Over 20 Pakistani fighter jets had tried to attack Indian military bases with laser guided bombs: MEA sources

Indian Military is maintaining highest alert level, souces said

Indian Government has made new revelations about the attempt by Pakistan yesterday to attack Indian military bases. Following India’s air strike on terror camps in Pakistan on the early hours of 26th February, Pakistan Air Force fighters had tried to enter the Indian air space, but they are chased back by Indian Air Force MiG-21 jets which were on Combat Air Patrol (CAP) at that time. Indian jets had shot down an F-16 jet of Pakistan, while a MiG-21 had crashed inside Pakistan controlled Kashmir, and the pilot was captured by locals and handed over to Pakistani Army.

According to reports, the Ministry of External Affairs has revealed that more than 20 fighter planes of Pakistan Air Force approached the LoC at 9.45 AM yesterday. The jets had breached the 10 km range of the LoC, and few of them even breached the LoC. The Pakistani jets launched some laser-guided bombs targeted the Indian military bases, but they missed the narrowly.

It proves that the Pakistani claim of not targeting Indian military bases is completely false, government sources said. They added that India Armed Forces are at the highest level of alertness at present, to prevent any more attempt of intrusion by Pakistani forces.

The Pakistani attack was successfully thwarted by Indian Air Force Jets, with MiG-21 jets engaging the Pakistani planes in a dogfight on air. This had marked the first aerial engagement between fighter jets of both the countries after the 1971 war. The situation has remained tense after the incident, with India demanding the immediate return of the captured pilot as per Geneva convention.

Although the Indian military is fully prepared for any more aggression by Pakistan, there is no halt on normal activities in India. But Pakistan presents a completely contrasting view, with its airspace remained completely shut down for two days. All domestic and international flights in Pakistan were suspended, although few international flights out of Pakistan have been allowed to take off today afternoon, there is no flight going into that country. On the other hand, all international flights that fly over Pakistan have been rerouted to fly over the Arabian sea, avoiding Pakistan air space.
