Pakistan will ‘respond differently, surprise India’, vows army

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday summoned a meeting to review the situation after Indian Air Force carried out air strikes at major terror camps across Line of Control.
The meeting, which is being attended by defence and foreign ministry officials, has come hours after Pakistan Army confirmed that the IAF jets penetrated the LoC and dropped “payloads” in Kashmir, reports ANI.

Earlier on Tuesday, Indian Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale told a media briefing that the raid on the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) camp at Balkot was launched because New Delhi believed suicide attacks in India were “imminent”.

“A very large number of Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen (suicide) action were eliminated,” he said.

JeM claimed responsibility for a February 14 suicide bomb attack in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian paramilitaries.

India claims to have killed hundreds of militants and their trainers in the LoC air strikes on an alleged resort style camp in a hilltop forest in Balakot, providing Indian forces with “a sitting duck target”, when they carried out the air strike early Tuesday, sources said.

Sources added that they shifted to the camp after the Pulwama attack.

However, Pakistan has denied any casualties and claim that Indian Air Force planes , instead, dropped a payload near Balakot in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa before leaving in haste as the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) scrambled its war planes.

Pakistan has vowed to respond at the time, place of its choosing.

Tranquillity prevailed along the Indo-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir (J-K) on Monday after India claimed to have carried out air strikes across the Line of Control (LoC) and destroyed terror camps in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

However, the troops are on high alert, a senior army officer said.     

2:00pm

Pakistan’s President Arif Alvi says India has created “hysteria” in the wake of this month’s attack on Indian troops in the Kashmir region.

Addressing an international conference on media and conflict, Alvi on Tuesday warned that rhetoric “can lead to war.” He did not address an overnight incursion by Indian fighter jets.  Alvi warned Tuesday that “we know how to defend ourselves.”

Pointless to speculate on impact of strike till it is clear which Balakot did IAF hit, says Omar Abdullah

If this is Balakote in KPK it’s a major incursion & a significant strike by IAF planes. However if it’s Balakote in Poonch sector, along the LoC it’s a largely symbolic strike because at this time of the year forward launch pads & militant camps are empty & non-functional.

Timelapse: How Expo 2020 site rose from the desert

40-second clip shows 8-year work that went into creating the incredible Expo architecture.

A stunning timelapse video shows the sheer scale of work that went into realising the UAE’s Expo 2020 dream.
With just five days to go, Expo 2020 Dubai shared the video that captures the eight years of dedication that helped create the incredible architecture for the region’s first world fair.
Sheikh Mohammed visits Expo 2020 operations room
The 40-second video begins with an overhead shot of an empty desert land adjacent to Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai South. It quickly shapes into the iconic site it is today, with the desert terrain coming alive with the Expo’s iconic architecture.
The timelapse video shows how the mega event’s Al Wasl Dome rose up from the desert sands. It also captures the way trees were planted at the venue.

It ends with a reminder to the world: The greatest show begins in five days.
Earlier this month, a then-and-now photo collage of the UAE Vice-President at the Expo 2020 Dubai site in 2016 and 2021 had illustrated how the country transformed a dream into reality in five years.
The first half of the collage shows His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at the Expo site in 2016. The site was nothing but a desert then.
Fast-forward to September 1, 2021 – when the Dubai Ruler visited the site to kickstart the one-month countdown to the mega event – and you see him atop the 55-metre ‘Garden in the Sky’ observation tower, taking in 360-degree views of all that Expo has to offer.

Man dies after guzzling 1.5 litres of carbonated drink in 10 mins

A Chinese man has reportedly died after gulping down a 1.5 litre soft drink bottle in 10 minutes to help him cool off on a hot day.
The 22-year-old’s rapid consumption of the fizzy beverage led to a fatal build-up of gas inside his body. Six hours after consumption, he was forced to go to Chaoyang Hospital in Beijing after experiencing severe pain and a swollen stomach, the Daily Mail reported.
Guzzling the carbonated drink so quickly caused lethal damage, according to doctors who detailed the case in the Clinics and Research in Hepatology and Gastroenterology journal.
The young man was believed to have no underlying health issues. However, tests conducted revealed an elevated heart rate, low blood pressure and rapid breathing.
A CT scan further showed that he had pneumatosis, which is an abnormal presence of gas in his portal vein that provides blood to the liver, as well as in his intestinal wall.
This, in turn, reportedly led to hepatic ischemia, also known as “shock liver”, a type of injury caused by low oxygen supply to the organ.
