Fighter jets of the Indian Air Force (IAF) crossed the Line of Control to Pakistan in the wee hours to destroy major terrorist camps with bombs.

Pakistan military’s spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor, however, claimed that though the Indian aircrafts crossed over to the neighbouring country, they were intercepted by the Pakistan Air Force and “released payload in haste” near Balakot without any casualties.

IAF sources then said that a group of Mirage 2000 Indian fighter jets struck a terror camp across the Line of Control (LoC) and completely destroyed it at 0330 hours on February 26.

The sources added that 10 Air Force Mirage jets dropped 1000 kg bombs on terror camps across the LoC. The targets were terror camps and launch pads of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) among other terrorist groups, the source said.

The airstrikes were in retaliation to the dastardly attack by a JeM suicide bomber on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir earlier this month, which claimed the lives of at least 40 soldiers.

Several Bollywood celebrities lauded the Indian Air Force for giving a befitting reply to the terrorists.

Ajay Devgn tweeted that ‘Mess with the best, die like the rest. Salute #IndianAirForce. @narendramodi.’

Ajay Devgn’s Tweet:

‘A TRULY BEAUTIFUL GOOD MORNING. THANKS, @narendramodi SIR AND BRAVEHEARTS OF OUR ARMY. JAI HO’, Paresh Rawal tweeted.
