NEW DELHI: Senge Hasnan Sering, a US-based activist from Gilgit, has posted a six-year-old video claiming that 200 terrorists were killed in India Air Force airstrikes on Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camps in Balakot, Pakistan.
In the wee hours of February 26, IAF carried out massive anti-terror operations, dropping 1000-kg bombs on camps of dreaded terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

“I'm not sure how authentic this video is but Pakistan is definitely hiding something very important that has happened in Balakot,” Sering tells ANI.
“Pakistan continues to claim that the strike happened and it damaged the forest area and some farmland. But then there's no reason for Pakistan to cordon off the area for such a long time and not allow the international media to have an independent opinion on the situation there,” he adds.
Following the IAF strikes, Masood Azhar-led Jaish-e-Mohammed confirmed the strikes did take place at a site of madrassa but there were no casualties.
Eleven days after the ghastly Pulwama terror attack by a JeM suicide bomber which killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, the IAF launched a pre-dawn “pre-emptive non-military strike” targetting the terror camps. A large number of terrorists and top commanders were killed in the attack, the centre said in a press brief.
