NEW DELHI:  A day after Indian army released a video of destroying Pakistani army posts aiding infiltrators across the Line of Control, reports from Pakistan media claim that the Pakistani fighter jets flew close to the Siachen glaciers as Pakistan upgraded its forward airbase of Skardu region.

However, Indian Air Force has denied any violation of Indian air space by Pakistani jets.

According to Pakistani media reports, quoting sources that all forward operating bases have been made fully operational and on Wednesday morning, even fighter jets made flying near Siachen Glacier.

Pakistan’s Air Force chief Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman, who visited Skardu airbase reacted sharply on Indian army’s claims of destroying Pakistani posts, said his forces will respond to any aggression by the "enemy" in a manner that their future generations will also remember it.

In fact, in a tit for tat response, Pakistan army also released a video, hours after Indian army’s video, claiming heavy damage caused to the Indian military posts across.

Calling it desperation on Pakistani side, a senior Indian army official denied of any such damage to any Indian posts in the sector. Refuting Pakistani armyu’s claim, he said that the burst and impact of the fire is not clear in the video of Pakistan army, as normally the impact of a shell is seen, so it seems it was from down below.

“So there is concern that it was blown by them from within,” officer said. Officer added that Indian posts facing Bimber sector, where they claim this occurred, we have hardened concrete bunkers. So the impact on it would be different. Naushera sector faces Pakistan’s Bimber sector and in that sector our bunkers are of hardened concrete. But in the video it does not seem so.

Pakistan Army has claimed that the incident was of May 13. Army sources said that on that particular there was no unusual movement on the LoC.

“They can hide their casualties, But we cannot. Nothing has happened on May 13 and no unusual movement,” the officer said.
