Surgical Strikes 2.0 LIVE Updates : What does Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti has to say ?

Surgical Strikes 2.0 LIVE Updates: Twelve Indian Force Mirage-2000 jets crossed the Line of Control (LoC) early on Tuesday morning and destroyed terror camps of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed in Balakot. The air strike, which has been dubbed surgical strikes 2.0, comes two weeks after a terror attack on CRPF solidiers in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir.

Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale confirmed the air strike and said a large number of JeM terrorists, trainers and senior commanders were eliminated in largest JeM camp in Balakot. The camp was led by Maulana Yusuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghauri, brother-in-law of JeM Chief Masood Azhar. The government said the camp was located on a hilltop, deep in a forest, and far away from any civilian presence.

Former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah says that India has "entered a whole new paradigm" with the Balakote air strike. "The post Uri strike was to avenge our losses, Balakote was a 'preemptive strike to prevent an imminent JeM attack'. Totally new ballgame," he says.

Militancy situation worsening in Kashmir

J&K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti calls all party meeting tomorrow to discuss prevailing security situation after latest killing of Tamil youth in Kashmir by stone pelters. Mehbooba Mufti also met father of the 22-year-old Chennai boy who was killed by stone pelters in Narbal area of Central Kashmir. Will the fringe separatists now justify this cold blooded murder?

She also met Governor NN Vohra in Srinagar, discussed matters relating to counter-terrorist operations, incidents of stone pelting, the death of a tourist including others. Also discussed issues relating to PM's forthcoming visit to Ladakh, Kashmir & Jammu regions.

According to a story published in Al Jazeera , Kashmir is likely to become like Gaza. India is one of Israel's biggest arms exports clients, spending about $10bn over the past decade. Indian police forces have been receiving training in Israel for "anti-terror" operations, which Israeli conducts against Palestinians. The article compares India with Israel and Kashmir with Gaza. Unfortunately the situation is worsening in Kashmir.
