On February 14, 2019, a terrorist attack in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, killed 40 Indian security personnel. The attack was carried out by Pakistan-based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed. India vowed to retaliate and conducted 'Operation Bandar' on February 26, 2019.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) carried out a successful air strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed training camp in Balakot, Pakistan, destroying it completely. The operation was carried out in the early hours of the morning and the IAF used Mirage 2000 fighter jets to drop precision-guided bombs on the camp.
The attack was a significant success for India as it was the first time that the IAF crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and carried out an air strike in Pakistan. The attack sent a strong message to Pakistan that India will not tolerate terrorism.
The operation was planned and executed meticulously, and the IAF demonstrated its capability to strike deep inside Pakistan. The Indian government also made it clear that the operation was not a military action against Pakistan but a strike against terrorists who were planning more attacks on India.
The anniversary of the Pulwama attack is a reminder of the sacrifice made by the security personnel who lost their lives. 'Operation Bandar' serves as a tribute to them and a message to those who intend to harm India.
