KOTLI: Indian spy planes allegedly violated Pakistani airspace in the Nakyal sector in Kotli, Azad Kashmir on Wednesday, Express News reported.
The Indian planes continued to fly inside Pakistani air space for several minutes until planes from Pakistan took to the air, leading to a retreat of the Indian planes.
The incident comes amidst a spate of recent cross-border skirmishes between the two nuclear-armed neighbours who have fought three wars since independence from the British rule in 1947, two over the Muslim-majority region of Kashmir.
Previously, two Indian fighter planes had entered Pakistan’s airspace near Head Sulemanki border on June 11.
The two sides agreed to a ceasefire along the LoC in November 2003, but skirmishes have flared across the heavily-militarised Line of Control (LoC), the de facto border in Kashmir, in recent weeks, with both sides blaming each other for having violated the agreement.
