New Delhi: The Indian Air Force(IAF) on Wednesday denied that Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jets violated Indian airspace in Siachen.
Reports in Pakistan media claimed that the PAF flew fighter jets near the Siachen Glacier and made ‘forward operating bases’ operational. According to Pakistani media, the country’s Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman visited the Qadri Airbase in Skardu where war exercises by fighter jet squadrons are being held. The Pakistan Air Chief also took part in the exercise and flew a fighter plane himself, said the reports.
“The nation should not worry about the enemy’s statements. We are peace loving people but are ready to face all kinds of challenges,” Aman said to Pakistani media after watching the war exercises at Qadri airbase.
Aman also claimed that the Pakistan Air Force would give a ‘fitting reply’ to any ‘misadventure’ by India. “Our response will be remembered by their coming generations,” the Air Chief was quoted as saying. According to PAF, Aman met the pilots and technical staff of the fighting force. A fighter squadron carried out higher and lower altitude flights.

The Siachen glacier is the highest battleground on the earth. It is located in the eastern Karakoram range in the Himalayan mountains where the Line of Control between India and Pakistan ends.
Pakistan’s aggressive manoeuvres come a day after the Indian Army released videos showing its fire assault on Pakistan army posts helping infiltration into Kashmir.
However, the Pakistan army spokesperson denied the Indian Army’s assertion. “Indian claims of destroying Pakistani post along the Line of Control in Nowshera Sector and firing by Pakistan Army on civilians across LoC are false.”
