The deployment of French-made Rafale jets in Ladakh came less than 10 days after they were formally inducted into the IAF.
Rajnath Singh said induction of Rafale jets into the IAF is crucial considering the kind of atmosphere being created along India's border.
Ten Rafale jets have been delivered to India so far and five of them stayed back in France for imparting training to IAF pilots.
The first batch five Rafale aircraft had landed at the Air Force Station in Ambala from France on July 27.
The Rafales are armed with Meteor beyond visual range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) and Scalp cruise missile.
Aircraft at that altitude are to maintain a distance of at least 600 meters (2,000 feet) to ensure they don’t hit each other, though planes traveling that close can encounter wake turbulence.
The first squadron of the aircraft will be stationed at Ambala air force station, considered one of the most strategically located bases of the IAF.
