“One of the aircraft fell inside AJK while other fell inside IoK. One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area,” Director Gneral of the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said.
The Foreign Office in a statement stated, “Pakistan Air Force (PAF) conducted strikes across Line of Control (LoC) from within Pakistani airspace.”
“This was not a retaliation to continued Indian belligerence. Pakistan has therefore, taken strikes at non-military target, avoiding human loss and collateral damage,” the FO statement read.
“Sole purpose being to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self defence. We have no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm,” it added. “That is why we undertook the action with clear warning and in broad daylight.”
