Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

FATA is more than 200 Km from LoC and IB, it will be tough for IAF to reach that far without using stand-off weapons.

As Brahmos is yet to be inducted, other options maybe Kh-59 or other weapon in this series.

Other possibility would SF attack from Afghanistan but it would be very risky.
