As many as 17 soldiers were martyred while four militants were gunned down when they attacked the 12th brigade headquarters of the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri sector on Sunday morning.
The terrorists entered the base camp after cutting the fencing wires and indulged in indiscreet firing. In retaliation, the soldiers gunned down four of them while 17 servicemen were also killed in the assault.
