Balakot air strikes displayed India’s strong will to act against terror: Rajnath
New Delhi: The success of Balakot air strikes displayed India’s strong will to act against terrorism, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Friday.
“On the anniversary of Balakot Air Strikes, I salute the exceptional courage and diligence of the Indian Air Force. The success of Balakot strikes has shown India’s strong will to act against terrorism. We are proud of our Armed Forces who keep India safe and secure,” Singh tweeted.
“On this day in 2019, @IAF_MCC had made it clear the New India’s policy against terrorism by giving response to the Pulwama terror attack,” Home Minister Amit Shah tweeted.
“I remember the brave martyrs of Pulwama and salute the valour of the Air Force. Under the leadership of @narendramodi ji, security of the country and our soldiers is paramount,” he said.
The air strikes were undertaken days after 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in a suicide attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.
