Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi condemned Tuesday's incursion, saying New Delhi had "endangered" peace in the region for political gains.

Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Keshav Gokhale called the strike a "non-military pre-emptive action, specifically targeted at the Jaish-e-Muhammad camp".

"Facing a timely and immediate response from the Pakistan Air Force, Indian aircraft released payloads in haste while escaping", Ghafoor added, referring to weapons fitted in the aircraft.

On February 14, a suicide bomber attacked a convoy of paramilitary police travelling to the capital, Srinagar, killing 46 Indian personnel.

The overnight raid was the latest escalation between the nuclear-armed rivals since a deadly suicide bombing in the disputed Kashmir region earlier this month killed more than 40 Indian soldiers.

In another video which went viral after the Indian Air Force air strikes across the LOC, a fighter jet can be seen launching multiple missiles in the sky amidst complete darkness.

"Pakistan reserves the right to self-defence and respond to such aggression", he said.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan dismissed India's account of the airstrike on a terrorist training camp as "self-serving, reckless and fictitious".

The sources said India will have a much wider choice of aircraft to carry out precision strikes when Rafale jets are inducted into the IAF as they are capable of hitting targets at longer range.

New Delhi blamed Islamabad, which denies having a role in the attack.

There were no casualties or damage, he added. JeM has claimed other attacks on India, including the 2016 Pathankot attack and the 2001 attack on the Indian parliament.

"In light of these events, what benefit would Pakistan get from (involvement in) the Pulwama attack?" he questioned.

Pakistani military say Indian fighter jets were "forced" to retreat from their area, dropping their payload over a deserted area.

The Indian foreign secretary also said the camp was located in Balakot.

The spokesperson said: "The Foreign Secretary reiterated the UK's commitment to working with both India and Pakistan, as well as worldwide partners at the United Nations, to ensure that those responsible for the attack are held to account".

Former president of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf on Tuesday strongly responded to India's violation of Pakistan's airspace in Muzaffarabad, and said Pakistan needed to formulate an effective strategy for retaliation to India. Kashmiri resistance groups in Jammu and Kashmir have been fighting against Indian rule for independence, or for unification with neighboring Pakistan. India routinely accuses Pakistan of arming and training militants who cross the mountainous Himalayan region.
