The strikes were carried out at Muzaffarabad, Chakoti and Balakot - the terror hub in Pakistan.
Balakot, a town in Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, is about 50km from the Line of Control and known among the intelligence agencies as "epicentre of jihad". It and has been on the radar of American forces for a long time.
Analysts allege that many Pakistan-based terror groups have their base and training camps in the area. Terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed chose Balakot for its base after Taliban were routed in the year 2001. Jaish-supported Al-Rehman Trust is also active in the area, according to intelligence agencies.
