The Indian Air Force on Tuesday morning striked on the terror camps of Pakistan. Twelve days after the horrific Pulwama Terror Attack which killed over 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, IAF has definitely given a beffitting reply to Pakistan. Reportedly, the strike took place around 3: 30 AM using 12 Mirage 2,000 fighter jets with over 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs dropped on three major terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC).
As India celebrates, South star Kamal Haasan took to his Twitter handle and wrote: “Our 12 return safely home after wreaking havoc on terrorist camps in Pakistan. India is proud of its heroes. I salute their valour. [sic]”
Reacting to the successful strike carried out by IAF, other South Indian stars also wrote on Twitter -
As per sources, Jaish-e-Mohammed terror launchpads at Balakot, Chakoti and Muzaffarabad were destroyed in the operation.
The strike on Pakistani terror launchpads comes just short of two weeks after the heinous Pulwama terror attack in which a suicide bomber in an explosives-laden car targeted a CRPF convoy. 40 CRPF Jawans were martyred in the attack for which the Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility shortly afterwards. In the days following the attack, the Indian government, including the Prime Minister and the Home Minister, have made clear that the Armed Forces had been given a free rein to avenge the attack.
