#IndiaStrikesBack: Bollywood Salute The Indian Air Force

What a morning it was! We woke up to the news that the Indian Air Force (IAF) has carried out a surgical air strike across terror camps near the Line of Control. 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets from the Indian camp took to the skies and dropped 1000 kilos of bombs, destroying the JeM terror camps. 

Why did this air strike happen?
The air attacks came following the Pulwama terror attacks which shook the nation on February 14. A terror group led by Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) attack a CRPF convoy in Pulwama leading to the martyrdom of 40 brave jawans. 
Some details about the strike

12 Mirage 2000 jets hit Balakot, Muzaffarabad at 3:45 am and the strike went on till 3:53 am. Hitting Balakot is a historic high for IAF because it not only crossed the LoC but the entire Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and then hit the target inside Khyber Pakhtukhwa. 

Who are JeM?
JeM
is a terror group that have been active in Pakistan for the last two decades. It is led by Masood Azhar with its headquarters in Bahawalpur. 

This is said to be the first cross-border air strike India has carried out in nearly five decades. 

Following this strike, several celebrities took to Twitter to salute the efforts of the Indian Air Force. Here’s what some celebs tweeted
