Pakistan Says Indian Air Force Did Not Go Deep into Pakistani Territory

NEW DELHI/ISLAMABAD – Pakistan said on Tuesday that Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jets crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and returned after the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) scrambled war planes, The Economic Times said Tuesday.
Pakistan has clarified that the IAF jets dropped bombs within Pakistani Kashmir at Balakote.
Amid confusion about the location as there are two places by the name of Balakot/Balakote, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), Asif Ghafoor, said the intrusion took place within three to four miles of LoC in Pakistan administered Kashmir.
His earlier tweet had mentioned that the Indian fighters dropped a payload at Balakot.
A place called Balakot is in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and a Balakote is in the Pakistani administered Kashmir.
Following an uproar in Pakistan about Indian jets flying deep into its territory, the DG ISPR clarified that the intrusion took place close to the LOC.
The alleged incident took place in the Muzaffarabad sector, said Radio Pakistan.
Flight tracking websites spotted heightened activities along the border with an IAF early warning plane Emb 145 and mid-air refueller circling in the area early in the morning.
Reports claimed that the IAF strike was carried out by a group of Mirage 2000 fighters at around 3.30 a.m.
