Islamabad protests air strikes, calls India ‘threat to regional security’
Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry has summoned India’s acting High Commissioner to formally protest the night air raid on Pakistani territory. Islamabad rejects New Delhi’s justification for the attack.

Gaurav Ahluwalia was seen entering the ministry amid an ongoing flare-up between the two nuclear-armed neighbors. The Pakistani ministry condemned the Indian incursion and called the move “a threat to regional peace and stability” in a statement.

India said its warplanes targeted a terrorist camp and that the mission was necessary because the Pakistani government would not deal with the militants itself.

The incursion came almost two weeks after a suicide bombing attack against Indian police stationed in Kashmir. India said it was targeting a camp of the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which claimed responsibility for the attack.
