Pakistan Army shoots down Indian spy drone: ISPR
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Thursday mentioned an Indian quadcopter had violated the Pakistani airspace in Sankh Sector alongside the Line of Control.
“In this provocative act, Indian quadcopter intruded 600 meters inside Pakistan’s territory for conducting surveillance,” the army’s media mentioned in a press release.
“This blatant act was aggressively responded to by Pakistan Army troops shooting down Indian quadcopter. Such unwarranted acts by Indian Army are clear violation of established norms, existing Air Agreement between two countries and reflect Indian Army’s consistent disregard to Ceasefire Understanding of 2003,” it added.
Last yr in March, the military had shot down a quadcopter in Rakhchikri Sector alongside the LoC when it got here 150 meters inside Pakistan, in line with the ISPR.
The intrusion had come within the aftermath of the heightened tensions between the 2 international locations, following New Delhi’s aggression in Balakot after Pulwama assault.
Tensions between Pakistan and India had flared up after the Narendra Modi authorities, with none proof, had blamed Islamabad for the Pulwama assault.
Earlier in January 2019, the troops had shot one other spy quadcopter in Bagh sector alongside the LoC.
