	 		India strikes inside Pakistan after deadly Kashmir attack				Feb 26 2019

In Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan called an emergency meeting of his national security committee Tuesday, after which his office released a statement saying, "Once again [the] Indian government has resorted to a self serving, reckless and fictitious claim".

JeM claimed responsibility for a February 14 suicide vehicle bombing that killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police.

Pakistan's military spokesman, Major General Asif Ghafoor, said the Indian "aircrafts" crossed into the Muzafarabad sector of Kashmir, which is split between the two countries but claimed by each in its entirety.

Pakistan said earlier that Indian aircraft crossed into its territory and dropped bombs "in haste" near Balakot, on the edge of Pakistani-ruled Kashmir.

No casualties or damage occurred, the military spokesperson had added.

The military spokesman also tweeted images of what he said was the Indian payload, showing what appeared to be pieces of metal and displaced soil in a heavily forested area.

"Acting on intelligence, India early today stuck the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot", he said.

He did not provide further information on the location, and whether it was a town of that name in Pakistani-administered Kashmir or further into its territory.

India and Pakistan have fought two wars and countless skirmishes over Kashmir, the Himalayan region claimed in full by both nuclear-armed rivals.

In his new book, "In The Ring and On Its Feet - Pakistan Air Force in the 1971 Indo-Pak war", Pakistan's premier military aviation historian Air Commodore M Kaiser Tufail (retd.) has stated that IAF Hunters belonging to 20 Squadron destroyed 5 PAF F-86 Sabres on the ground in Murid.

Pakistani Kashmiris burn a representation of the Indian flag to denounce the recent killings by Indian forces.

The incursion could have been in retaliation for a deadly February 14 suicide bombing in India's half of Kashmir that killed at least 40 troops. Modi, who is expected to call an election in April, had threatened a "jaw-breaking" response.

Although it has been described as a surgical strike, it's not.

During the meeting, he said, "I have already said that I don't want to mislead the public".

He said: "Credible intelligence was received that the JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country" and training militants for this objective. But Pakistan has denied any involvement in the bombing, which it says was planned and executed "indigenously".

They stressed that New Delhi and Islamabad should immediately deescalate the mounting tension by holding alks and finding a solution to the crisis.

"If such actions continue, it can escalate into major conflict, which will not serve any goal but to plunge the region into serious crisis", he said. Kejriwal too took to Twitter to state: "I salute the bravery of Indian Air Force pilots who have made us proud by striking terror targets in Pakistan".

There was no immediate explanation for the differing accounts, although India and Pakistan routinely contradict one another. The strikes took place At 03: 30 hours on 26th February, 2019, across the LoC and lasted for over 20 minutes.

The militant groups are fighting for either Kashmir's independence or its merger with Pakistan.
