IAF Air Surgical Strike 2 in Pakistan: Twitter People reaction by memes and jokes poking fun at Pakistan after India’s airstrikes: Hours after a dozen IAF jets pounded terror camps across LoC, India confirmed the action, saying it had targeted the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad, the terror group involved in the February 14 attack on a CRPF convoy that claimed over 40 jawans. Slowly, the details started coming in and it became apparent that India had avenged the Jaish-e-Muhammad attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama less than two weeks ago. This is said to be the first cross-border air strike India has carried out in nearly five decades. The last such action was during the Bangladesh war in 1971. In an official statement, foreign affairs secretary has confirmed the strike. Here are details from various reports based on information from official sources.

 

IAF air strike in Pakistan live updates: Govt confirms air strike by Indian Air Force on Pakistan terror camps

Pakistan did scramble jets to retaliate but, according to an ANI report, turned back due to the sheer size of the Indian formation.

Statement by Foreign Secretary on 26 February 2019 on the Strike on JeM training camp at Balakot:

On 14 February 2019, a suicide terror attack was conducted by a Pak based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammad, leading to the martyrdom of 40 brave jawans of the CRPF. JeM has been active in Pakistan for the last two decades, and is led by MASOOD AZHAR with its headquarters in Bahawalpur.

This organization, which is proscribed by the UN, has been responsible of a series of terrorist attacks including on the Indian Parliament in December 2001 and the Pathankot airbase in January 2016.

Information regarding the location of training camps in Pakistan and PoJK has been provided to Pakistan from time to time. Pakistan, however, denies their existence. The existence of such massive training facilities capable of training hundreds of jidhadis could not have functioned without the knowledge of Pakistan authorities.

India has been repeatedly urging Pakistan to take action against the JeM to prevent jihadis from being trained and armed inside Pakistan. Pakistan has taken no concrete actions to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on its soil.

Credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. In the face of imminent danger, a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary.

In an intelligence led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot. In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen action were eliminated. This facility at Balakot was headed by MAULANA YOUSUF AZHAR (alias USTAD GHOURI), the brother-in-law of MASOOD AZHAR, Chief of JeM.
