New Delhi: Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa on Monday claimed that Pakistan Air Force fighter jets did not cross the line of control (LoC) into Indian Airspace on February 27 after strike on terrorist camp at Balakot.

He said that India achieved its military objective while Pakistan failed to do so.

 

“I must also tell you on Balakot, they did not come into our airspace,” he asserted.  

The Air Chief said that important thing to consider is what was the military objective of both the Air Forces. “Our objective was to strike Balakot which we achieved. Their objective was to strike our army installations which they did not achieve. That is the bottom line. We achieved our military objective. They did not achieved their military objective. None of them, let me tell you, crossed line of control into our territory,” he said. The IAF had struck a terrorist training camp in Balakot area on February 26.
