After the airstrike across the Line of Control on Tuesday, India has introduced the process of briefing foreign countries about the move.
Foreign Secreatary Vijay Gokhale brief the foreign diplomats in the South Block on the IAF strike carried out at a massive Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Foreign diplomats from the US, UK, Russia, Australia, Indonesia, Turkey and six ASEAN nations are being directed by Foreign Secretary.
The terror camps in Balakot, Chakothi and Muzaffarabad, capital of PoK, were struck by 12 Mirage 2000 jets with 1000 kg of explosives at around 3:30 am, IAF sources said.
The targets included the control rooms of JeM outfit which carried out a terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Pulwama on February 14 in which 40 army personnel were killed and five other injured.
According to the sources, the JeM control room was completely destroyed in the air strike.
12 days after the Pulwama terror attack, the Indian Air Force carried out multiple aerial strikes at terror launch pads at various places in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, destroying control rooms of JeM and some other infrastructure.
Pulwama terror attack had led to nationwide outrage and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had vowed to punish those behind the attack.
The US supports India for the deadly Pulwama attack and said India’s “right to self-defence” in the return of attack.
