Indian statement “Based on very credible and specific information which we received yesterday that some terrorist teams had positioned themselves at launch pads along the LoC… the Indian army conducted surgical strikes last night at these launch pads. Credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country… In the face of imminent danger, a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary.

In an intelligence led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot.

Indian line “The operations aimed at neutralizing the terrorists have since ceased. We do not have any plans for continuation of further operations.” “…this non-military preemptive action was specifically targeted at the JeM camp.”
