Former India cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Virender Sehwag welcomed the air strikes carried out by fighter jets of the Indian Air Force early  morning on Tuesday.

Sehwag and Gambhir, both of whom have been vocal on the issue following the terror attack in Pulwama, tweeted to let people know their reaction.

"The boys have played really well. #SudharJaaoWarnaSudhaarDenge #airstrike," tweeted Sehwag.

Combat jets of the Indian Air Force bombed terror camps at multiple locations across the Line of Control on the Pakistani side in a pre-dawn strike, 12 days after the Pakistan-based terror group, Jaish-e-Mohammed carried, out the Pulwama attack in Kashmir, government sources said. 

They said the Mirage 2000 fighter jets pounded JeM terror camps in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakoti in the well-planned strike, destroying the camps.

Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman briefed Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the operation. 

Hours later, Prime Minister Modi chaired a meeting of Cabinet Committee on Security which was attended by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Sitharaman.

The sources said significant damage has been inflicted on the ground on the Pakistani side.

A source indicated that the operation was carried out between 3:50 AM and 4:05 AM.
