Yesterday after the violation of the LOC by Indian jets, DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor warned India, “You will be surprised by the reaction of Pakistan Air Force.”
Following morning nearly at 11:30 AM, Pakistan struck back causing major damage by destroying two Indian jets near Azad Kashmir and Indian Occupied Kashmir, without violating the Line of Control.
DG ISPR confirms the news on the social media platform by tweeting:
In response to PAF strikes this morning as released by MoFA, IAF crossed LOC. PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace. One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K while other fell inside IOK. One Indian pilot arrested by troops on ground while two in the area.

DG ISPR added that Pakistan earlier invited the neighboring country to join hands and investigate the Pulwana Attack jointly but Modi’s men chose a path for war without worrying about the consequences.
At the moment, an Indian Pilot is under Pakistan’s custody while Indian Air Force is three planes less since they were shot down by Pakistan earlier in the day.

The Indian pilot is being treated in a hospital and DG ISPR has told the authorities to treat him well. Prime Minister Imran Khan will be addressing the nation soon to take them into confidence and explain how Pakistan plans to counter India’s threatening behavior.
