A former Pakistani diplomat Agha Hilaly admitted on a news television show that 300 terrorists had died in the Balakot airstrike on February 26, 2019.

New Delhi [India], January 9: In a humiliating improvement for Pakistan, a previous Pakistani ambassador Agha Hilaly conceded on a news TV program that 300 psychological militants had passed on in the Balakot airstrike on February 26, 2019.

The strike was in light of the dread assault in Pulwama in which 40 CRPF staff lost their lives. Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) guaranteed the obligation regarding the February 14 assault, which has been generally denounced by the worldwide network. 

"India crossed the worldwide boundary and did a demonstration of battle where in any event 300 were accounted for dead. Our objective was unique in relation to theirs. We focused on their central leadership. That was our authentic objective since they are men of the military. We subliminally acknowledged that a careful strike - a restricted activity - didn't bring about any setback. Presently we have subliminally revealed to them that, whatever they will do, we'll do just that amount and won't heighten," said Agha Hilaly.
