External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, while addressing a gathering in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, said that no Pakistani civilians or soldiers were hurt during the air strikes in Pakistan’s Balakot. Swaraj said that the Indian Air Force, prior to the pre-emptive strikes, was given a free hand but also clear instructions to only target terrorists at the Jaish-e-Mohammad camp in Balakot. Swaraj credited Prime Minister Narendra Modi for punishing Pakistan and also isolating it on the global stage.
