The Indian Air Force on Wednesday morning shot down a Pakistani F-16 jet that had been a part of an attempt by Pakistan to intrude into Indian airspace. The intruder aircraft was shot down as India retaliated to the incursion

The Pakistan Air Force F-16 was brought down in the Lam Valley in Nowshera sector. Furthermore, as per eyewitnesses, a parachute was seen as the Pakistani fighter jet went down.

The shooting down of the F-16 was part of the Indian Air Force's successful confronting and pushing back of Pakistani jets in two sectors of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday after an infiltration attempt into Indian airspace. Pakistan has closed its own airspace following India bringing down its fighter jet.

The incursion comes a day after the Indian Air Force had successfully eliminated terror training camps in Pakistan and PoK which were functioning with full impunity. The very fact that Pakistan tried to use official assets to come into Indian air space, just a day later, is only a further corroboration of the narrative that they fully support those in the JeM, the LeT and the Hizbul Mujahideen camps eliminated by India.

Pakistan has shut down its airspace and stops all domestic and international flight operations from Lahore, Multan, Faislabad, Sialkot and Islamabad airports.
