If things went as per plans, not less than 200 terrorists were 'eliminated in Balakot'

If things went as per plans, not less than 200 terrorists were 'eliminated in Balakot'

New Delhi, Feb 26(UNI) It is not without good reason that the aerial strike conducted by Air Force under the leadership of western command has left Pakistan rattled as India struck the biggest
training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot in early hours of Tuesday.
The laser guided bombs bombarded on the camp have probably left a huge casualty in the enemy camp and at least 150-200 militants are likely to have been eliminated, sources said.
It is the gravity of such huge impact that a panic-driven Pakistan Army itself had to give out the first information about the strike 'ostensibly to seek international sympathy.'
Therefore, it was not surprising that Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi spoke to his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi and apprised him about the attack.
According to sources, the terrorists were given intensive training of arms and during the time of attack at around 3 AM on Tuesday, at least 200 terrorists and the trainers were supposed to have been in the camps which are at hilltop.
One estimate said it may not be wrong to say that the Balakot camp had probably trained few thousands of terrorists over the years. The Government had information and proper intelligence inputs about the presence of the camps and the activities there for quite sometime and there was also 'credible intelligence' that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of
India.
In fact, briefing reporters, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale made Government's intention clear that the strike had to be carried out on a real time basis as there was imminent danger and 'a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary.'
Sources also said comparatively, the Balakot hub was considered a safe camp for quite sometime
and JeM chief Masood Azhar's son Abdullah also took extensive training in this camp in December 2017.
