Indian Air Force shoots down Pakistan F-16 fighter jet: report

Did the Indian Air Force really shot down Pakistan’s F-16 Fighter Jet? India continues to maintain that the Indian Air Force shot down Pakistan’s F-16 Fighter while Pakistan has rejected the claims. What does that Pakistan Media say?

Iran Offers To Mediate between India and Pakistan To De-Escalate Tensions

Pakistan’s Dawn writes that Mohammad Razzaq Chaudhry was in the courtyard of his house in Horra’n village, located barely 7km from the Line of Control in Pakistan administered Kashmir’s Bhimber district, at about 8:45 am when the “smoke and sound” made him realise that a dogfight between India and Pakistani jet was going on.

Upon watching them carefully, Chaudhry noticed that two aircraft had caught fire but while one of them sped across the LoC, the other burst into flames and came down speedily. The statement by Chaudhry to Pakistan’s leading media house confirms one thing that two jets were shot in the dogfight.

While the one fighter jet landed on the Pakistan side which was the Indian MiG 21 Bison, the other jet which had caught fire was probably the F-16 fighter jet of Pakistan Air Force which India has been claiming?

Earlier Reports in Indian Media

Indian Air Force’s air strike on the Jaish-e-Mohammed’s terror camps on February 26, things have escalated between India and Pakistan. Earlier in the day, there was heavy firing across the LoC in Rajouri and Poonch districts. Pakistan reportedly carried out multiple ceasefire violations and their fighter jets violated the Indian airspace. Pakistani jets were forced to retreat after retaliation from Indian Army.

In the latest round of development, it is learned that a Pakistan F-16 that violated the Indian airspace was shot down in retaliation by the Indian forces in Pakistan territory in Lam district, Nowshera sector. A parachute was seen as the F-16 went down, however, the condition of the pilot is still unknown, reported ANI. Pakistan’s MoFA spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said that the sole purpose of the PAF’s strike was to demonstrate their right and capability for self-defence.

Pakistan may never accept that its fighter jet was shot down while India continues to maintain its stance and the reality may never actually come out.
