BALAKOT: Residents of Balakot, where India claimed to have carried out a strike early Tuesday, disputed reports of major destruction.

According to reports, one person was injured. Muhammad Ajmal, who visited the site, in a video clip released to BBC Urdu said: “We saw trees fallen down, one house damaged and four craters where the bombs had fallen."

Another area resident, Murad said no loss of life had taken place. “The stones of a mud house fell due to the noise of the explosions. Four or five trees have been broken at the site. The Indian media is just doing propaganda”.

Indian aircraft violated the LoC as they "intruded" from the Muzaffarabad sector and were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force, Pakistan military spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor said early Tuesday.
