United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May has expressed her concerns regarding the rising tension between India and Pakistan, and urged the two countries to avoid escalation by holding talks and dialogues.

Relations between the two neighboring countries have deteriorated significantly ever since the February 14 Pulwama terror attack, followed by India's strike on terror hubs in Pakistan on February 26. 

And the Britain PM feels that issue between India and Pakistan would be harmful and that the two nations should consider the possibility of diplomatic solutions along with talks.

On February 14, 40 CRPF jawans attained martyrdom after their convoy was struck by an IED blast. The whole attack was orchestrated by terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed, which has its roots in Pakistan.

Despite diplomatic actions taken by India, which came along with global pressure, Pakistan government refused to acknowledge and act against terrorism and such terror organizations.

Indian government and armed forces vowed to teach Pakistan a lesson for harboring terrorism in its soil, and so they did on Tuesday.

The Indian Air Force, in collaboration with Indian Army and senior officials of the govt, including PM Modi, conducted an operation within Pakistan's territory. Three major camps of JeM, including the one in Balakote, were destroyed as 16 Mirage 2000 jets, carrying laser-guided bombs, avenged the Pulwama martyrs.

But just a day later, ie on Wednesday, Pakistan showed its true colors as it sent three of its aircrafts to infiltrate the Indian airspace. But their efforts were thwarted by the Indian army, which shot down one of Pakistan's F-16 and managed to send the other two back.
