The Border Security Force (BSF) on Saturday mentioned it detected two drones crossing the International Border (IB) from the Pakistani aspect and “foiled the intrusion bid” in Jammu’s Arnia Sector.
“During the early morning hours today (Saturday), two drones were observed entering from the Pakistan side and were immediately fired upon by vigilant BSF troops, which compelled their retreat to Pakistani territory,” a BSF spokesman mentioned.
The BSF mentioned the profitable foiling of the intrusion bid “was indicative of alertness and swift retaliatory action by the BSF on a drone intrusion from Pakistani side”.
The BSF spokesman mentioned the intelligence department was receiving inputs about attainable use of drones by Pakistan to ferry arms and ammunition from Pakistan into Indian aspect. “The troops are on alert and the border domination was exponentially elevated,” the spokesman mentioned.
It’s for the primary time since Pakistan and Indian armies renewed the ceasefire settlement in February this 12 months that such an incident was reported along the IB in J&Okay.
In 2020, Pakistan made a number of bids to ferry weapons via drones along the Line of Control (LoC) and IB in J&Okay.
