  • IAF has foiled another Indian airspace violation attempt by Pak Airforce, at Bhimbergali sector in the Poonch district of J&K on Wednesday
  • Earlier, Pakistani airforce had also violated Indian airspace at Nowshera district in J&K which was foiled by IAF

Republic TV has accessed a sensational video of Indian Air Force jets flying over the Bhimbergali sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday right after Pakistani jets attempted a provocation by flying close to the Line of Control.

As per sources, the Pakistani jets were immediately picked on the Indian Air Force's radars as they approached close to Indian airspace and several Indian fighter jets were scrambled, going on to once again foil Pakistani's designs as the PAF fighters fled.

This is the third case of Pakistan coming close to violating India's airspace last three days and comes just over a month after the aerial battle over the Nowshera sky in the aftermath of the IAF's strike on Pakistan's Balakot terror base.

Watch the video above.

The video shows a white trail of the Indian Army fighter jets flying across the blue skies over the Bhimbergali sector in the Poonch district of J&K after scrambling Pakistani jets which had attempted to violate Indian air space by crossing the International borders on Wednesday.

Earlier on Monday, Indian radars had detected a large Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and four Pakistani F-16 jets flying close to the border at the Khemkaran sector in Punjab at 3am. In response, the Indian Air Force immediately deployed Su-30 MKIs and Mirage jets sending the Pakistani jets in retreat into their own territory.

The provocation by Pakistan comes just over a month after the PAF's attempt to violate Indian airspace and attack India's military installations a day after the Balakot air strike by the IAF.

The package of Pakistani fighters on February 27 had been far larger than the four that were spotted on Monday morning, numbering over 20. Despite being outnumbered, the Indian fighters broke the Pakistani formation and scattered their attack, ensuring that they missed their target with their bombs. It was in this dogfight that IAF Wing Commander Abhinandan shot down a Pakistani F-16 despite being in a MIG-21 Bison - a fighter almost 20 years older than the US-made F-16.
