On 26 February 2019. the Indian Air Force (IAF) dropped 1000 Kg bombs in Pakistan, around 3:30 am. As a result, terrorist launchpads in Balakot, Chakothi and Muzaffarabad were destroyed. It is assumed that as many as 350 – 400 terrorists were killed, including family members of the founder and leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed – Masood Azhar.
This airstrike was done using IAF’s Mirage 2000. It is a multi-role fighter jet which can drop missiles from a range and with a very high accuracy. In fact, it has a 100% success rate!
This air strike, which is also being called as Surgical Strike 2.0 is seen as a response to the February 14 Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF personnel died. But apart from taking revenge, the air strike also displayed its military prowess. The perpetrators got a taste of India’s military strength.
