Suicide Bombing Kills At Least 40 Indian Security Personnel In Kashmir. India Blames Pakistan

Photo from the scene

At least 40 Indian security personnel were killed in a suicide bombing in India-administratived Kashmir on February 14. This was the worst such attack in two decades of Kashmir conflict.

The suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden car into a bus carrying paramilitary troopers in Lethpora village near Awantipora along a highway in Pulwama district.  This highway connects Kashmir’s main city of Srinagar with the region’s southern parts.

The attacked convoy consisted of 78 vehicles with over 2,500 security personnel.

Commenting on the attack, the Indian government in fact blamed Pakistan for it and demanded the neighbour nation to stop “supporting terrorists and terror groups operating from their [its] territory.” It also appealed to the “international community to support the proposal to list terrorists, including Jaish-e-Mohammed Chief Masood Azhar, as a designated terrorist under the 1267 Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council.”

    This coming just after India voiced support for Maduro and its by-passing the petro-dollar in oil trades because of U.S. sanctions. Meanwhile, the IRGC gave Pakistan a choice- either you deal with the CIA/Mossad/Saudi supported bombers crossing the border or we’ll do it, inside Pakistan. No surprise if Iran and India co-ordinate their responses.

    I wonder who would benefit from this? There are those in Pakistan that are not happy about Khan and his decision to dump the US and quit being their bitch. Surely Israel, who is heavily involved in the area, and the US would not do such a crime. False flags, terrorist attacks and stirring up trouble are their stock in trade.

      It wasn’t the Pakis that dumped the US, it was just the opposite.
