#Breaking - Some defense sources report #Indian air strikes across the Line of Control in Muzafarabad, #Pakistan. Indian air force briefing expected later today. Pakistan said Indian jets dropped their payloads & "fled". More confirmation of details needed.
There are also reports of dual, air and ground Indian strikes in Pakistan occupied Jammu and Kashmir. No official word yet. Waiting for updates. Stay tuned.
There are also reports that 2 Pakistani JF-17s fighter jets have been shot down.
The Pakistani military claims that Indian air force violated the line of control, Pakistan's air force reacted immediately & IAF fighter jets were forced to go back. Indian side yet to respond on Pakistan's claim of IAF violation at LOC.
#India's @news24tvchannel has reported Indian air force strikes on #Pakistan and that a briefing is expected some time later today.
#India's @news24tvchannel reported these strikes from very reliable sources & claimed they knew of it for 3 hours already, but held reporting until now. Terror camps in Pak destroyed.
Earlier, I had seen reports of Indian AWACS aircraft flying near the area, but I've chosen not to report it until more info was available about possible military action, but now the picture is definitely clear about military action.
Sources say that at 3:30 am, local India's time, Indian air force Mirage 2000 aircraft performed air strikes on Pakistan based terrorist camps using 1000 pound bombs.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Now reports come that 12 Indian air force Mirage 2000 fighter jets performed deep strikes into #Pakistan. The Mirage 2000 jets were supported by AWACS aircraft.
Here are some pictures of Indian air force Mirage 2000 jets, the aircraft involved in the air strikes in Pakistan. All targets were reported as fully destroyed with 1000 pound bombs. No Indian casualties.
#Indian Strikes Thread: There are reports of heavy shelling between India & Pakistan along the line of control (LOC). Unconfirmed reports of Indian ground attacks also, but not confirmed.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Here is a picture of an Indian air force, laser guided 1000 pound bomb as the ones used during the Indian air strikes in Pakistan.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Here is a picture of an #Indian air force Netra Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) aircraft in the IAF arsenal, this aircraft was used to monitor the air space over #Pakistan in support of the air strikes.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Pakistan sources report that Pakistani JF-17 aircraft launched retaliatory strikes into Indian positions on the line of control. No confirmation of this. Here is a pic of a Pakistani JF-17 aircraft
#Indian Strikes Thread: At least 3 locations have been reportedly hit deep into Pakistani territory: they are Balakot, Chakothi and Muzaffarabad terrorist camps. They were completely destroyed.
#Indian Strikes Thread: One thing is clear: monumental failure of the Pakistani military. The Indian air force penetrated deeply into Pakistan, bombed several locations & the aircraft went back to Indian territory without losses before Pakistani aircraft took to the air.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Reports that 200-300 Pakistani based terrorist were killed during the Indian Air Strikes in Pakistan.
#Indian Strikes Thread: High level security meeting at this moment as the Indian PM Narendra Modi is being briefed on the Indian air strikes.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Today, #India sent a strong, clear cut message to #Pakistan that the usual terrorist bleeding of India has painful consequences for Pakistan. There is a new reality on the ground. Pak is believed to want a way out from the developing conflict.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Emergency meeting at this moment in #Pakistan's Islamabad. Other than expected statements of "Indian aircraft chased out of Pak territory", etc, analysts believe Pak is looking for a face saving way out the situation.
#Indian Strikes Thread: I can't emphasize enough the fact that the Indian air force penetrated a heavily defended air space in Pakistan, bombed 3 targets and left without any loses. Impressive Indian military performance 👍💪🇮🇳💪👍
#Indian Strikes Thread: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in a high-level CCS meeting in New Delhi along with Union ministers @nsitharaman and @arunjaitley. #Pakistan denied any losses. Indian aircraft chased out it said, as expected.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Reports that the Indian air strikes lasted a total of 21 minutes. I have to say, that's an awful lot of time and again, no Indian losses. I expect that Indian electronic warfare equipment was key & had blinded Pakistani radars.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Reports that one location that was struck, Balkot in Manahera district of KPK province is 50 miles from the LoC. It's definitely a deep strike in Pakistan itself, not only in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
#Indian Strikes Thread: The Mirage 2000s that participated in the Indian strikes, took off from Ambala Air Force base.
#Indian Strikes Thread: #India's foreign secretary will give a briefing at 11:30 am Indian time about the Indian air strikes on #Pakistan.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Today, 12 days after the Pulwama terrorist attack, 12 Mirage 2000 Indian air force fighter jets retaliated & struck multiple terrorist targets in Pakistan; some near the LoC, some deep inside Pak. Today was "Karma" payback. Good job #India 👍💪🇮🇳💪👍
#Indian Strikes Thread: As expected from Pak: Pakistan Confirms IAF Jets Crossed Line of Control, but claims bombs did zero damage. The Indian aircraft only managed to fly three-four miles inside Pakistani airspace and faced "timely response from the Pakistan Air Force".
#Indian Strikes Thread: Sources say that Pakistani F16s were scrambled to retaliate against IAF Mirage 2000s but turned back due to the size of the Indian formation. The Western Air Command coordinated the operation.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Now we see #Indian attempts to play down the significance of the strikes by saying that aircraft didn't have to go deep into Pak because they used stand off weapons, but no, laser guided bombs don't go for 50 miles, sorry, it was a DEEP STRIKE.
#Indian Strikes Thread: #India is trying to downplay things with such statements in order to give Pakistan an easier face saving way out of the situation. We'll have to see if Pak decides to escalate or not.

#Indian Strikes Thread: A) Here is how the air strikes on Pakistan were launched:
12 Mirage 2000 aircraft took off from Gwalior air base in batches.
The Mirage jets were armed 500/1000lb laser-guided bombs.
The Mirage 2000 jets were fitted with Israeli litening targetting pods.
#Indian Strikes Thread: B) An IAF early warning jet took off from Bhatinda.
Simultaneously, an IAF mid-air refuelling tanker took off from Agra.
Another, IAF Heron Surveillance also accompanied the team.
The Mirage 2000 pilots conducted final checks on the targets.
#Indian Strikes Thread: C) They were then cleared from the command centre to proceed.
The Mirage 2000 jets flew across LoC at low level.
The pilots of the Mirage 2000 jets used laser pods to 'paint' targets.
Finally, the Mirage 2000 jets dropped their payload of bombs.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Indian official briefing about the strikes going on at this moment. India had to strike Pak since they provided safe heavens and training to terrorists. High terrorist casualties at the Balakot camp.

#Indian Strikes Thread: #India is saying that this was a preemptive, non military strike on terror targets, therefore, this is not an act of war against #Pakistan. India is clearly giving way to Pakistan to save face and not escalate.

#Indian Strikes Thread: 5 Indian Air Force Mirage 2000 jets crossed over the Line of Control & went at least 10 km inside Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, before firing multiple Spice-2000 precision-guided bombs #IndiaStrikesBack #Surgicalstrike2 theprint.in/defence/iafs-b…
#Indian Strikes Thread: Sources told ThePrint that the 5 Mirage 2000s were backed up by more Mirages + a some Sukhoi Su-30 MKIs, a mid-air refueller & 2 Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS). The strike began at 3:45 am & lasted 21 minutes #IndiaStrikesBack #Surgicalstrike2
#Indian Strikes Thread: The initial plan was not to cross the LoC but to fire the 1 ton bombs from Indian air space since they have a range of 100 km. “However, the wind was very strong from west to east, so the 5 fighters crossed over the LoC” #IndiaStrikesBack #Surgicalstrike2
#Indian Strikes Thread: The Israeli bombs were pre-fed with GPS coordinates & image of the camp, which featured 6 barracks of at least 2-3 storeys high. The Spice 2000 uses a Digital Seen Matching Area Correlator tech which automatically matches the target with the pre-fed image.
#Indian Strikes Thread: Sources said that the precision-guided bombs can be used day or night & also have anti-GPS jammer, which means that the GPS homing technology cannot be jammed by the enemy. #IndiaStrikesBack #Surgicalstrike2

#Indian Strikes Thread: Many claims. Pak shows an alleged captured Indian pilot. India says no planes/pilots lost. Nothing can be confirmed. Need to consider that when governments are trying to decide a course of action, they downplay things in the meantime. #IndiaStrikesBack
#Indian Strikes Thread: Info about the Indian pilot captured by Pakistan. If this is confirmed, then some officials need to explain the statements of no pilots/planes unaccounted for. #IndiaStrikesBack

#Indian Strikes Thread: The official Indian government statement about today's actions: #IndiaStrikesBack
#Indian Strikes Thread: My feel of the situation. Pak needed to do something in order to have something to show & spin. Today they have it & now they want deescalation. India has been downplaying things since yesterday hoping for deescalation, but today...... #IndiaStrikesBack
#Indian Strikes Thread: Today's Pak attacks on the Indian military may have changed India's calculus. The big decision now is to either retaliate against Pak & risk further escalation or let things cool down. Not sure which way is going. #IndiaStrikesBack
#Indian Strikes Thread: #India just reported that the MI-17 helicopter that crashed today caused 6 military personnel deaths and one civilian. #IndiaStrikesBack

#Indian Strikes Thread: I'm hearing that as Pak launched a direct attack on India's military today, that's an act of war that India feels compelled to have to retaliate against. Yesterday, India went out of its way to emphasize that it was not a military attack. #IndiaStrikesBack
#Indian Strikes Thread: It's a very delicate situation right now. There are good reasons for India to escalate as retaliation for today's attacks, but not everybody wants that & there is international pressure to deescalate. We'll have to see what gives. #IndiaStrikesBack
