It follows a third attempt in nine days by the Reuters team to climb a hill at the site leading to a madrasa, or religious school, believed to have been run at one point by the Pakistani-based jihadist group Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM).

Meanwhile, White House bureau chief Steve Herman tweeted on Saturday: " US issues Level 2 travel alert for India - "exercise increased caution", warning Americans to not visit most of Jammu and Kashmir due to "terrorism and civil unrest" and not go within 10 km of the border with Pakistan 'due to the potential for armed conflict'".

Pakistan has made a decision to "upgrade" a group of banned outfits, including the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), to a "high" risk category and start monitoring and re-examining their activities to comply with obligations of global watchdog Financial Action Task Force or FATF, according to a media report today.

Kumar said that India remains resolute in its determination to persuade the worldwide community towards the necessity of compelling Pakistan to prove their commitments by showing actions rather than words.

He said a recent United Nations statement also called for "perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of terrorism to be held accountable and brought to justice".

The decision was finalised earlier in the week, with New Delhi also agreeing to return its envoy to Islamabad, Ajay Bisaria, who is also scheduled to resume his charge from today.

Kumar accused Pakistan of failing to take any credible action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terrorist organizations, which he said continued to operate with impunity from Pakistan.

The Indian spokesman said "the widespread presence of terrorist camps in Pakistan is public knowledge within and outside Pakistan".

The prime minister said March 8, 2019 that no militant group would be allowed to operate on Pakistani soil and carry out attacks overseas.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday said no militant group would be allowed to operate from Pakistani soil to carry out attacks overseas, days after his government announced a sweeping crackdown against Islamist militant organisations.

Pakistani officials say this crackdown is part of a long-planned drive and not a response to Indian anger.

Pakistan has denied any damage or casualties, and independent reporting has shown the strikes hit a heavily forested area with little infrastructure nearby.

Only one aircraft was lost by India during Pakistan's unsuccessful attempt at targeting Indian military installations, he said.

Islamabad responded by shooting down two Indian warplanes and capturing a pilot, who was later returned to India as a peace gesture.
