2 Pakistani jets attempted to enter Indian airspace, foiled
On Thursday, two Pakistani jets attempted to enter Indian airspace in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch area but intervention by IAF forced them to return.
Tensions between India and Pakistan have been regularly escalating.
Backstory: Pakistan saw India's pre-emptive strike as "act of agression"
On Tuesday, Pakistan was rattled after IAF carried out a discreet attack on Jaish-e-Mohammed's biggest camp in Balakot. Unwilling to accept its hands in terrorism, Pakistan said India acted aggressively and spoke about acting "accordingly".
Looking at what Pakistan said on Wednesday's development
About Wednesday's operation, Pakistan said it wasn't looking to escalate tension or retaliate but wanted to send across a message that it can defend itself.
Pakistan also claimed it carried out the operation in "its airspace".
Addressing the media, Pakistani army spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor claimed they arrested two Indian pilots, but later retracted to confirm only one was in their custody.
