They guarantee that the second strike was in Muzaffarabad and the third in Chakothi.
“Allah god-like is the best and we ought not make tall cases, yet come and attempt to go through 21 minutes in Pakistani airspace.”
“As indicated by war strategy, our whole Air Force couldn’t have remained airborne. Our shields ashore were set up. So on the off chance that they had attempted an on-ground invasion, they would have met the reaction that we had arranged.
“The previous evening, our radars were watching them. They had before come nearer to our fringe however did not cross it. The previous evening, their first perceivability was seen close to the Sialkot and Lahore outskirt. They were seen moving toward the outskirt. Our Combat Air Patrol (CAP) group drew nearer and tested them. They didn’t cross.
“According to the SOP (standard working technique), when the principal group got submitted there, the following CAP group naturally was airborne. Amid this, another of their arrangement was picked in Bahawalpur part. The second backup group went down south and tested it. We at that point saw that the more heavier of their groups was drawing nearer Muzaffarabad division from Kiran Valley. At the point when our third CAP group tested them, they had crossed the LoC.
“Their drawing nearer of the outskirt, the test and their arrival took four minutes,” said the ISPR DG.
“On the off chance that they had struck any military position, at that point a commitment would have occurred. Be that as it may, they didn’t do that in such a case that they had done as such, our officers were prepared.

Had they struck the military the previous evening, at that point formally dressed staff would have been martyred and it would not have filled their need.
“They needed to focus on a spot where regular people could have kicked the bucket, so they could guarantee that they focused on a psychological militant camp.

On their way back, they casted off their payload. Four of their bombs fell in [Balakot’s] Jabba and they returned.
“The ground troops’ responsibility is to discover on the off chance that anything has fallen or not. When they [Indian aircraft] returned, we checked through our line of correspondence and found that there were no strikes.

“However, the neighborhood media is there and have appeared there was not in any case a solitary block there. They are asserting that they executed 350 psychological militants; I state regardless of whether they had slaughtered 10, shouldn’t something be said about their bodies, their funerals, their blood […] the spot is open for anyone and everyone: for represetatives, protection joins, UN military eyewitness assemble in Pakistan.
“Indeed, even the regular citizen populace or armed force agents from India can get through the approved section focuses in Pakistan. See it for yourself and return and tell your head administrator.”
