RAWALPINDI: The Indian aircraft in the wee hours of Tuesday interrupted 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 in a tweet said the Indian Air Force violated the LoC and the PAF’s prompt response compelled the Indian air-crafts 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 air-crafts’ intrusion across LOC in Muzaffarabad Sector within AJ&K was 3-4 miles. Under forced hasty withdrawal air-crafts 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 in a series of tweets.

On February 22nd 2019, Major General Asif Ghafoor had warned India of retaliation if it chose to attack Pakistan or opted for any sort of aggression against the country.
