Summary

There are no discernible holes in the roofs of buildings, no signs of scorching, blown-out walls, displaced trees around the school or other signs of an aerial attack.The images cast further doubt on statements made over the last eight days by the Indian government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the February 26 raids had hit all the intended targets at the school site in northern Pakistan's Balakot region. India's foreign and defence ministries did not reply to questions about the satellite images emailed by Reuters news agency.Jeffrey Lewis, director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Project at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, confirmed the photographs showed the structures in question still standing."The high-resolution images don't show any evidence of bomb damage," he said.Government sources said last week 12 Mirage 2000 jets carrying 1,000kg bombs carried out the attack.Lewis and Dave Schmerler, a senior research associate at the James Martin Center for nonproliferation studies who also analyses satellite images, said weapons that large would have caused obvious damage to the structures visible in the picture."If the strike had been successful - given the information we have about what kind of munitions were used - I would expect to see signs that the buildings had been damaged," said Lewis.
