On February 14, Pulwama was hit by the worst terror-attack the valley saw in decades. A JeM operative attacked a CRPF convoy on Jammu-Srinagar highway. 40 soldiers were martyred in the suicide bomb blast.

The attack strained Indo-Pak ties and prompted IAF to launch airstrikes.

12 IAF jets bombed JeM's biggest camp in Balakot after Pakistan refused to act on home-grown terrorism.
