Indian security forces have neutralised all Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists who were linked with the Pulwama terror attack on the CRPF convoy on February 14 in Jammu and Kashmir. This is continuing with the Modi government’s ‘zero tolerance towards terrorism’ policy.
Besides, the security forces have so far eliminated at least 66 Pakistan-backed terrorists in several counter-terrorism operations in parts of Jammu and Kashmir according to TOI. Of the 66 terrorists neutralised in Jammu and Kashmir this year, 27 of them belonged to the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).
Earlier, United States warned Pakistan to exercise restraint and to be in its limits amid escalated tensions between them and India. Pakistani soldiers have allegedly breached the ceasefire over 110 times along the LoC since January, as reported by PTI.
The confrontation increased after India claimed to have launched an air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Balakot, Pakistan, on February 26 in response to the February 14 Pulwama terror attack that martyred 40 CRPF personnel.
One more terror attack on India by Pakistan means they will be in huge trouble as the US handed a massive warning to Pakistan. The US also asked Pakistan’s capital Islamabad to take more “concrete and sustained” actions to put brakes on the country-backed terror groups including the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
Besides US, Israel has stepped forward to offer ‘unconditional support’ to India in defending itself, particularly against terrorism, highlighting that “there is no limit” to its assistance, an assurance that assumes significance surrounded by demands that the government should explore Israeli-type vengeance to terror strikes.
The Israeli military is well known for its precise and quick strikes. “Whatever India needs to defend itself there is no limit. We are here to help our close friend India to defend itself especially against terrorism because terrorism is the problem of the world and not only of India and Israel,” Malka told PTI in an interview, emphasising that the world should battle terrorism and eliminate it by collaborating, he said, “So, we help India, share our knowledge, share our technique because we really want to help our really important friend.”
