Did Pakistani, Indian air forces just come face to face? Conflicting reports about sonic booms near Working Boundary emerge
PM Imran approves comprehensive retaliation to ... 06:56 PM | 21 Feb, 2019
ISLAMABAD - Taking a strong exception to the threats in the aftermath of Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Imran Khan has ...
A number of social media users in Pakistan took to Twitter to share that the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighters jets broke sound barriers at Shakargarh and Sialkot sectors twice on Thursday, giving a strong message to India that any adventure would be responded with heavily.
Today PAF 🇵🇰 & IAF 🇮🇳 almost came face to face at Narowal & Zafarwal sector.— Tipu7 (@AhmAdTipu7) February 21, 2019
IAF fighters reportedly broke sound barriers close to border area.
The timely response by PAF thwarted any IAF attempt to violate Pakistan Air space.
On the other hand, an Indian journalist compared the sonic boom with 'panic' in Pakistan's armed forces ranks, ignoring the impression that the sound barrier might have been broken intentionally to let India realise that Pakistan would retaliate heavily in case of an attack.
Pakistan is for sure in panic. Two PAF fighter aircrafts broke the sound barrier today causing a sonic boom which created a loud bang on the ground in Sialkot which caused unnecessary or may be deliberate alarm.— Sanjay Bragta (@SanjayBragta) February 21, 2019
The reports of sonic booms near the Working Boundary come amid the PM Imran's authorisation of a comprehensive military retaliation in case of any aggression by India.
Pakistan's National Security Committee also discussed the ongoing tension between the two countries, with top civilian and military leadership standing on one page.
The NSA committee also noted that the Feb 14 attack was conceived, planned and executed on the Indian soil, and that Pakistan had nothing to do with the Pulwama bombing.
