Indian Lies Busted As Pakistan Opens ‘Strike’ Site In Balakot To Foreign Journalists
The Indian ‘airstrike’ site in Balakot region was opened to international journalists, most of them Indian, on Thursday.
Several ambassadors and defence attachés of various countries in Pakistan also visited the site, an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement said. Director-General (DG) ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor briefed the foreign dignitaries about the details of the event and ground realities contrary to Indian claims.
ISPR stated that the visitors were shown bomb craters of denied Indian air strike attempt in barren open spaces with no loss to life or infrastructure. Moreover, the group also visited the nearby Madrassa which India claimed to have ‘destroyed’. The visitors also interacted with students and teachers at the seminary.
DG ISPR said that instead of pursuing false claims, India must act responsibilities and work for peace and stability of the entire region. He also asked India to look into the reasons why situation in occupied-Kashmir was going out of hands.
A group of foreign dignitaries also visited APS Swat, a state-of-the-art education facility with computer and science labs, auditorium and sports stadium.
On February 26, Indian Air Force (IAF) jets entered the Pakistani territory, but dropped payload during a hasty escape after they were chased down by Pakistan Air Force (PAF) jets.
Later, Indian media and government claimed that they ‘killed 300 terrorists’ and ‘destroyed terrorist hideouts’ near Balakot. However, no casualty was reported.
