Indian radars detect Pakistani F-16 jets, UAV close to border, IAF fighter jets force them to retreat

Indian Air Force scrambled Sukhoi Su-30 MKI and Mirage 2000 jets in response and forced the Pakistani jets to go back.

Although the tension between India and Pakistan has deescalated since the dramatic incidents in last week of February, the situation still remains volatile and Pakistan is still trying to avenge the demolition of terror camps in Balakot by Indian Air Force.

According to reports, several Pakistani aircraft were detected flying close to the Indian border in Punjab on the early hours of Monday. Indian radars detected a large-sized Unidentified Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and four F-16 jets of Pakistan Air Force near the Khemkaran sector in Punjab at around 3 AM in the morning.

As soon as enemy aircraft were detected, Indian Air Force scrambled Sukhoi Su-30 MKI and Mirage 2000 jets in response and forced the Pakistani jets to go back.

On February 27, several F-16 jets of Pakistan Air Force had tried to bomb Indian defence bases in Jammu and Kashmir, but they were chased away by Indian Air Force jets. In the process, one MiG-21 of IAF had crashed in Pakistan, after shooting down an F-16. After that, Pakistani drones have been detected by Indian Radars inside Indian territory, and several of them have been shot down by Indian defence forces. On March 4th, one such drone was shot down using an air to air missile by a Sukhoi MKI30 fighter. Before that on 26th February, one Pakistani drone was destroyed using a Derby missile of the Israeli Spyder air defence system, marking the first use of the system by India.
