Early on February 26, IAF struck terrorist base camp in Pakistan’s Balakot. It also bombed Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir’s Chakothi and Muzaffarabad areas, destroying terror camp setups.
“The boys have played really well,” wrote Sehwag in a social media post. He cleverly chose a line which is regularly spoken by Pakistani cricketers after matches to applaud IAF efforts.

He further warned Pakistan about mending their ways or India will teach them a lesson.
Meanwhile, Gambhir, who is well known for his political statements, reacted with three simple words, “JAI HIND, IAF”.

The air strike, in which 12 Mirage 2000 jets took part, was carried around 3:30 am, sources said. The jets dropped 1000 Kg bombs on terror camps across the LoC, completely destroying them. Jaish-e-Mohammad control rooms were also destroyed in the strikes.
