Pakistan finally accepted that on 26 February 2019, 300 terrorists were killed in Balakot Airstrike. Former Pakistan diplomat Aga Hilali confessed this in a LIVE TV debate.
Aga Hilali favors the Pakistani Army in the debate on TV channels. This confession from their side is considered a major failure of Pakistan. This is also because Pakistan has so far denied the death of anyone in the airstrike.
‘India acts like a war crossing the international border’
Aga Hilali was speaking during a debate on the Pakistani Urdu channel. He said, ‘India crossed the international border and acted as a war. Balakot Airstrike killed at least 300 people. Our goal was different from theirs. We targeted their top officials. Our move was completely legal, as he was an army man. We said at the time that there were no casualties in this action. Now we have told them that whatever they do, we will only answer them.
India did an airstrike after the Pulwama attack
On 14 February 2019, there was a terrorist attack on a convoy of CRPF personnel in Pulwama. 40 soldiers were killed in it. In response to this, the Indian Air Force conducted an airstrike on 26 February in Balakot, Pakistan-occupied Bale Kashmir (POK). It bombed Jaish’s hideout, killing around 300 terrorists.
Pakistani MP said fearfully – India will attack
Prior to Hilali, Pakistan Muslim League leader Ayaz Sadiq has also given a statement in Parliament on the matter. Sadiq referred to the statement of Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood after the incident during the Balakot Airstrike in the country’s National Assembly in October 2020. He told, ‘Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had said in an important meeting that if Pakistan did not release India’s Wing Commander Abhinandan Vardhaman, then India would attack Pakistan at 9 pm. When Qureshi was giving this information in the meeting of the leaders of the parliamentary party, then Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa was shivering.
