New Delhi: The Indian Government has confirmed airstrikes along the Line of Control (LOC). Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said that the strike at Balakot destroyed the biggest terrorist camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which was responsible for the Pulwama attack.
The JeM camp at Balakot was run by Maulana Yusuf Azhar, the brother-in-law of Masood Azhar.
The Foreign Secretary said there was credible intelligence that JeM was planning more terror attacks in India. In order to neutralize the threat, India bombed the JeM camp killing around 300 terrorists in a “preemptive strike”.
He continued that top commanders of the terror outfit have been eliminated in the attack.
