Islamabad Has 'Reliable Intel' India Readying New Attack on Pakistan

In the article, Foreign Policy's Lara Seligman claimed that United States officials have told her that all of Pakistan's F-16 jets are accounted for and none of them are missing, following a recent check by USA personnel after the February aerial dogfight with India.

In a tweet today (Saturday), he said the USA defence officials have also confirmed that no F-16 was missing from Pakistan's fleet.

Islamabad has said consistently that it did not lose an F-16, that it had deployed JF-17 jets jointly built with China against India and that it had destroyed two Indian aircraft, as opposed to the one downed jet India has confirmed. The two sightings were at places separated by at least 8-10 kilometers.

Indian officials said the air raid had struck a camp allegedly linked to the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group, which reportedly had claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide vehicle bombing in Kashmir's Pulwama district that killed more than 40 Indian security personnel.

"Radio communication of Pakistan Air Force. confirms that one of the F-16s that attacked India on February 27 did not return to its base", local media quoted IAF sources as saying. Time for India to speak the truth about false claims & actual losses on their side including the second aircraft shot down by Pakistan.

Friday turned out to be a day of embarrassment for the Modi Sarkar as back-to-back disclosures ripped apart Delhi's claim of downing a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet in the February 27 aerial battle over Kashmir.

The Indian Air Force Friday asserted that it shot down an F-16 fighter jet of Pakistan during the February 27 dogfight, refuting a leading U.S. news magazine report contradicting India's claim.

Varthaman was captured by Pakistan and was released after spending almost 60 hours in Pakistani custody.

"They were intercepted by IAF's Su30-MKI, Mirage 2000 and Mig 21 Bison fighters guided by ground radars and AWACS".

Two combat planes went down that day, one was an Indian and the other belonged to Pakistan air force (PAF) the IAF said in a statement.

"All attempts of PAF to attack any targets were thwarted by the IAF". During the engagement that followed, a Mig-21 Bison of the IAF shot down a F-16 in Nowshera sector. Images of the fired missile posted by Pakistan Army show that the warhead of a missile had been initiated by a proximity fuse, presumably after hitting the F-16.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) and the Indian government are yet to respond to the report.

Dawn also reported that Pakistan's foreign office spokesperson Mohammad Faisal said that in the first phase on 8 April, 100 prisoners will be released.

When the incident occurred, India asked the U.S. government to investigate whether Pakistan's use of the F-16 against India violated the terms of the foreign military sale agreements.
