India's surgical strike against Pakistan: Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Vivek Oberoi laud IAF operation

Early on Tuesday, ANI reported that the Indian Air Force carried out a surgical strike with 12 Mirage 2000 jets. It was an operation to drop 1,000-kilogram bombs on what were reportedly terrorist launchpads across the Line of Control. The operation has allegedly led to the "complete destruction" of the terrorist camp in Balakot sector of Pakistan.

The operation comes amid heightened tension between India and Pakistan after the 14 February suicide bombing attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district, which killed 40 troopers.

Reactions applauding the efforts of IAF Pilots are doing rounds on the internet. Bollywood celebrities also took to social media and praised the IAF for their operation.

Ajay Devgn, who is a co-producer of Total Dhamaal, condemned the Puwlama terror attack and withdrew the release of his film from Pakistan. He appreciated the efforts of IAF Pilots and used strong words to express his sentiments.

Abhishek Bachchan and Sonakshi Sinha also praised the operation in precise yet clear words.


Anupam Kher took the opportunity to appreciate Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
