Pakistan Says Indian Aircraft 'Violated' Its Airspace

India Attacks Pakistan: Air Force Crosses Border, 'Bombs Terror Camp' In Balakot

The Indian foreign secretary reiterated New Delhi's calls on Pakistan to take action against militant groups in its territory.

Swaraj stressed during talks in China with her counterparts from Beijing and Moscow that "no military installations were targeted" in the air raid, and the target was selected to avoid civilian casualties.

Indian aircraft "released payload in haste. near Balakot", he wrote.

Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale said an air strike on a militant camp killed "a very large number" of fighters preparing an attack on India.

Bangladesh hopes that nuclear-armed India and Pakistan will immediately take measures to deescalate the tension.

"Indian aircrafts intruded from Muzafarabad sector", Pakistani military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Twitter early on Tuesday, referring to an area in the Pakistan-administered part of Kashmir.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi blamed Pakistan for the February 14 suicide attack in Kashmir - one of the deadliest in decades - and promised a "crushing response" in its wake.

"I vow that I will not let the country bow down", he said.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan dismissed India's account of the airstrike on a terrorist training camp as "self-serving, reckless and fictitious".

Islamabad has said it had nothing to do with the latest bombing in Kashmir, and has warned it will retaliate if attacked by India.

New Delhi blamed Islamabad, which denies having a role in the attack. He said there were no casualties and no damage.

Military planes could be heard over Srinagar, the capital of Indian-controlled Kashmir, throughout Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Pakistan Air Force is always vigilant, and always ready to face the challenge.

The military action follows a diplomatic offensive in which India says it is seeking to isolate Pakistan for its alleged support to militant groups.

NSC said Khan will "engage with global leadership to expose irresponsible Indian policy".

The Balakot-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp destroyed by the Indian Air Force was located on the bank of the Kunhar river in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan and was used for " battle inoculation", where the trainers were retired officers of the Pakistan Army, government sources said. Pakistan, however, said the aircraft had "released a payload" while escaping from the jets scrambled to intercept it, and claimed it caused no casualties.

Former president of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday strongly responded to India's violation of Pakistan's airspace in Muzaffarabad, and said Pakistan needed to formulate an effective strategy for retaliation to India. Since 1989, such groups have waged an insurgency to end Indian rule in Kashmir.

Bangladesh and other countries in this region can think of a concerted effort to diffuse the tension between India and Pakistan, Imtiaz suggested.
