Pakistan test-fires 'smart weapon' for PAF's JF-17 Thunder fighter jet

The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has successfully test-fired indigenously developed extended range smart weapon from JF-17 multi-role fighter aircraft, ARY News reported Tuesday. An enormous explosion bursts out across the arid landscape as a powerful shockwave punches through the sky.

Lauding the efforts of Pakistani scientists and engineers, Air Chief Marshal, Mujahid Anwar Khan, Chief of the Air Staff, Pakistan Air Force congratulated the PAF personnel on the achievement of this monumental indigenous capability.

Amid mounting outrage, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting the biggest JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26.

Both India and Pakistan have equipped their militaries with nuclear weapons since they last went to war in 1971, raising fears that a future conflict could escalate into a nuclear exchange.

India and the United States sought "tangible and irreversible action" by Pakistan against terrorist groups and leaders, with the USA national security advisor saying Washington stands shoulder-to-shoulder with New Delhi in its fight against terrorism.

The downward spiral in bilateral relations began after India conducted an airstrike on an alleged camp of the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed's (JeM) on Pakistani territory late in February. "The FM assured me that Pakistan would deal firmly with all terrorists and will continue steps to deescalate tensions with India", Bolton said on Twitter. The objective of the call by Bolton was to get Pakistan's perspective on the recent regional developments, a Foreign Office press statement said.

Contrary to Indian claims that Pakistan used F-16s to down Indian planes, the CNN report said it was a JF-17 fighter jet that brought down an Indian warplane in Azad Jammu and Kashmir. Neither New Delhi, nor Islamabad has commented on the matter.
