This strike comes 2 weeks after the Pulwama terror attack and the goal of it is to target those terror camps across the border, to render those camps useless. These terror camps act as a forward launching base for terrorists to send attacker, suicide bombers and weapons across the border and into the Kashmir region of India.
Pakistan has responded to these bombing runs and although Pakistan has totally dined the effectiveness of the bombing run, it was likely to be expected. Major General Asif Ghafoor in a tweet said the Bombing runs were ineffective.
