RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army has shot down an Indian quadcopter for violating airspace in Sankh Sector along the Line of Control on Thursday.
According to the media wing of armed forces, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Indian quadcopter intruded six hundred meters inside Pakistan’s territory for conducting surveillance.
The ISPR said this blatant and provocative act was aggressively responded to by Pakistan Army troops by shooting down the Indian quadcopter.
It said that such unwarranted acts by Indian Army were clear violation of established norms, existing air agreement between the two countries and reflected Indian Army’s consistent disregard to ceasefire understanding of 2003.
On April 6, five Indian soldiers, including a Junior Commission Officer, had been killed and several others injured during an ongoing military operation in Kupwara district of Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
The operation was initially launched by Indian army on April 1.
Meanwhile, cordon and search operations continued along Awaoora, Kumkadi, Zurhuma, Safawali, Batpora and Haihama areas of Kupwara district by the Indian occupation forces.
