SUNDAY TIMES ISLAMABAD:We have no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm. That is why we undertook the action with clear warning and in broad daylight,” said the FO in a statement.

Two fighter jets of the Indian Air Force (IAF) were shot down by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) after the former once again violated the Line of Control (LoC) in two days.

The FO said the PAF on Wednesday undertook strikes across the LoC from India within Pakistani airspace. This was not a retaliation to continued Indian belligerence, the office clarified.
