Indian military aircraft violated the Line of Control as they intruded from Muzaffarabad sector in the Kashmir region, a spokesman for Pakistan’s Army said on Tuesday.
The Indian aircraft “released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot”. There were “no casualties or damage,” Pakistan Army spokesman Asif Ghafoor wrote on Twitter.
Ghafoor, tweeted, “Indian aircrafts intruded from Muzaffarabad sector. Facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in haste while escaping which fell near Balakot. No casualties or damage.”
Meanwhile, Indian local media reported that the Indian Air Force launched air strikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camp across the Line of Cross in Balakot, a town in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in Pakistan.
The strike comes almost two weeks after a terror attack killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary personnel in Pulwama in Kashmir that raised tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbors.
India accused Pakistan of harboring terrorists who targeted its Army personnel, as Pakistan has rejected the assertion.
Earlier, Pakistan’s ambassador to Afghanistan Zahid Nasrullah had warned that peace talks between the U.S. and Afghan Taliban would be affected if India resorted to violence against Pakistan in response to a recent deadly bombing in the Kashmir region.
