New Delhi, February 26: In a major breakthrough, the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Tuesday launched surgical strike-2 on the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camps in Pakistan. At least 200-300 terrorists have reportedly been killed in the attack by IAF. Earlier, Pakistani Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the Indian Air Force (IAF) aircraft violated Line of Control (LoC) and entered Muzaffarabad in Pakistan. However, the major said that the Indian aircrafts went back after the Pakistan Air Force immediately reacted. Curiously, the tweet by the Pakistani major ended with more "details to follow."

According to details by IAF Sources, as many as 12 Mirage 2000 jets took part in the operation that dropped 1000 Kg bombs on terror camps across LOC, thus completely destroying it. The strike comes after reports of ceasefire violation from Pakistan dominated news headlines for the past three days and the dastardly attack on the Indian CRPF jawans in which as many as 40 CRPF personnel were martyred and over a dozen seriously injured.
