“Not even a quadcopter will be allowed to cross LOC, In Shaa Allah,” he continued.
It’s not the first time an India drone has been intercepted while violating Pakistani airspace. Last year in October, an Indian quadcopter “spying across LOC in Rakhchikri sector” was shot down by Pakistan Army shooters.
In November 2016, a similar UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) that intruded into Pakistan was shot down in Rakhchikri sector.
Although Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, on November 29, had welcomed Pakistan’s peace initiative of opening Kartarpur Corridor, in the same breath, he had threatened the innocent Kashmiris, saying that Kashmiris should stay ready to bear harms caused by Indian drone attacks, adding that the strikes may go even beyond the Line of Control (LoC) towards Pakistan.
The Indian Army Chief is known for statements that reek of hostility against Pakistan. In November, he had said that India needs to take stern action against Pakistan, adding that “India will have to respond to Pakistan in their language without resorting to barbarism”.
Responding to Indian COAS Bipin Rawat’s threatening statement, Pakistan Army’s spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor had said that the country’s soldiers were ready to respond to Indian misadventures.
