Pakistan Based Militants Attacked By India

Posted on February 26, 2019

Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said the strikes targeted Balakot, but it is not clear if that is in Pakistan or Pakistani-administered Kashmir. He said several militants were killed.
Pakistan said it scrambled fighter planes in response.
The move represents an escalation of hostilities between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.
Mr Gokhale told a news conference that the strikes had targeted the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).
“A large number of JeM terrorists were killed. The strike avoided civil casualties,” he said.
“Credible intel [intelligence] was received that JeM was planning more suicide attacks in India. In the face of imminent danger, a pre-emptive strike became absolutely necessary.”
He said senior commanders of the group had been killed.
The latest incident follows a suicide attack on an Indian security convoy in Pulwama, in Indian-administered Kashmir, earlier this month.
