India launches major attack against Pak terrorists, IAF strikes camps across LoC

Weeks after terrorists from Pakistan killed over 40 CRPF jawans in a brutal attack in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian Air Force (IAF) today dropped bombs on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC). According to reports, at around 3.30 am today, a group of Mirage 2000 Indian Fighter jets struck a major terrorist camp across the LoC and completely destroyed it.

Following this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was briefed by NSA Ajit Doval on air strikes and a high level meeting took place at the PM's residence in New Delhi. Stating that IAF destroyed three JeM camps, reports added that Indian Air Force has put on high alert all air defence systems along the international border and LoC to respond to any possible action by Pakistan Air Force. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Army has alleged that the Indian Air Force violated the Line of Control in Muzafarabad sector.

Major General Asif Ghafoor, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the media wing of the Pakistan Army, said in a tweet: "Indian aircraft intruded from Muzafarabad sector. Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage," He added: "Indian Air Force violated Line of Control Pakistan. Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircraft gone back."
