USA asks India and Pakistan to 'exercise restraint'

Pakistan Says It Shot Down Two Indian Jets, Captured Pilots In Kashmir Escalation

The Indian Air Force has claimed to have shot down a Pakistan Air Force' F-16 fighter jet in retaliatory fire 3 Kilometers within Pakistan territory in Nowshera sector.

The cause of the crash is still unknown.

Similar instructions to take down all incoming military targets have been sent to all units and quick-reaction fighters at forward bases have been put on war alert.

Indian officials said three Pakistani jets had also entered Indian airspace, before being intercepted and forced turned back.

He said, "We encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost" and noted Pakistan's priority was to avoid military action and take "meaningful action against terrorist groups operating on its soil."Earlier Wednesday, it appeared the bitter rivals were looking to lower the temperature with renewed diplomatic outreach".

A day after the Indian Air Force hit terror camps in Pakistan, reports suggest that Pakistani jets have reportedly violated Indian air space.

And it's this sense of incompleteness that has driven Pakistani policy and helped drive Pakistan's claim to Kashmir. "I once again invite India to come to the negotiating table", the prime minister said in a televised address to the nation hours after two Indian warplanes were shot down by Pakistani fighter jets in Pakistani airspace.

India's airstrikes were the first to be employed on its neighbor's territory since the two countries went to war in 1971.

Pakistan denied there had been casualties, but warned it would respond to Indian aggression.

Earlier, senior Indian police officer Munir Ahmed Khan said an Indian Air Force plane crashed in Indian-controlled sector of Kashmir.

"No Indian movies will be released in Pakistan", he wrote on Twitter.

The Himalayan region has been divided between India and Pakistan since independence in 1947.

Troops have also been shelling across the LoC.

Officials on the Pakistani side said at least four people had been killed and seven wounded, though it was unclear if the casualties were civilian or military.

It would never have crossed the mind of United States military strategists that the war against terrorism in Afghanistan would continue to rage for 17 years, he said while referring to the longest, deadliest and costliest war in American history. It accused Pakistani soldiers of firing mortars and missiles "from civilian houses, using villagers as human shields".

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Wednesday night that his country had nothing to do with the February 14 attack.

"Following the Pulwama terror attack, instead of taking seriously the calls by the global community to act against Jaish-e-Mohammad, Pakistan denied any knowledge of the attack and outright dismissed claims by JeM", she said.

The escalation in tensions comes weeks after 44 Indian military personnel were killed in a vehicle bomb attack that was claimed by a Pakistani-based militant group.
