He stressed on Pakistan's stance following Pulwama attack in IOK, and said "Pakistan had nothing to gain from Pulwama attack" and stated that the person responsible for the suicide bombing was a local who grew exhausted of India's highhandedness in the valley. Terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed, which is based in Bahawalpur in Pakistani Punjab, had immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. It was the deadliest attack on Indian forces in Kashmir for decades.

"I have no information", an Indian defense spokesman said.

India said air force jets hit a training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), the militant group that claimed credit for a February 14 suicide bombing attack that killed Indian paramilitary police in Kashmir, a mountainous region also claimed by neighboring Pakistan. "No infrastructure got hit, no casualties", he said following an uproar in Pakistan about Indian jets flying deep into its territory.

The air strikes, which India says killed many militants, will escalate military tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals.

In the Balakot camp, the terrorists were imparted the advanced "Daura-e-Khaas" training in weapons, explosives and field tactics, attack on convoys of security forces, planting and making of IEDs, suicide bombing, rigging vehicles for suicide attacks and survival tactics in high altitudes and extreme-stress situations, they said.

Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Keshav Gokhale called the strike a "non-military pre-emptive action, specifically targeted at the Jaish-e-Muhammad camp".

Delhi has yet to respond to the statement but sources told an Indian news agency that 12 fighter jets had crossed into Pakistani territory and destroyed a militant training camp.

He asked the Indian leadership to "rethink its war strategy" and warned that if India initiated a war, then Pakistan would hoist its flag in New Delhi, Geo News reported.

The reaction may be a sign that support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi is surging months before a general election, pollsters said.

Hours after India undertook a non-military preemptive strike in Balakot, foreign nations have urged India and Pakistan to maintain good relations for peace in South Asia.

Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah congratulated the Indian Air Force.

India and Pakistan have fought two of their three full-fledged wars over Kashmir since their partition during independence from Britain in 1947.
