New Delhi: Amid talks of Indian Air Force entering the Pakistan soil and struck terror launch pads in Balahkot, two Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in an encounter in Jammu & Kashmir's Shopian today morning. The fresh encounter took place a day after the Indian fighter jets destroyed the biggest terror camp of the Jaish, killing 200-300 terrorists.
Security forces launched a search operation in Shopian after getting information about the presence of terrorists, later turned out to an encounter when the terrorists started firing towards the security forces.
The recent encounter comes a day after India launched an airstrike intended to demolish terror launch pads operating inside the Pakistan territory.
India carried out air strikes on terror camps, occupied by the Jaish-e-Mohammed across the Line of Control, around 3.30 yesterday morning. National News agency ANI reported that 12 Mirage 2000 Fighter jets of the Indian Air Force dropped 1,000 kg bombs on terror camps.
The early morning air strike is a retaliation to the deadliest attack in Pulwama where the Pakistani based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed had killed 40 CRPF men at Pulwama in Jammu & Kashmir.
ANI also reported that the bombs were dropped exactly on the targeted areas, especially in the control room of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, and destroyed it completely.
The air strikes by the Indian Air Force comes after two weeks of the Pulwama terror attack where 40 CFPF men were killed when a suicide bomber in a car rammed into the buses which were carrying the soldiers. The attack was executed and implemented by the Jaish, a terror outfit headed by Masood Azhar.
