Pakistan Army has rubbished Indian claims of an attack on Pakistani and killing 350 terrorists. Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said its fighter jets attacked a camp in Balakot, and a “very large number” of militants from the Jaish-e-Mohammad group were killed in the nighttime attack.

“Not even a single brick or debris is present there. They are claiming 350 deaths. Even had there been 10 casualties, there would be blood, funeral prayers, injuries,” Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a news conference on Tuesday afternoon.

The military spokesman refuted claims that PAF was not ready to deal with any Indian misadventure. “We were ready, we responded, we denied,” he said. “It is your [India] turn now to wait and get ready for our surprise.”

Ghafoor said the Indian aircraft were chased away by PAF jets, which were immediately scrambled to thwart any aggressive move by the country’s eastern neighbour. His reaction came hours after the National Security Committee strongly rejected Indian claims, saying New Delhi had “resorted to a self-serving, reckless and fictitious claim”. The meeting, which was attended by top civil-military leadership, resolved to respond “at the time and place of its choosing”.
