Pakistan military has confirmed that two Indian fighter jets were shot down today in response to Indian aggression.
DG ISPR said: “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.”
The military spokesperson added that one Indian pilot was arrested by the Pakistani troops on the ground.
Indian media has earlier reported that two pilots were killed when a Mig 21 plane crashed in Occupied Kashmir’s Budgam District.
The surprise move came a day after Indian jets intruded into Pakistani airspace and claimed to have attacked a militant camp.
On Tuesday, General Asif Ghafoor while rubbishing the claims of Indians that their aircraft stayed in Pakistan’s airspace for 21 minutes and killed 350 terrorists asked the adversary to get ready for response.
“The formation of the Indian aircraft crossed the LoC by four to five nautical miles which was timely and effectively challenged and repulsed by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF),” he said, adding after dropping the payload of four bombs in a haste, they went back under pressure from the PAF aircraft. “It is time for India to get response for which time place will be chosen by us and the response may be in any domain,” Major General Asif Ghafoor said at a news briefing on Tuesday, maintaining that the response would come and it would come differently.
