Following Pulwama terror bombing, in which 40 CRPF troopers were killed on February 14, the Balakot airstrike was conducted by the Indian Air Force in the early morning hours of February 26 when the Indian warplanes crossed the de facto border in the disputed region of Kashmir and dropped bombs in the vicinity of the town of Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan.
