The targets in Balakot were struck by twelve Mirage 2000s of the Indian Air Force (IAF) in an operation which began at 3.30 am.

Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale revealed in a press briefing that India attacked JeM’s biggest terrorist training camp, where many more fedayeen attackers were being trained for future attacks on India.

Gokhale asserted that a large number of terrorists, commanders, trainers and those trained for fedayeen attacks, had been neutralised. He also revealed that the attack was being run by JeM supremo Masood Azhar’s brother-in-law Maulana Yusuf Azhar.

He clarified that this was a non-military strike, and that all steps had been taken to avoid civilian operation during the operation; the target was located in a forested area on top of a hill, away from any populated settlements.
