IAF hit terror targets in Balakot: Air Chief Marshal.


Indian Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa has dismissed the reports that the February 26 air-borne Balakot strike missed hitting the terror targets.

He participated in the ceremony to present the President’s Colours to the Sulur-based 5 Base Repair Depot near Coimbatore on Monday morning. Later, talking to the press, the Air Chief Marshal said Pakistan tried to retaliate only because the Indian Air Force operation has been successful.

The Air Chief Marshal said, the number of casualties due to such operations would be disclosed only by the Government, as the Air Force does not assess the exact numbers of casualties.He said, the Mig-21 Bison was used in the operation against intruding F-16 aircraft of Pakistan as they have been upgraded to the level of a 3.5 generation asset.
