In the so early of this morning, Mirage-2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force introduced air strikes at camps of terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). The government of India has guaranteed the armed forces action against the terrorists. “In an intelligence lead operation in the early hours today, India hit the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot. In such a operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commander & Jihadis were eliminated,” claimed Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale in a media briefing. The affirmation from the government is that the Indian Air Force attacked a terrorist training camp in Balakot. This is around 50 miles inside the Pakistani territory of the PoK.
You are able to do searches these locations on the Google Maps app, most of them are in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. Fire up Google Maps on your phone (free app for Android and iPhones) or the web browser on your desktop or mobile, and search for Balakot. You can be shown numerous Balakot locations, including one in Madhya Pradesh and one in Uttarakhand. There can also be a Bala Kote in Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir. You should not confuse the Balakot in PoK with the ones which are usually located in these Indian states. In spite of this, when we make sure to estimate the distance between Balakot in PoK and Srinagar, Google Maps tends to stumble.
Balakot is a town in Mansehra District in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Balakot is just one of the Jaish-e-Mohammed’s oldest training camps, which contains found mention in several past situations of terrorism in India and abroad. There seemed to be limited physical infrastructure at the base—witnesses have discussed a main tin-roof shed, a small mosque and several bunker-style houses.
Previously records recommended that the Indian Air Force also hit another terrorist camp in Muzaffarabad, and also in Chakoti. Muzaffarabad is approximately 40 kilometers from Balakot, in accordance with Google Maps. Chakoti is 57 kilometers from Muzaffarabad. Earlier this week, the bus services between Srinagar, the capital of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and Muzaffarabad had restarted, after it was stopped after the February 14 terrorist attack on the CRPF convoy by a Jaish terrorist.
