Two attacks on the base of the Indian Air Force in Punjab (India) since the beginning of the year


On Saturday 2 January 2016, the air base of the Indian Air Force Pathankot (Punjab) attacked dozens of militants armed with grenade launchers and automatic small arms. As a result of the attack on the airbase, four Indian servicemen were killed, and four others were injured. Four (according to other sources - five) attackers were eliminated.

In New Delhi, a statement was circulated stating that Pakistani militants could be involved in the attack on the airbase in Punjab. The Foreign Ministry of Pakistan, in turn, said that the official Islamabad condemns the attack on an Indian military object. From the message of the Pakistani Foreign Ministry in the official microblogging:

We offer our condolences to the authorities and the people of India, to the families of all the victims and wish a speedy recovery to the injured soldiers.

The official US State Department website material has appeared which also speaks of the condemnation of the terrorist acts against the Indian military.

On the number of victims of the second attack on the air base is not reported.

    Cool. It was worth the Indian Prime Minister to go to Pakistan for the first time in ten years, when all this stuff began with attacks on the base. It is unlikely that they are Pakistanis, they are both unprofitable and too demonstrative. I think the opponents of warming with Pakistan are trying.

      Indeed, some kind of strange attack by a handful of militants at a well-armed and guarded air base ... because the result is known in advance ... the director of this action would have to pull it out in the sun by the ear ... who is behind this ???

        But was it an attempt to hijack and hijack an airplane?
        Suddenly, someone is eager to inspect the work of our S-400.

      Anglo-Saxons do not sleep. It is time to free Islamabad from outside pressure.

    This is pure provocation .. Someone in Pakistan does not like the normalization of relations with India.

      Если это происходит, то "кому-то" это надо... А кому, здравомыслящий человек может сразу определить. Кукловод делает свое дело не смотря ни на что.

    I agree with the last comment, but only partially, the benefit of the growing tension in relations between the two countries does not seem to sound ridiculous, Saudi Arabia needs it. As soon as Pakistan has free hands, it will delve into other Middle Eastern problems.

    Another attempt to fan the global conflict, again, see who will benefit from this. I am very surprised that there are no attempts to rock the situation in Southeast Asia, it is full of frozen conflicts and religious movements.

    They would divide Britain into five countries, and wonder why they couldn’t live peacefully in one country, but now they’re ready to cut their throats to their neighbors.

    It just doesn’t need India and Pakistan to live in peace, but it’s possible. And whoever doesn’t need it, everyone knows, but they don’t say out loud that they don’t caress their mouth and don’t disinfect the keyboard.

    The object near the border with Pakistan was not chosen at all by chance, there is a provocation!

    Strange Indians are warriors. 50 people fought with the militants for 14 hours, and what was the connection with the army? Why didn’t you come to the rescue right away? What was far away and help went on foot or watched how it all ended?
