Pak Jets violate Indian Air Space; Pathankot, Srinagar, J&K on high alert

Pakistani authority confirmed the Air Strikes across Line of Control, in a statement saying we remained "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. Sole purpose being to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self-defence.

Srinagar: A day after the Indian Air Force destroyed the Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp in Pakistan in the aftermath of Pulwama attack, Pak jets on Wednesday entered border areas of Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district, violating Indian air space, according to sources.

"In response to PAF strikes this morning as released by MoFA, IAF crossed LOC. PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace. One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K while other fell inside IOK. One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area," tweets Pakistani Army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor.

On Tuesday, carrying out a surgical strike India bombed and destroyed JeM's biggest training camp in Balakot in Pakistan's restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 80-km from the Line of Control (LoC).

After India's surprise attack in reply to its Pulwama terror strike, Pak jets entered border areas of Indian territories but were pushed back by Indian aircraft, according to a top official.

"The jets entered into Indian air space over Nowshera sector this morning," the official said. They, however, were immediately pushed back by Indian jets on air patrol.

Keeping security in view, airports in Pathankot, Srinagar and J&K are put on high alert. All the civilian flights have been cancelled in the area.
