How true the speculations of JeM chief Masood Azhar death are?

Where, opposition parties in India are putting pressure on ruling party to show the reality of the strike and damage caused by IAF's precision bombing on the JeM, an audio message issued by a senior leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed appears to clear the fact that Indian jets hit the Pakistan-based terrorist training camps in Balakot on Monday.

New Delhi: Amid the contradictory and abstruse statements released by the government of Pakistan and India over IAF's strike on training camps of Jaish-e-Mohammed, the speculations of JeM chief Masood Azhar's death are growing.

According to a report the JeM chief, who took the responsibility of suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama, has been killed in the bombardment by Indian Air Force in Balakot, is going viral, however, there was no confirmation from any authoritative sources.

Where, opposition parties in India are putting pressure on ruling party to show the reality of the strike and damage caused by IAF's precision bombing on the JeM, an audio message issued by a senior leader of Jaish-e-Mohammed appears to clear the fact that Indian jets hit the Pakistan-based terrorist training camps in Balakot on Monday.

In this audio message, which seems to bear the voice of Maulana Ammar (who has been identified as the brother of JeM founder Masood Azhar), could clearly be heard urging people to avenge the strike on their training camps by IAF.

Making the scenario more obscure, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi released a statement saying that the Indian operation hit only a patch of trees, whereas, electronic evidence gathered by radar images was sufficient to establish the damage caused to the structures.

Mr. Shah in an media interview had also conceded that terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad chief, Masood Azhar is in Pakistan and is “unwell to an extent that he cannot leave his house.”

Shah Mahmood had said, “Azhar is in Pakistan. According to my information, he is very unwell. He is unwell to the extent that he can’t leave his house, because he’s really unwell.”

According to sources at the site of the bombings, four large craters could be seen, and up to 15 pine trees were brought down by the blasts.

The buildings were targeted by the IAF’s highly accurate, jammer-proof Israeli bombs ( S-2000 PGM), which are not meant to destroy the building but only to cause damage after they enter a building.
