Mirage jets destroy Pakistan terror camp with 1,000 kg bombs in pre-dawn strike

Delhi: Indian Air Force jets crossed the Line of Control and destroyed a major terrorist camp in Balakote sector, sources said.

The airstrike took place at 3.30 am, the sources said.

Several Mirage 2000 aircraft dropped 1,000 kg bombs on terrorist camps across the LoC.
 
Sources said terrorist launchpads in Balakot, Chakothi and Muzaffarabad were completely destroyed in the IAF air strikes, and that Jaish-e-Mohammed control rooms were also destroyed.

Earlier, a spokesperson for the Pakistan Armed Forces claimed that the IAF violated the LoC, and that the Pakistan Air Force responded immediately, after which the Indian aircraft went back.

India's airstrikes come days after Jaish-e-Mohammed, a Pakistan-based terrorist group, carried out a suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir, killing 40 CRPF soldiers.

India vowed to take revenge for the attack, and has already killed its mastermind in an encounter in Pulwama.

It has gone on a diplomatic offensive to isolate Pakistan on the world stage, increased basic customs duty on Pakistan exports, and reiterated plans to stop its share of Indus water from flowing to Pakistan.
