Pakistan today claimed "strikes across Line of Control from within Pakistani airspace" a day after Indian fighter jets destroyed a vast terror camp within Pakistan in a pre-dawn strike. "This was not a retaliation to continued Indian belligerence. Pakistan has therefore, taken strikes at non military target, avoiding human loss and collateral damage. Sole purpose being to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self defence. We have no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm. That is why we undertook the action with clear warning and in broad daylight," said the Pakistani statement.
