After being at the receiving end of India’s retribution in the form Balakot air strikes, Pakistan reportedly continues to be in a state of panic.

Evidently, Rawalpindi has instructed commanders of terrorist groups to be prepared to save themselves in wake of India’s increasing assertiveness in it’s counter terrorism, reports Indian Defence News.

Pakistan military is trying to camouflage terrorists by asking them to wear the its army’s uniform to make it harder for outsiders to distinguish between its soldiers and terrorists.

According to reports, in a recent, high profile meeting held between the ISI, Pak Army and Lashkar terrorists in Nikayal, it was decided to subsume the terror camps into the Pak Army camps to avoid being detected by the Indian satellites.

In the case of Balakot attacks, around 200-300 terrorists along with their handlers were caught sitting ducks to the Mirage-2000s of Indian Air Force (IAF) that precisely bombed the camp situated atop a hill. The attack was carried as a response to the Pulwama terrorist attack that claimed lives of 44 CRPF jawans.

With the backing of some top class intelligence and satellite feed, the IAF, for the first time since 1971, entered into the sovereign space of Pakistan and raised a lot eyebrows with its precision at which attacks were carried out.
