Pakistan Airforce’s F16 that violated Indian airspace shot down by Indian Air Force : Reports

This comes a day after the Indian Airforce conducted airstrikes deep inside Pakistan territory, with India's nuclear-capable Mirage 2000 going right up to Balakot, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa

Initial reports indicate that Pakistan Airforce attempted to infiltrate Indian airspace on Wednesday. The PAF jets were confronted by the Indian Airforce and the bid to infiltrate was thwarted. Reportedly, Pakistan F-16s attempted to infiltrate but were pushed back by Indian SU-30s.

This comes a day after the Indian Airforce conducted airstrikes deep inside Pakistan territory, with India’s nuclear-capable Mirage 2000 going right up to Balakot, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. In the raid, it is reported that Pakistan suffered over 200-300 casualties of their Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists. India had struck the terror camps in three areas, one of which was Balakot.

According to ANI, the PAF jet that violated Indian airspace has been shot down by Indian Air Force.

Perhaps to obfuscate the fact their PAF jet has been shot down, now Pakistan is claiming that they did not violate Indian airspace and that this was a display of their “intent”.

Pakistan had first denied the attack and then, cried foul. In response to our airstrikes, Pakistan had resorted to heavy shelling along the Line of Control last night. In response, India had destroyed 5 Pakistani Army posts and had airlifted 2 jawans to the hospital, who had been injured.

UPDATE: An official statement was released by the MEA officials confirming that Pakistan tried to target Indian military assets. IAF thwarted those attempts and shot down Pakistan’s f-16. In the process, we lost one MiG 21 too. One pilot’s whereabouts are unknown and the government is trying to ascertain the veracity of claims that he is in Pakistan’s custody. Read the statement here.
