New Delhi, September 18: Twitterati paid rich tributes to the 19 martyrs of the Indian Army who were martyred in the dastardly Uri attacks carried out by terrorists who crossed the Line of Control (LoC) on September 18, 2016. Indian users on Twitter remembered the bravehearts on the third anniversary of the attacks that robbed the Indian Army of 19 personnel. It was one of the worst attacks on the Indian Army in time of no-war situation before the Pulwama terror attack claimed the lives of 40 security personnel on February 14, 2018.

In the wee hours of September 18, 2016, four heavily armed terrorists attacked a strategic location in the Uri town on the Indian Army personnel sleeping in the tents across a temporary fuel station.

The attacks shook the nation and shaped India's policy of no tolerance towards terror approach in days to come. It was around 5:30 am on 18 September, that four militants attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in Uri, near the Line of Control in early morning ambush. They lobbed 17 grenades in three minutes. The base camp with tents caught fire, killing army personnel during the attack.

Some 11 days after the attacks, the Indian security forces carried out Surgical strikes across the border and gave a befitting reply to the enemy. The strikes are now a part of Indian Armed forces folklore, known as Uri surgical strikes which also caught the attention of the cultural and art milieu in India.
