RAWALPINDI: Indian aircraft in the wee hours of Tuesday intruded the Line of Control (LoC) near Muzaffarabad sector, however they scrambled back following timely response from the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor said the Indian Air Force violated the LoC and the PAF’s prompt response compelled the Indian aircrafts to go back.

He said “facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force, [Indian jets] released [their] payload in haste while escaping, which fell near Balakot.” However, no casualties or damage was reported, DG ISPR added.

“Indian aircrafts’ intrusion across LOC in Muzaffarabad Sector within AJK was 3-4 miles. Under forced hasty withdrawal aircrafts released payload which had free fall in open area. No infrastructure got hit, no casualties. Technical details and other important information to follow,” Ghafoor said.
