IAF airstrike at Balakot camp slayed Pakistani soldiers too: Report

Residents of Balakot and police officials in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir caught admitting on tape that the Indian airstrikes also caused military casualties

A MEDIA report on Monday claimed that the Indian Air Force (IAF) strike at a Jaish camp in Balakot inside Pakistan on February 26 also killed at least four Pakistani soldiers besides damaging the camp infrastructure and killing militants. The ‘India Today’ report said that its “undercover reporters caught residents of Balakot and police officials” in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir “admitting on tape” that the Indian strikes also caused military casualties.

“In Balakot, near the JeM terror camp that the IAF bombed, mosque worker Mohammad Naeem told ‘India Today’ TV’s investigative reporters that several Pakistani soldiers were killed in the Indian airstrikes late last month,” the report said.

“Whatever I have seen or read, four or five people from the Pakistani Army lost their  lives,” the report quoted Naeem as saying.

“The team of reporters then contacted Rehman, a cleric from a mosque in another Balakot neighbourhood, who recounted the IAF bombing as ‘Qayamat ka manzar’ (a doomsday moment),” it further said. “He confirmed that the airstrikes left a building badly damaged,” it said.
