Pakistan shots down the Indian fighter jets
- February 27, 2019
Pakistan shot down two Indian aircraft inside the Pakistan airspace and two pilots had been captured.
Indian air force planes strayed into Pakistani airspace on the same day after Pakistan had carried out airstrikes in Indian-occupied Kashmir, said Major General Asif Ghafoor, a spokesman for the Pakistan armed forces.
“PAF shot down two Indian aircraft inside Pakistani airspace,” he said in a tweet.
One of the aircraft fell on India’s side of Kashmir, while the second came down in Pakistani-held territory, and its pilot was captured, he added.
Indian police announced that two pilots and a civilian dead.
Indian officials said three Pakistani jets had also entered Indian airspace, before being intercepted and forced to turn back.
The Indian air force ordered Kashmir’s main airport in Srinagar and three other airports to close down because of the incidents.
Pakistan shut down its airspace in light of the current situation.
