Hindustan Times Executive Editor Shishir Gupta explains the rationale behind India’s strike at the biggest camp of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot early this morning. Sources have confirmed that the IAF dropped 1,000 pound bombs in a thickly-forested hilltop and eliminated a large number of terrorists. Gupta explains why the strikes were necessary for India’s self-defence and why Pakistan is unlikely to retaliate against the ‘pre-emptive strike’.
