Around 170 Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists were killed in the air strike conducted by Indian Air Force in Pakistan’s Balakot, according to foreign media. As per the report by Italian journalist Francesca Marino, the airstrike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed training camp in Balakot led to the death of 130-170 JeM recruits.
Speaking to India Today TV, journalist slammed Pakistan of lying as they denied no damage was done and no casualties took place in air strike.
“Despite Pakistan’s efforts to deceive the world on the Indian airstrikes on the Jaish-e-Muhammad camp, small details of what happened in Balakot in the wee hours of February 26 and thereafter have kept trickling in from my source,” Italian journalist Francesca Marino wrote in her report.
The journalist reports quoting sources that while the Indian Air Force bombed the JeM camp at 3.30 am on February 26, 2019, a unit of the Pakistan Army reached the spot at around 6 am. The Pakistan Army unit came from their camp in Shinkiari, located some 20 kilometres away.
Soon after the strike, Pakistan army quickly took the injured to Harkat-ul-Mujahideen (HuM) camp in Shinkiari, where Pakistan Army doctors were brought in for treatment. While some of the terrorists died during treatment.
