Amid questions being raised if the IAF air strikes did achieve anything as they bombed inside Pakistan, heres some fresh evidence.
The IAF struck across the border in Balakot deep inside the Pakistani territory to avenge the Pulwama terror attack that claimed forty paramilitary personnel.
It is now learnt that Maulana Ammar, the younger brother of Jaish-e-Muhammed leader Masood Azhar, has in an audio confirmed that Indian fighter jets hit the JeM camp near Balakot, located in Khyber Pakhtunwa province of Pakistan.
In a recording available on social media, the voice identified as Maulana Ammar decries the bombing of the “markaz” (a centre of religious learning) and expresses anguish over India striking a centre where jihad was being taught rather than the headquarters of an official agency.
“The Indian aircraft did not attack any safe house of any agency. It did not bomb the headquarters of any agency. They bombed a centre where students were learning jihad for the assistance of Muslims of Kashmir,” he said.
The Pakistan establishment and sections of western media have raised doubts over whether the bombs did strike the target but the recording seems to suggest that Jaish leadership does acknowledge the hit.
