Pakistan-based outfit claims Pathankot attack

Srinagar, Jan 4 (IANS) The United Jehad Council (UJC), an umbrella grouping of Kashmiri militant groups based in Pakistan, on Monday claimed responsibility for the terror attack on the IAF base in Punjab.

The UJC, which is led by Syed Salahuddin, said the Saturday attack on the base at Pathankot “was carried out by the national highway squad of the UJC”.

The attack left seven security personnel dead and five terrorists dead.

Syed Sadaqat Hussain, who claimed to be a spokesman of the conglomerate of guerrilla groups based in Muzaffarabad in Pakistani Kashmir, said this in a statement mailed to Kashmir Media Network news agency.
