Four heavily armed terrorists had attacked an Indian Army base near Uri in the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir on 18 September 2016. It was reported as “the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir in two decades”. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, though the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed is suspected of being involved in the planning and execution of the attack. At the time of the attack, the Kashmir Valley region was at the center of unrest, during which 85 civilians had been killed and thousands injured in clashes with security forces.

India had warned Pakistan that it may carry out surgical strikes to destroy militant bases supported by Pakistan.
