Indian aircrafts entered Pakistani airspace, chased away immediately by PAF jets

Indian aircraft have violated Pakistani airspace near the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed territory of Kashmir, dropping a payload that left no casualties, Pakistan’s military has said.

The aircraft entered Pakistani airspace early on Tuesday morning and returned to India after Pakistani air force jets were scrambled to intercept them, Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a Twitter post.

“Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage,” he said.

The Indian aircraft appear to have crossed the LoC near the border village of Chakothi in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

This is first major intrusion from Indian side after much escalated border situation between both the nuclear states. Pakistan has confirmed the strongest response in case of any misadventures by India and said that Pakistan Army will defend the motherland till the last bullet and last breath.
