IAF: Pakistan scrambles jets over 'India airspace violation'

US India Join Forces Once Again to Beat Back China at the UN

He said Pakistan would respond "at a time and place of its choosing", noting that the country's military forces had been asked to be ready.

"We hope that both India and Pakistan can exercise restraint and adopt actions that will help stabilise the situation in the region and improve mutual relations", China's foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said.

In a press conference, Gokhale said India struck the biggest camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Balakot, which was headed by Maulana Yusuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghauri, brother-in-law of JeM chief Masood Azhar.

It is located about 50km (30 miles) from the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed region of Kashmir. Gokhale underlined that the action was not directed at the Pakistani military and described it as a "non-military preemptive action".

First, it takes pains to point out how the JeM has been responsible for multiple major terrorist incidents, including the suicide terror attack on CRPF jawans in Pulwama on 14 February, the Parliament attack in December 2001, and the attack the Pathankot airbase in January 2016.

The Indian Air Force hit Jabha Top, a forested hilltop where the Jaish-e-Mohammed had its camp.

The JeM control room was completely destroyed in the air strike, sources said.

"Credible intelligence was received that JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammed) was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this objective. No casualties or damage". The outer periphery is being guarded by the local police, while the second and third layers have been taken care of by special forces and the Pakistan Army.

NYC prosecutors preparing case against Manafort
That sentencing will come days after he's sentenced in Alexandria, Virginia, where jurors convicted him of tax- and bank fraud . Those contacts, prosecutors said in court, go "very much to the heart of what the special counsel's office is investigating".

Pulwama terror attack had led to nationwide outrage and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had vowed to punish those behind the attack.Entire world community had expressed solidarity with India after the attack. "I pledge on this soil, I will not let the country die, I will not let the country stop".

And although his ratings have dropped to their lowest-ever level, Mr Modi remains the most popular leader in the country, an India Today poll showed last month.

Pakistan's military has accused India's air force of violating its airspace, and says it scrambled jets in response.

Insurgents in Indian-controlled Kashmir have been demanding either outright independence or union with Pakistan.

The military action follows a diplomatic offensive in which India says it is seeking to isolate Pakistan for its alleged support to militant groups. Since 1989, such groups have waged an insurgency to end Indian rule in Kashmir.

Qureshi warned India not to challenge Pakistan and said "better sense should prevail in India", according to a statement cited by state-run Radio Pakistan.

Pakistan has outlawed Jaish-e-Mohammad and seized its properties in south Punjab's Bawahalpur area, including religious schools and mosques.

The Indian dossier on the Jaish also contains photographs of Yousuf Azhar, and of the vehicle used by him for doing his daily rounds of the hilly training grounds and firing ranges at Balakot.
