Pakistan’s military said Wednesday that it had shot down two Indian aircraft that had entered Pakistani airspace and captured one of the pilots, in an escalation of hostilities just a day after Indian fighter jets crossed the disputed Kashmir region to launch an airstrike within Pakistan.

The claim by Pakistan’s military was not confirmed by the Indian government. Earlier, Indian officials said that one of the country’s fighter jets had crashed within Indian-controlled Kashmir, with the cause being unclear.

There are fears that tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbors could escalate after Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan promised on Tuesday to retaliate for an incursion by Indian jets hours before. Those airstrikes were the first time since 1971 that the Indian Air Force had crossed the Line of Control, the de facto border between the Indian- and Pakistani-held areas of Kashmir, to strike inside Pakistan.

Pakistan’s chief military spokesman, Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, said the country’s air force had shot down two Indian aircraft inside Pakistani airspace on Wednesday morning after they crossed the Line of Control.

Pakistan said on Wednesday morning it had shot down two Indian jets and carried out strikes into its neighbour to demonstrate its right to self defence a day after Indian jets hit its own territory. 

A statement from Pakistan’s foreign ministry, said the Pakistan air force launched strikes across the disputed line of control in Kashmir. 

It said strikes had been taken at non-military targets avoiding civilian casualties. 

The claim came a little over 24 hours after Delhi said it had struck a Jaish-e-Mohammad training camp near Balakot where it said militants were preparing for imminent terrorist attacks. 

Islamabad had denied any camp was struck, but on Tuesday warned India to prepare for a surprise and vowed a “befitting” response at a time and place of its choosing.
