An Indian news agency, meanwhile, reported that Indian Air Force jets had attacked a "major terrorist camp" in the Pakistani-controlled part of Kashmir early on February 26.

Ahead of the meeting, Qureshi chaired an emergency consultative meeting at the Foreign Office where he said that Pakistan holds the "right to self-defence" and a "befitting response" to India.

A spokesman for India's Ministry of Defense said he had "no information" on the strikes.

Last week, cinemas in Lahore's cantonment areas had halted the screening of Indian films.

They also imposed a ban on Pakistani artistes working in the industry once again.

Earlier on Friday, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Asif Ghafoor addressed a press conference in Rawalpindi and asserted on a pattern of "staged" incidents in India and occupied Kashmir whenever Pakistan moves towards stability, and reiterated PM Imran Khan's proposal of talks to Delhi.

The reaction may be a sign that support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi is surging months before a general election, pollsters said.

There has been no official statement from India.

India said the strike was predicated by intelligence showing the terror group was planning more suicide attacks in India.

He said: "In this operation a very large number of Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and jihadis being trained were eliminated". This facility was headed by Maulana Yusuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghauri, who is the brother-in-law of JeM Chief Masood Azhar.

"Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot".

Modi has been under pressure to retaliate since the suicide auto bombing in Kashmir's Pulwama, which India alleges was orchestrated by Pakistan's intelligence agency, and tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbors have escalated in recent days. Though Foreign Secretary called it non-military action, it is a step I was expecting that the government will take a long time ago.

Balakot is about 7km over the ceasefire border known as the "line of control" based on lines established after the first war the two countries fought over Kashmir shortly after independence in 1947.

"No casualties or damage", he wrote.

Some recalled the so-called "surgical strike" on suspected militant camps in Pakistan in 2016 after an attack by militants on an Indian army camp.
