Pakistan Army Claims To Shoot-Down Indian Spy Drone Near The LoC

Pakistan Army claimed to shot down an Indian spy drone near the Line of Control (LoC), according to a statement released by the media wing of Pakistan Army. The alleged Indian drone was brought down in the Rakhchikri sector of the heavily militarised zone after it intruded 150 metres into Pakistani territory according to reports by media in Pakistan.

Tensions escalated dramatically between Pakistan and India on February 14 when a young man – a native of Jammu and Kashmir rammed an explosives-laden car into an Indian military convoy, killing at least 44 soldiers.

India was quick to blame Pakistan for the suicide bombing in Kashmir on February 14. Prime Minister Imran Khan offered every possible help in the investigation, but India turned down the offer and whipped up war hysteria.

Pakistan Media Reports Secretive Test of JF-17’s ‘Smart Weapon’

On February 26, the Indian Air Force violated Pakistani airspace. The country’s top civil and military leadership declared the violation of airspace by Indian fighter jets “uncalled for aggression” and decided that the country would respond at a “time and place of its choosing”.

On February 27, Pakistan announced it had shot down two Indian fighter jets that attempted to violate its airspace and captured an Indian pilot. The military’s media wing later released a video of the pilot, who introduced himself as Wing Commander Abhinandan bearing service number 27981.

Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a press conference that the armed forces had responsibly retaliated to Indian incursion by striking targets near an Indian military administrative unit to ensure there were no human loss or collateral damage.“We decided to not hit a military target or endanger human life. We did not want to retaliate at the cost of regional peace. We do not want escalation,” he told reporters.
