Pakistan Army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor confirmed Pakistan shot down two Indian fighter jets on Wednesday, during a press conference in Islamabad on Wednesday.

“When PAF [Pakistan Air Force] struck [the] targets, two IAF[Indian Air Force] planes violated the Line of Control and entered Pakistan. PAF was ready, there was an engagement and as a result both Indian planes were shot down”, he stated.

The spokesperson also said that the aerial engagement led to one of the warplanes falling on the Indian side of Kashmir and the other coming down inside the Pakistan side.

On Tuesday, India launched air raids on what it said was a Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) training base in Pakistan’s Balakot, leading to an escalation of tensions between the neighbouring countries.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
