New Delhi: Pakistan-based terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad has been very active in 2016 and responsible for all the attacks on the Indian military establishments.
January 2, 2016 - The Pathankot terror attack was carried out by JeM militants, who attacked the Indian Air Force base and killed seven security personnel. The attack had further strained the bilateral ties between India and Pakistan.
September 18, 2016 - JeM militants carried out terror attack at the Indian Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri in which 18 soldiers were killed and 30 others injured.
October 2, 2016 - Terrorists carried out a 'fidayeen' (suicide) attack on an Army camp located on the outskirts of Baramulla town.
October 6, 2016 - Three terrorists, believed to be associated with the Pakistan-based terror outfit JeM, were killed in a gunfight that erupted after they attacked a counter-insurgency Rashtriya Rifles (RR) camp in north Kashmir's Kupwara district.
Masood Azhar is the mastermind of the 2001 Indian Parliament attack, which catapulted the nuclear-armed rivals to the brink of a war.
In a move that further aggravated Beijing's tensions with India, China recently extended its decision to put a technical hold on the United Nations declaring Pakistan-based JeM chief Massod Azhar a terrorist.
In a befittting reply to the terror attacks, Indian Army conducted successful surgical strike across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28-29.
Seven terror launch pads across the LoC were targeted by the Army in a nearly five-hour-long operation during which heliborne and ground forces were deployed.
