Pakistan Armed Forces spokesperson Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor disproved all Indian claims of downing Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jet F-16 inside arch-its territory.

In an emergent press conference in the wake of Pakistan’s robust response to Indian aggression on Wednesday, the military spokesperson explained the ongoing activity at the Line of Control (LoC) and shared, “PAF engaged six targets across LoC from within Pakistani airspace.”

The DG stressed that Pakistan’s reaction of shooting down Indian fighter jets and arresting their pilots, can not be indicated as victory because “there are no victors in war.”

“Pakistan’s response is not a retaliation, but a demonstration of our capability as we are a responsible country. It is now up to India whether they go towards peace, which is a requirement of the region. But if forced, we will respond.”

Pakistan does not want war, “our message is for peace,” he emphasized. “Starting a war is easy, but where it ends, nobody knows.”

Responding to a question, Major General Ghafoor said, “Pakistan is not pushing for war. We engaged our targets in open air, we deliberately avoided escalation. We could easily have taken the original targets, but we did not do that.”

The military spokesperson asserted, “Pakistan’s armed forces have capability, resolve and nation’s support. But because we are a responsible state and we want peace, therefore, we first decided to not attack any military target.”

The spokesperson dismissed the Indian media reports about the crash of Pakistan’s fighter jet F-16 inside India.
