New Delhi, Nov 30 (IANS) Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday condemned the terror strike on the army base in Nagrota in Jammu and Kashmir where seven army personnel were killed.

"I pay my homage to the brave officers and soldiers who lost their lives in the attack. My heart goes out to their families and I pray that Almighty gives them strength to bear the irreparable loss," said Azad.

Expressing deep concern on the increasing frequency of such attacks and incidents of firing along the border in the last few months, Azad urged the government to take concrete steps to prevent such occurrences in the future.

Seven soldiers, including two officers, were killed on Tuesday after suicide bombers armed with guns and grenades stormed a military base near Jammu, officials said.

Three attackers were also gunned down while three more militants died in a shootout with security forces near the International Border with Pakistan.
