Reports of Indian Air Force striking targets in Pakistan
Strong reports of IAF strikes on Pak targets in the early hours of the morning. Crucial for official reactions. Pak also confirms we hit.

I’m guessing this is related to the terrorist attack on Kashmir earlier this month. (But that’s just me speculating and nothing more than that.)
More robust news coverage here.
Pakistan army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor on Tuesday has alleged that the Indian Air Force (IAF) had violated the Line of Control (LoC).
In a tweet, Ghafoor claimed, “Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircrafts gone back. Details to follow.”
Pakistan’s claim came amid heightened tension between India and Pakistan after the February 14 attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad that killed at least 40 CRPF soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
On Monday, top Pakistan Army official had said that his country’s armed forces are “fully prepared” for a befitting response to “any Indian aggression or misadventure”.
