New Delhi – According to Indian media claims, Indian Air Force fighter jets have destroyed multiple terrorist camps across the Line of Control (LOC) in the early hours of Tuesday, destroying all the major Jaish militant camps.
According to news agency ANI, earlier on Tuesday, Pakistan armed forces spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor claimed Indian aircraft “intruded from Muzaffarabad sector” and “dropped a payload” near Balakot “facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force”.
ANI reports, quoting sources in the Indian Air Force, said at 0330 hours on February 26, a group of Mirage 2000 Indian Fighter jets struck a major terrorist camp across the LoC and completely destroyed it.
The IAF source further told ANI that 1000-kg bombs were dropped on terror camps across the LoC, adding that 12 Mirage 2000 jets took part in the operation.
Union Minister Shekhawat was the first one to inform about the attack via Twitter, while Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Aam Admi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal also tweeted praising the Indian Air Force for the attacks.
But, Pakistan has reportedly denied any damage caused to life or property.
On the other hand, NSA (National Security Advisor) Ajit Doval met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a high-level meeting at Lok Kalyan Marg.
However, Indian Air Force has put all its Air Defence Systems on high alert to check any retaliation from Pakistan Air Force.
