Since the Pulwama attack on CRPF jawans conducted by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), the increasing tension between two nuclear neighbors, Pakistan and India are being feared by the common people of both the nations.
The Indian Air Force retaliated to the terror attack and hurled 1000 Kg bombs via airstrike crossing LoC and entering Balakot, Pakistan. Based on the solid intelligence information, the air force pinpointed terrorist campsites in Balakot and took the action right after 12 days of the terror attack.
As per the reports, over 350 terrorists are killed in action as the Indian Air Force demolished the camps in Balakot. Retaliating to the airstrike done by India, Pak Air Force tried to enter and target the Indian military base in Nowshera, J&K but were compelled to abort and retrace back by Indian military actions.
Raveesh Kumar, MEA Spokesperson, said to the media about the Pak air Force infiltration and also told about a befitting reply by Indian Defense to send the fighters back to their base. He also accused Pak Air Force of targeting India’s military bases near Pak LoC.
He said that the infiltration was stopped by the intervention done by MiG-21 Bison. Pakistan Air Force lost one fighter plane in the process and India also lost a MiG-21 too.
He also said, “The pilot is missing in action. Pakistan has claimed that he is in their custody. We are ascertaining the facts.”
