Indian media claims that PAF fighter jets have crossed LoC in Poonch district of Indian occupied Kashmir.
According to India today’s media report in the Mendhar sector of Poonch district PAF jets violated airspace.
But according to the Hindustan times Pakistani fighter jet only flew very close to the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch district on Monday morning.
“The jet flew close to the LoC in Poonch sector in violation of international conventions which does not allow fighter jets to fly within a 10km radius of the border,” a defence spokesperson said.
The spokesperson said that a jet stream was clearly visible in the sky close to the LoC in Poonch. Recently, a few drones had been spotted near the Line of Control.
The incident, that comes amid a rising number of cross-border firings between the two countries, has sparked speculation of a dogfight, similar to the one noticed on February 27, 2019, a day after Indian Air Force jets dropped bombs in Balakot.
A Pakistani drone was also spotted by India’s Border Security Forces (BSF) in the Arnia sector along the 198-km long international border in Jammu district on Saturday evening.
There were more than 3,800 incidents of “ceasefire violations” along the Line of Control (LoC) in the year, as per reports.
