Rawalpindi: Late Monday Night, Indian Air Force Jets flew 3-4 Km into Pakistani Air Space, violating the Line of Control. Maj. Gen. ASif Ghafoor, DG ISPR said.
The intrusion took place along the Line of Control in Muzaffarabad sector. Pakistan Air Force responded instantly by scrambling fighter jets and sending the intruders right back across the border. While fleeing, Indian jets had to dispatch payload, which landed in an open area and no causalities are reported.
Tensions between the two nuclear powers have been at their peak since the Pulwama attack this month. At the same time, Anti-state sentiment in Indian-occupied Kashmir has surged due to recent crackdowns by security forces in the valley.
Both countries, especially India must realize the importance of dialogue and refrain from confrontations that might possibly escalate to a full blown nuclear war.
