Earlier in the day, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan convened an emergency meeting in response to the airstrike. He vowed to "engage with global leadership to expose irresponsible Indian policy".

Explaining the assault, India stated that it targeted an alleged terrorist base in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. According to reports, 12 Indian Air Force Mirage-2000 warplanes attacked the camp and completely destroyed it.

New Delhi has accused Islamabad of harbouring and protecting the terrorists who have claimed responsibility for an attack on a convoy of Indian security forces in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir on 14 February, which claimed the lives of 45 people.
