Pakistan Says Indian Aircraft Bomb Its Territory
Maj. Gen Asif Ghafoor, a military spokesman, said the Indian "aircrafts" crossed into the Pakistan-controlled Muzafarabad sector of Kashmir, which is split between the two countries but claimed by each in its entirety.
He said Pakistan scrambled fighters and the Indian jets "released payload in haste," near Balakot, on the edge of Pakistani-ruled Kashmir.
Balakot police chief Saghir Hussain Shah told The Associated Press that he had sent teams to the area, which he described as a mostly deserted wooded area.
"There are no casualties, there are no damages on the ground because of the dropping of the bombs," he said.
Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi condemned the incursion, saying New Delhi "endangered" peace in the region for political gains.
"We are a responsible nation and our forces are capable to defend each every inch of our motherland," he told a local television channel.
