Terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed faces heavy loss after India’s air strike
February 28, 2019
On Tuesday, India gave a befitting reply to Pakistan operated terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed for Pulwama attack by destroying one of their biggest base camps in Pakistani soil. Reportedly, over 300 terrorists, including 12 main commanders were killed in the pre-dawn attack that took place at 3 am on Tuesday. Indian government and Indian Air Force were showered with appreciations from international counterparts for their latest act against terrorism. Reportedly, this is one of the biggest attacks against a terrorist group carried on by any country. The Jaish-e-Mohammed has faced the worst wrath after the attack. But the Pakistani government has denied any casualties in their soil. They are now targeting India to strike back. Diplomats and experts from across the world also pointed out that the strike was the right act.
Training facility at #Balakot was developed in 2000-2001, overseen by Saifur Rehman Saifi, who pioneered suicide bombings in Pakistan, fought with the Taliban in Afghanistan, and targeted religious minorities. Al Rahmat Trust (another Jaish-e-Mohammed front) also registered there-Dhruva Jaishankar, Fellow in Foreign Policy Studies at Brookings India, New Delhi
The government of India released images of Jaish-e-Mohammed's biggest camp atBalakot before its demolishing. There were five star facilities including air-conditioned rooms and swimming pools for terrorists. Almost 600 people could be accommodated inside the premises that were completely destroyed by the Indian Air Force.
But the Indian government has not yet released images of the demolished base camp which raises brows amongst many people.
"This Madrassa of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot was supposed to be destroyed by Modi's air strikes, but as Pakistani journalists independently confirm, it still stands on the top of the hill", tweeted Ashok Swain, Associate Professor and Director of the Programme of International Studies, Department of Peace and Conflict Research, Uppsala University, Sweden.
Jaish-e-Mohammed was founded by Masood Azhar in the early 2000's. He was left free by India in return for 300 passengers who were hijacked in an Indian Airlines flight by Azhar's brother. Azhar founded Jaish-e-Mohammed with its base in Pakistan. Their main aim is to make Kashmir part of Pakistan and then spread the message of Jihad across India.
