Indian Air Force on Thursday night performed drills and exercises very close to the border near Jammu, Kashmir and Punjab. The border region is under increased stress after the Pulwama Terror Attack and on 26th February. At the border regions, there is a strange atmosphere after India’s Surgical Strike2 i.e. IAF Air Strike. Several Air Force fighter jets have participated in this exercise.
The sound of the blasts was heard in the town of Amritsar near Punjab late last night, after which there was panic among the locals. The people of the city heard the heavy explosions at around 1:30 late night. Prior notice of the drill was not provided to the locals.
During this exercise, the Indian Air Force jets took supersonic speeds in the border districts, including Amritsar and reviewed their preparedness. During this time Frontline Fighter Plane was also included. This practice was done to thwart any intrusions done by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
On February 26, the Indian Air Force had performed Air Strike, targeting Pakistan’s terrorist camp in Balakot, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, Pakistan. Since then, Indian armies are on high alert.
Just days before, two aircraft of Pakistani Air Force were seen flying with supersonic speed in Poonch, Jammu and Kashmir, near the Line of Control. The Indian Air Force is also on alert as the Pakistani air force movement continues along the international border and the LoC. The Indian Air Force is closely monitoring the movements from PAF.
