It continued that the terror strikes were “100 percent successful” and went on “exactly as planned”. PM Modi is meeting with top ministers of the Cabinet Committee on Security at his home in Delhi to confirm the situation.
Terror launch pads in Chakothi, Balakot, and Muzaffarabad across the LoC were damaged by laser-guided bombs and also the control rooms of JeM, report source.
India carried out the air terror strikes successfully, two weeks after Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir, which took lives of over 40 CRPF jawans and injured many, when a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed exploded a vehicle full of RDX next to a security convoy.
JeM is led by Masood Azhar, had claimed responsibility for the February 14 terror attack in Pulwama and had posted videos of the suicide bomber, who had just joined the terror outfit a year ago.
On September 29, 2016, Indian Army had carried out surgical strikes on several terrorist launch pads across LoC in retaliation to an attack on its base in J&K’s Uri earlier that month.
Soon after the recent terror attack, India appealed to the international community to back the naming of JeM Chief Masood Azhar as a “UN-designated terrorist”.
