Terror Launch-Pads at Threat as India Set To Acquire 54 Israeli HAROP Attack Drones

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 “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 promising 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.
