Two weeks after the Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir, India on Tuesday woke up to the news of Indian Air Force dropping around 1000 kg bombs on Jaish’s terrorist camps in Pakistan. As soon as the news came out, Bollywood lauded the IAF for giving a befitting reply to Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack.

After Ajay Devgn, Anupam Kher and Akshay Kumar, now Salman Khan has joined the bandwagon. The actor took to his Twitter account and wrote, ''Respect @IAF_MCC Indian Air Force... Jai ho !!!.''

In a brief statement issued to media, Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale spoke about ‘intelligence operation. “In an intelligence lead operation in the early hours today, India struck the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot. In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commander, and Jihadis were eliminated,” Gokhale said. 

''Credible information was received that JeM was attempting other attacks in the country. A pre-emptive strike became important. India struck the biggest camp of JeM in Balakot,'' Gokhale added.

On February 14, around 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a suicide bomber rammed into a convoy while moving from Jammu to Srinagar in Lethpora area of South Kashmir’s Pulwama district. Pakistan based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed the responsibility of the attack.
