New Delhi: The pattern of terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir have witnessed a change in recent years.


According to former Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW) chief A.S. Dulat, terrorists from Pakistan have increased their attacks on defence establishments in Jammu and Kashmir in recent times. This is due to the fact that they see the security forces as their enemy and don't want to target the civilian population anymore.


Jammu and Kashmir and the neighbouring state of Punjab have witnessed several attacks on the establishments and installations of the security forces over the last four years. 


A terrorist attack carried out by a suicide bomber resulted in the martyrdom of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel at Pulwama on February 14 last year. The suicide bomber was identified as Adil Ahmed Dar of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM). He had rammed a vehicle packed with explosives into a bus which was a part of the CRPF convoy.


The garrison town of Uri witnessed an attack on September 18, 2016, when Pakistan-based terrorists entered an Indian Army and killed 18 unarmed soldiers.


The Pathankot base of the Indian Air Force (IAF) in Punjab was attacked by heavily-armed terrorists on January 2, 2016. Seven security forces personnel were martyred in that attack.
