The Government of India confirmed attacks by Indian Air Force (IAF) jets on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC) early on Tuesday. India said the attacks targeted the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) which claimed responsibility for the suicide terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14, martyring over 40 personnel.
The Pulwama terror attack has created a deep rift in various walks of the society and even the cricketing community is divided over the question of playing Pakistan in the ICC World Cup in England and Wales starting in May.
Post this flamboyant attack, the cricketing community has once again united and lauded the Indian Air Force army.
Here are the tweets:
The Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar took to the twitter and said, “Our niceness should never be comprehended as our weakness. I salute the IAF, Jai Hind”
