JeM blames 'Kashmiri Mujahideens' for Uri attack

Jaish-e-Mohammad has refuted Indian Army's claims and blamed 'Kashmiri Mujahideens' for the Uri attack.

Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) has refuted Indian Army’s claims on Uri attack.

JeM in a message published on its website said that the attack in Kashmir’s Uri sector, in which 18 jawans were killed, was carried out by ‘home-grown Kashmiri mujahideens’, NewsX reported.

“The attacks were carried out by home-grown Kashmiri mujahideens in retaliation to the ongoing oppressions by the Indian Army…Modi government is upset with its failure in Kashmir and is now blaming Pakistan for the attacks without any evidence,” the message said according to the website.

Hours after the attack, the Indian Army said that the four militants who carried out the attack belonged to JeM.

“They were all foreigners and belonged to the Jaish-e-Mohammed,” General Ranbir Singh had said in a statement to IANS.
