Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today lauded the Indian Air Force (IAF) for carrying out air strikes in Pakistan.
“Salute the #IndianAirForce for pre-dawn air strikes on terror camps in defence of our Nation. #JaiHind,” tweeted Patnaik.
The IAF on Tuesday carried out pre-dawn air strikes on terror launch pads inside Pakistan and targeted terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
The air strike comes amid heightened tension between India and Pakistan following the February 14 suicide attack by Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group in Kashmir’s Pulwama district that killed 40 CRPF soldiers.
