According to reports, a number of security forces were injured and three of them did not make it. Indian intelligence had prior report of an impending terrorist attack hence all forces were ready for a contingency. Pakistan condemned the attack by saying, “We extend heartfelt condolences to the Government and people of India and the bereaved families and wish the wounded speedy and full recovery. Building on the goodwill created during the recent high level contacts between the two countries, Pakistan remains committed to partner with India as well as other countries in the region to completely eradicate the menace of terrorism afflicting our region.”

The main purpose of this attack is still unclear. It is assumed that the terrorists wanted to damage and destroy valuable air force property but they completely failed in doing so. Defence Minister Manohar Parikar arrived at Pathankot along with the three army chiefs in the afternoon.
