Wait for Pakistan’s surprised response, DG ISPR tells India


RAWALPINDI: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor Tuesday told India to wait for Pakistan’s surprised response to its aggression against Pakistan.
Addressing a press conference here, the DG ISPR rejected Indian claims of being present inside the Pakistani airspace for 21 minutes during their Line of Control breach today.
“Almighty Allah is all powerful. Let India come and stay in Pakistani airspace for 21 minutes. We will see what will happen next,” Maj General Asif Ghafoor said.
The Pakistan army spokesperson said that Pakistan forces repulsed the dour to five nautical miles breach of the Indian Airforce. He confirmed the payload of Indian jet fell in Jaba area in Balakot and said that the area was opened to media and could check how many people were killed in the incident.
“Not even a single brick or debris is present there. They are claiming 350 deaths. Even had there been 10 casualties, there would be blood, funeral prayers, injuries,” the spokesperson said.
“According to war methodology, our entire Air Force could not have stayed airborne. Our safeguards on land were in place. So if they had tried an on-ground incursion, they would have met the response that we had planned.
“Last night, our radars were observing them. They had earlier come closer to our border but did not cross it. Last night, their first visibility was observed near the Sialkot and Lahore border. They were seen approaching the border. Our Combat Air Patrol (CAP) team approached and challenged them. They did not cross.
“As per the SOP (standard operating procedure), when the first team got committed there, the next CAP team automatically was airborne. During this, another one of their formation was picked in Bahawalpur sector. The second standby team went down south and challenged it. We then observed that the more heavier of their teams was approaching Muzaffarabad sector from Kiran Valley. When our third CAP team challenged them, they had crossed the LoC.
“Their approaching of the border, the challenge and their return took four minutes,” said the ISPR DG.
“If they had struck any military position, then an engagement would have happened. But they did not do that because if they had done so, our soldiers were ready.
“India’s purpose is not that — Modi’s government, even when it violates ceasefire violations in Azad Kashmir, deliberately targets civil population. Had they struck the military last night, then uniformed personnel would have been martyred and it would not have served their purpose.”
He said that the nation was united and India would get response. He said that Pakistan airforce had responded to Indian intrusion in three different places on working boundary and Line of Control. He said that the prime minister has summoned a meeting of the National Command Authority and everyone knows what its means. He said that joint parliament session would also be held tomorrow. He said that Pakistan was democratic country and all political parties were united against Indian aggression. He said that Indian would be responded diplomatically, politically and militarily. He said that political parties have given untied response to India.
