Terror seems to be on high alert. It was recently that the Pulwama Attack got the nation shocked when the Indian army soldiers were martyred by the terrorist attacks. However, the latest buzz is that the Indian Air Force has launched air strikes on terror camps and the launch pads all across the Line of Control (LoC) in the Kashmir region which is occupied by Pakistan. The air strike started off at 3.30am on Tuesday, 26th February 2019.
According to the sources, the Indian Air Force has dropped 1,000 kg bombs on the Jaish bases all across the LoC by multiple jets, which includes the IAF’s Mirage 2000.
On the other side, Pakistan military spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor alleges the Indian Air Force on a tweet for violating the Line of Control. His tweet said, “Indian Air Force violated Line of Control. Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircraft went back. Details to follow.”
However, he claimed that there were no casualties and no damages were reported in the attack. On the contrary, the top Indian government sources say that there were about 200 casualties from the IAF strike. The terror launch pads were across the LoC in Balakot, Chakothi, and Muzaffarabad sectors, which have apparently been completely destroyed along with the JeM control rooms.
While the Indian officials refused to comment on the same, however, it according to the sources, the force was trying to target the Jaish-e-Mohammed hideout in Balakot sector with the laser-guided bombs.
The government officials and countrymen are congratulating the Indian Airforce and saluting the pilots of the Indian Air Force for their attack on the Balakot and other launch pads. There are a number of tweets all over twitter.
This attack is called the Surgical Strike 2.0. The Jaish-e-Mohammed had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack on February 14, 2019. It was when a suicide bomber of the Pakistan based camp exploded a car full of bombs. On September 29, 2016, the army had carried out surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in retaliation to an attack on its base in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri earlier that month.
The Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, is chairing a high-level CSS meeting in New Delhi, along with the union ministers on the attack.
