sustained regional and global cooperation to eliminate the menace of terrorism,” the Foreign Ministry said.

At least 17 Indian troopers were killed and over 20 others wounded Sunday in a suicide attack on an Indian military base near Line of Control (LoC) dividing Kashmir, the Xinhua news agency reported.

Kashmir has been on the boil since the killing of 22-year-old militant commander Burhan Wani by Indian security forces in July. More than 80 people have been killed and over 10,000 others injured in violence in the aftermath of the killing.

This is also the second major terror attack at a defense base in northern India, the first being in January this year when some six terrorists entered the high security Pathankot air base in Punjab and opened fire, killing seven military personnel. (Colombo Gazette)
