The cabinet committee on security met on Tuesday morning after reports of the Indian Air Force carried out pre-dawn airstrikes across the LoC. Though no official statement was made after the meeting, Union Minister for HRD Prakash Javdekar said ‘PM gave the Armed forces the freedom to attack. Indian Air Force has taken the necessary step for the security of the nation, entire country stands with forces.’

The air strikes reportedly destroyed major launch pads of the terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed, which was behind the February 14 Pulwama terror attacks. The initial reports suggest that the air strikes decimated Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Alpha 3 Control Rooms located in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
