In a big embarrassment for India, International media exposes Indian claims of fake surgical strike
ISLAMABAD - The British news agency Reuters says high-resolution satellite images show buildings which India claimed its warplanes had hit in Balakot killing a large number of militants still standing at the site.
The images produced by Planet Labs, a San Francisco-based private satellite operator has shown at least six buildings on the site six days after the airstrike.
The image is virtually unchanged from an April 2018 satellite photo of the facility.
There are no discernible holes in the roofs of buildings, no signs of blown-out walls, displaced trees around the site or other signs of an aerial attack.
India’s foreign and defense ministries did not reply to emailed questions sent in the past few days seeking comment on what is shown in the satellite images and whether they undermine its official statements on the airstrikes.
