Reportedly, nearly 250 terrorists belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad, trainers, senior commanders,  and other operatives have been killed in the air strikes by India.

On Tuesday early morning, the Indian Air Force conducted a ‘non-military pre-emptive strikes’ against the biggest Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorist camp in Balakot to counter multiple potential fidayeen attacks.

The Government of India in a press statement declared that Indian Air Force had conducted airstrikes based on credible intelligence that Jaish-e-Mohammed was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country and Fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. Reportedly, nearly 250 terrorists belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammad, trainers, senior commander,  and other operatives have been eliminated.

Meanwhile, based on intelligence sources, ANI has released photographs of the annihilated site at Balakot, where Jaish-e-Mohammad was running a terror camp.

According to the ANI reports, the intelligence sources suggest that an ammunition dump which had more than 200 AK rifles, uncountable rounds, hand grenades, explosives and detonators has also been destroyed.

The Indian Air Force had targetted key Jaish e Mohammed operatives. Reportedly, in the strike that took place on a hilltop in a forested location, Yusuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghauri, brother-in-law of JeM Chief Masood Azhar has been killed. Yousuf Azhar was one of the terrorists who had hijacked the Indian Airline flight IC-814 to Kandahar in 1999. India had to release JeM chief Masood Azhar in exchange for the passengers who were onboard the Indian aircraft.
