Indian Air Force Strikes “Terror” Launch Pads in Pakistan – Beginning of Impending Conflict?

Indian Air Force crossed the Line of Control (LoC), intruding from the Muzaffarabad sector in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and allegedly bombed terror hideouts.

Major-General Asif Ghafoor – Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations of Pakistan, accepted the intrusion of the Indian Air Force.

12 Mirage 2000 Indian Fighter jets struck terror camps across the LoC at 3:30 am on Tuesday, 26 February, and dropped 1,000 kg bombs destroying the camps, reported ANI quoting IAF sources. However, Pakistan is reportedly denying any damage caused to life or property,

Ghafoor, in his tweet, said, “Indian Air Force violated Line of Control,” following which “Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled,” and Indian jets went back. He later added that the aircraft faced a “timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force” and ended up releasing “payload in haste while escaping, which fell near Balakot.” No casualties or damage occurred, the military spokesman said.

India-Pakistan relations have been tense since a suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir that killed over 40 Indian CRPF soldiers, and New Delhi promised stern action against Pakistan.

In response to India’s allegations, PM Imran Khan promised Delhi to conduct an investigation if provided “actionable evidence” but also warned that Pakistan will “retaliate” if attacked.

The Pakistan army has also warned India to avoid “any misadventure,” saying it could have dangerous consequences.
