Pakistan’s air force has undertaken strikes across the Line of Control from within Pakistani air space.
Military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said that two Indian Air Force warplanes were shot down when they intruded across the Line of Control, following the Pakistani air strikes. He said that one of the Indian fighter jets crashed inside Azad Kashmir.
Ghafoor said that all two Indian pilots have been arrested by Pakistani troops. He said that one of the captured Indian pilots was wounded and has been transferred to a military hospital for treatment.
Ghafoor said that six targets in Indian Occupied Kashmir were hit in the Pakistani air strikes. He said that Pakistan Air Force jets targeted supply depots in Bhimber Gali and Naryan areas of Indian occupied Kashmir.
Ghafoor rejected India’s claim of shooting down a Pakistan Air Force F-16 jet in the engagement. He said that F-16s were not involved in the dogfight with Indian Air Force intruders.
Ghafoor said that the second Indian warplane fell in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Police officials there confirmed that an Indian Air Force warplane crashed in Budgam. They said that the bodies of two Indian Air Force pilots have been found.
