Pakistan says it shot down two Indian warplanes

Pakistan says its Air Force shot down two Indian warplanes after they crossed the Kashmir border and one pilot has been captured.

Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Wednesday, in retaliation to India’s Line of Control (LoC) violation a day earlier, undertook strikes across the LoC from Pakistani airspace, the Dawn website reported.

“The sole purpose of this action was to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self defence. We do not wish to escalate but are fully prepared if forced into that paradigm,” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA).

Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the director general (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), confirmed the action, adding that “in response to PAF strikes this morning as released by MoFA, IAF [Indian Air Force] crossed LoC.”

“PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace. One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K [Azad Jammu and Kashmir] while other fell inside IoK [Indian occupied Kashmir]. One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area.”

A day earlier, the army spokesperson said that the prime minister had asked everyone to get ready for every eventuality. “We are all ready. Now it is time for India to wait for our response,” he asserted.

“The response will come at a point and time of our choosing where our civil military leadership decides, and as a matter of fact, has decided,” he had said, reiterating the statement issued after the National Security Committee (NSC) meeting convened by Prime Minister Imran Khan. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. I like it like that. Foolish Indians followed the West and created Pakistan. The same fools created terrorism in Sri Lanka and made us to go through agony and pain for decades. Indians blindly follow the West and degrading humanity by breeding as rabbits in the name of democracy. Indians will continue to pay for their stupidity for years to come. I would not surprise if Modi organised the terrorist bomb blast then carried out the attack on Pakistan to look good as election is getting closer. Who killed Rajiv Gandhi’s brother? Indra Gandhi killed her son because he firmly believed that controlling the population was good for india. Indians are not wise, but very cunning. Being cunning won’t help to beat the West or dragon.
