IANS  |  New Delhi 

The US on Sunday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Jammu and that left 17 soldiers dead.

"We strongly condemn the terror attack in Uri. Our thoughts are with the families of the brave soldiers who lost their lives," US Ambassador to India Richard Verma said in a tweet.

Terrorists sneaked into the army camp at Uri early on Sunday and in the worst attack on a military centre in the state in a decade killed 17 soldiers.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly condemned the "cowardly terror attack" and assured the nation that "those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished".

Modi refrained from saying who was to blame for the bloodbath but Home Minister Rajnath Singh held Pakistan responsible.
