External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has called an all-party meeting to brief opposition leaders about the IAF attack on Tuesday on the biggest training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), which had claimed responsibility for the February 14 Pulwama terror attack.

The meeting will be held at 5 p.m.

The Indian Air Force fighter jets carried out pre-dawn air strikes on terror camps across the Line Control in the Pakistani side, 12 days after Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group carried out the dastardly Pulwama attack in Kashmir.

Forty CRPF personnel were killed and five injured on February 14 in one of the deadliest terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into their bus in Pulwama district in Jammu and Kashmir

The bus was part of a convoy of 78 vehicles carrying Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel from Jammu to Srinagar. More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Valley, were travelling in the convoy.

The attack was the worst-ever attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in the state in1989.
