Pakistani has claimed on Tuesday that Indian Air Force has crossed the Line of Control (LOC), following the recent Pulwama attack terror in Jammu and Kashmir claimed by Pakistani based and backed Jaish-e-Mohammed terror organization.

According to TOI news reports, Pakistan’s claim comes in the wake of rising tension between the two nation in the aftermath of the terror attack in Pulwama.

The spokesperson for the Pakistan Armed Forces, major general Asif Ghafoor, in a tweet, wrote: “Indian Air Force violated Line of Control (LoC). Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled. Indian aircraft went back. Details to follow (sic).”

Gharoof continued tweeting: “Indian aircrafts’ intrusion across LOC in Muzaffarabad Sector within AJ&K was 3-4 miles. Under forced hasty withdrawal aircrafts released payload which had free fall in the open area. No infrastructure got hit, no casualties. Technical details and other important information to follow.”

Within the hours of a surgical strike by Indian AFS, Islamabad’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi gathered an emergency meeting in the capital. The meeting was likely to be discussed over the security situation.

Pakistan’s chief of army staff (COAS) General Qamar Jawed Bajwa has also paid a visit to Pakistani military forces on Friday, deployed at the LOC in Kashmir and also instructed troops to “be ready to face any eventuality.”

Bajwa also on Monday addressed the headquarters of Rawalpindi Corps, when he received updates of the operating condition as well state of readiness along the LOC, Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Working Boundary (WB).

He also met with the chief of air staff, Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan at the Air Headquarters in Rawalpindi, where the two chiefs “deliberated on the operational environment including threat and response” and also “expressed satisfaction on readiness, coordination and synergy,” according to Ghafoor.
