Pakistan Army has claimed to shot-down another Indian ‘spy drone’ that violated its airspace along the Line of Control (LoC). The downing of the ‘Indian drone’ was confirmed by Pakistan’s DG-ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar in a tweet.

“Pakistan Army troops shot down an Indian spying quadcopter in Khanjar Sector along LOC. The quadcopter had intruded 500 meters on Pakistan’s side of the LOC,” the tweet read.
This is the third Indian spy drone the Pakistan security forces have detected, intercepted and destroyed near the line of control in less than two weeks. “This is 8th Indian Quadcopter shot down by Pakistan Army troops this year.”
Earlier, as EurAsian Times reported, Pakistan troops shot down an Indian spy drone after it intruded into Pak-controlled Kashmir which was then termed as the second such incident in three days.

“Pakistan Army troops shot down an Indian spying #quadcopter which came from Kanzalwan Sector, intruded 700 metres on Pakistan side of #LoC in Nekrun Sector,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a tweet.
Few days back as EurAsian Times reported, the DG ISPR has reiterated the apprehensions of Pakistan PM Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi that Modi government was planning a false flag operation against Pakistan.
In an interview, Maj-Gen Iftikhar described the reason for the Indian operation, claiming that lately, the Modi government has faced great embarrassments on several fronts and India could divert the global attention by launching a ‘false-flag’ operation.
The Pakistan Army shot down many Indian spy drones, he said, adding that any Indian hostility will be countered in an appropriate manner. He went to warn that there will be severe consequences of any military adventurism against Pakistan and cautioned India: “Let’s not play with fire.”
