Amarnath Yatra Attack: US condemns cowardly attack, vows to combat terror

Manipur CM, Assam Minister, social media react to Amarnath Terror attack that killed 7!

SRINAGAR/JAMMU The dastardly terror attack on Amarnath yatris in Kashmir's Anantnag district on Monday, which left seven dead and 19 injured, has failed to cower other pilgrims or the administration, which carried on with the annual tour to Lord Shiva's cave shrine.

The group said India was behind the attack, "to sabotage the freedom struggle of Kashmiris" and fulfill "its nefarious agenda" to crush the popular anti-India rebellion. "The United States and India will continue to fight together against terrorist threats in every part of the world", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement issued two days after the attack.

"We are too anxious about the United Nations will say and the sanctions that our allies will impose", this person added.

Soon after the attack, the United States and US Embassy Chargé d'Affaires MaryKay Carlsonstrongly condemned the attack and said that the country is aginst all acts of terrorism.

Asked about the condemnation of the attack by Kashmiri civil society, trade and tourism bodies as well as by separatists and militant organisations, Singh said that all should rise above the political and ideological lines.

Condemnation against the Amarnath attack has continued to pour in from the global community.

Meanwhile, several U.S. Congressmen also condemned the terror attack.

Dorokhin further said, "our joint efforts and unity in developing our cooperation will be the basis for ensuring security in Eurasia". "The terrorists are frustrated at the back to back losses suffered by them during counter-insurgency operations over the past month or so and have now resorted to attacking civilians and tourists".

Salahuddin also leads the United Jihad Council, an umbrella organisation for anti-India terrorist organisations such as Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed, known to operate out of Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir. "Deepest condolences to the families & all those affected", Carlson tweeted.

Singh hailed the people of Kashmir for unanimously condemning the attack and asserted that the yatra would continue uninterrupted despite the terror attack. Amarnath yatra represents faith and pilgrimage.

Earlier, France in its statement said, "France condemns the attack that on 10th July claimed the lives of several pilgrims who were travelling to the Amarnath shrine".
