Balakot Strikes Prevented Pakistan from Planning Pulwama Like Attacks, Says Defence Minister Rajnath Singh


India carried out Balakot strikes across the border to destroy terror launch pads before Pulwama-like attack could be planned by Pakistan, which has been continuously keeping a “sinister eye” on Jammu and Kashmir, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said Wednesday.

In a message to the armed forces on the eve of the Independence Day, Singh also said that government was working “tirelessly” to achieve synergy and “jointness” among the three services. “Our neighbouring country is continuously keeping a sinister eye on J&K. It sends terrorists into our territory and disturbs peace in the Valley,” he said.

“On February 14, 40 brave jawans of CRPF were martyred in Pulwama in a suicide attack.Our Armed Forces hit back by destroying the terror launch pads with air strikes across the border in Pakistan before it could plan another Pulwama-like attack,” he said. Read More
