IAF Air Strike: Sushma Swaraj chairs all-party meeting at Jawaharlal Nehru Bhawan
New Delhi, Feb 26: An all-party meet to brief Opposition on India's air strikes chaired by Union Minister Sushma Swaraj is underway at Jawahar Bhawan.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has briefed both President and Vice-President about the Indian Air Force strike at JeM terror camp in Balakot across LoC, reported news agency ANI quoting sources.
PM Modi also met with his top ministers in the cabinet committee on security at his home in Delhi after India carried out pre-dawn air strikes on terror camps across the Line of Control on Tuesday.
Twelve Mirage 2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force crossed the Line of Control around 3:30 am and dropped 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs on terror camps of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, completely destroying them.
India carried out the operation two weeks after 40 soldiers were killed in a terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama. A suicide bomber of the Jaish-e-Mohammed exploded a car full of bombs next to a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy.
The Jaish-e-Mohammed, which is led by Masood Azhar, had claimed responsibility for the February 14 attack.
