BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Last week, the world witnessed one of the most intense confrontations between the Pakistani and Indian armed forces in several years.
This military confrontation would bring to light both India and Pakistan’s claims to the disputed Kashmir and Jammu territories.
During the confrontation, the Pakistani armed forces managed to shoot down at least two Indian Sukhoi jets that were flying over the disputed Kashmir region.
In response, India claimed that their armed forces downed a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet, despite the PAF’s insistence that they did not use the warplane during the confrontation.
Since the fierce exchange, both sides have remained on high alert around the Kashmir region; however, for now, it appears the hostilities have dissipated, especially since the Pakistani government released the captured Indian pilot.
