Fake surgical strikes: DG ISPR says "wait and watch" how Pakistan will respond to Indian violation of LoC
Addressing a press conference at the General Headquarters (GHQ), Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor exposed the Indian claim of its fighter jets flying inside Pakistani airspace for 21 minutes.
"Dare coming into Pakistan and try flying your aircraft for 21 minutes [and we will show you the response]," the military spokesman said.

New Delhi said strikes targeted a Balakot training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) group, the militant group blamed to have carried out a suicide attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir that killed 40 members of a paramilitary police force on Feb. 14. India’s foreign secretary said “a very large number of JEM terrorists” had been eliminated in what was the first Indian air strike on Pakistani territory since 1971.
The villagers, however, said only one person was wounded in the attack and they knew of no fatalities.
Pakistan although confirmed the strikes but said hit an empty area. The top civilian and military leadership, in a National Security Committee (NSC), has vowed to respond at the place and time of its choosing.
Relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours have been strained since a suicide attack earlier this month that killed more than 40 Indian troops.
This is a developing story and will be updated soon.
