Pakistan says ‘will respond’ to Indian air raids on its territory

Pakistan says it reserves the right to respond to Indian air raids on its territory early on Tuesday morning and has called a meeting of its top nuclear command authority, as tensions peak between the South Asian neighbours. Indian air attacks struck near the northern Pakistani village of Jaba, witnesses and the Pakistani military said, located about 10km west of the border with Pakistan-administered Kashmir, and 60km from the Line of Control that divides Indian and Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
India’s foreign secretary said the “non-military pre-emptive action” targeted a training camp for armed group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which claimed a suicide attack earlier this month that killed 42 Indian security forces personnel and brought tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbours to a boil.
