Minutes before MEA briefing, deleted Tweet from Pakistani handle confirms that IAF penetrated Pakistani territory

Reportedly, 12 Mirage jets took part in the Operation and 1000 Kg of bombs were dropped on terror camps across the Line of Control, destroying them utterly.

As we have reported earlier, a narrative is being peddled currently by Pakistanis that the Balakot that the Spokesperson of their Army referred to is, in fact, a small village within Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir and not the Balakot which is in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, inside Pakistan’s territory.

Moments earlier, in the MEA briefing, it was confirmed that IAF struck Balakot deep in Pakistan territory.

In what appears to be further confirmation, a Pakistani handle tweeted that the attack did happen at Balakot is inside Pakistan’s territory and then proceeded to delete his tweet minutes before the MEA briefing.

The initial tweet was made at 7.24 a.m., then in an act of apparent damage control, it was deleted and then the Pakistani establishment version of events was tweeted from the same handle.

Even Pakistani media has accepted the fact that it did occur within Pakistani territory, even though some people on our side of the Border may be hesitant to admit that fact.

As we had reported earlier, the Pakistani Army has claimed that the Indian Air Force had entered Pakistani territory and reached as far as Balakot, a town in Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.

Reportedly, 12 Mirage jets took part in the Operation and 1000 Kg of bombs were dropped on terror camps across the Line of Control, destroying them utterly.
