Prime Minister Narendra Modi had cleared the decision to strike back at terror camps in Pakistan and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir within 24 hours of the Pulwama attack which claimed the lives of over 40 CRPF personnel.
A plan to target the camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad across the Line of Control (LoC) was hatched within 24 hours of the Pulwama terror attack, top sources told Zee Media on Tuesday.

The attack was launched by 12 Mirage fighters which dropped 1000 kilogramme bombs on terror camps across the LoC at 3:30 am on February 26, IAF sources said.
