Enemies of humanity carried out attack: Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said “enemies of humanity” who could not digest India’s progress carried out the attack in Pathankot.
Modi assured that the defence forces had the strength to defeat “the evil designs of our enemy.” “...our security forces did not let them succeed: Proud of our jawans and security forces,” he said here, referring to Pakistani terrorists’pre-dawn strike at the Indian Air Force base at Pathankot in Punjab.
The fierce gunbattle claimed the lives of three securitymen, while five infiltrators were killed, with the terror strike coming days after Modi’s surprise stopover in Lahore in signs of thawing of relations with Pakistan.
“Today, enemies of humanity who can’t see India progress tried to strike at our strategic area, a prominent airbase at Pathankot. I appreciate our armed forces and thank them for foiling our enemy’s attempt,” Modi said, adding “our security forces did not let them succeed.”
