#OpSwiftRetort air strikes - plausible scenarios:

1. PAF intended to strike Indian targets with aim to cause damage but missed due to inherent system limitation, poor execution or timely counter by IAF

2. Action was only to signal capability (stated reason)

3. Both

Analysis is complicated due to:

1. High disinformation level by Pak military establishment. Not just in present scenario but historically as well.

2. No official comment by #IndianArmy or #IndianAirForce on the efficacy of the strikes.

3. No anecdotes from history

@joe_sameer goes with scenario #1 basis high variation in targeting error. But then 2 different types of weapons and platforms were employed and both are relatively unknown as far as efficacy is concerned. Neither is PAF known for air strikes.

Prisoners of War (POW) are combatant who have fallen into the hands of the enemy or specific type of non-combatants to whom the Third Geneva Convention applies
In this case, the person is a POW as he falls within the definition provided by ICRC, as being a member of the armed forces of the State.

Balakot is very important for Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azar, it has a very interesting history, connecting the Taliban, fanatical wahabi ideology, Rae-bareli, valiant sikh warriors. This is where today’s #SurgicalStrike2 was carried out by the #IndianAirForce (1/10).
Syed Ahmed Barelvi, a deeply religious man, was born in Rae-bareli in 1786. He was an ardent admirer of Aurangzeb, & was perturbed by decline of the Mughals & rise of the infidel rulers - Marathas & Sikhs in India (2/10).
Syed Barelvi wanted to establish an Islamic caliphate in the Indian sub-continent, & hence decided to wage a Jihad against the then rulers of our land who weren’t followers of Islam. He is India’s early home grown terrorist (3/10).
