Defence Security against Indian attack on 2019 

After the Pulwama incident in Jammu and Kashmir, which was ultimately proven to be the work of a local Kashmiri youngster, 22-year-old Adil Ahmed Dar, who resides in Kakapora on the Indian side of Kashmir, India conducted offensive airstrikes close to the town of Balakot in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. This was a few of kilometres inside the province’s border with Kas, which is governed by Pakistan. Pakistan has pledged to furnish trustworthy evidence.
The Indian aircraft were reportedly intercepted by PAF fighter planes, according to the Pakistani military, which made the initial announcement of the airstrike on February 26 in the morning. The Indian plane then dropped its cargo on a deserted hilltop in the vicinity of Balakot that was covered in trees. On February 27, 2019, a standoff between India and Pakistan began. Pakistan launched a counteroffensive by using the codename “Operation Swift Retort” within Indian-controlled Kashmir to strike six targets close to Indian military installations. During the mission in Indian space, Pakistan used electronic jamming, which disrupted the connection between aerial and ground assistance.
To stop the PAF plane from flying over Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian Air Force fired jets. A fierce fight ensued after the intercept, during which a Pakistani aircraft shot down an Indian MiG-21. Six Indian soldiers were piloting a MI-17 helicopter for the Indian Army Aviation department when an Indian air defence system shot it down, killing all occupants as well as the crew.
While simultaneously shooting down a Pakistani F-16, India claimed to have lost merely one aircraft (a MiG-21). Pakistan refuted India’s assertion and asserted that no F-16s had been sent out. Pakistan would later confirm using F16s but would maintain that none of them were shot down. A Sukhoi Su-30 MKI was also claimed to have been shot down by Pakistan, although this claim was refuted by Indian officials.
