Serious escalation between India and Pakistan at the LoC in Kashmir

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi called an “emergency meeting” Tuesday after India carried out air strikes across the LoC and destroyed terror camps in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province reports the Pakstani “Economic Times”. Twelve Mirage 2000 Indian fighter jets struck major terrorist camps across the LoC and completely destroyed it by shelling 1,000 kg bombs. Pakistani F-16s were scrambled to retaliate against IAF fighters but turn back due to the size of the Indian formations says the “Times of India”.

Qureshi will meet Prime Minister Imran Khan after the meeting in which he will discuss the security situation with high-level officials. Sources here said that Qureshi summoned the “emergency meeting” at the Foreign Office for consultations.

The strikes involving several fighter jets of the Indian Air Force successfully destroyed camps belonging to Pakistan-based terror outfits in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Earlier, the Pakistan Army alleged that the Indian Air Force (IAF) violated the Line of Control (LoC) in Muzafarabad sector.
