On the dawn of 27th February India conducted the biggest, stealthiest and the deadliest non-military, pre-emptive strike within Pakistan to target a training camp of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
This strike was a retaliation in result of the Pulwama attack that occurred 2 weeks ago in which 44 innocent soldiers were killed brutally by a suicide bomber who attacked the CRPF convoy of more than 2500 soldiers. The morning of 26 February the Indian Air Force crossed the Line of Control for the first time since 1971.
Twelve Mirage 2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force crossed the Line of Control, around 3.30 am, dropped 1,000 kg bombs on the terror training facility at Balakot, which was the hub of suicide attack training, said government sources.
There were several terrorists, trainers and Jaish commanders who were planning more terror strikes, such as Pulwama, in India were killed in this attack. This strike killed over 300 terrorists including Jaish chief Masood Azhar’s brother-in-law and some of his close relatives, as confirmed by the sources. There was very credible intelligence information that Jaish-e-Mohammed was planning to carry out terror strikes across India, which made this strike absolutely necessary. In a matter of few minutes all of the terrorist base was destroyed and a whole big devastation was put to rest. During this strike no civilian was harmed but only the terrorists.
The situation between India and Pakistan became really tense after the recent attack. An unwanted chain of unfortunate and insane events would have started if this strike would not have taken place.
It’s commendable work and approach by the Indian Air Force, they held their cool and took revenge at just the appropriate time their style in the rightest way removing those who are supposed to instead of the innocent citizens of that country.
India has neither trusted in unnecessary war nor has India thought of harming Pakistan in any way ever. Its not the country that’s bad it’s the terrorist groups, who have been provided shelter by their government promoting activities like these. Terrorism will only consume all and everyone in today and tomorrow in the nick of time and there won’t be anything that could be done then, as greed has no boundaries, and it holds true if its for conquering the world itself, it always has. India is a peace promoting united nation which stands opening arms for anyone who wishes to be friends but that doesn’t mean it wont harm backstabbers. We are not at war but if someone attacks, we won’t sit quiet too.
