The Pakistan Army on 19 November claimed to have shot down an Indian drone. The drone, the Pakistan army says, was a quad copter and was shot down in Rakh Chakri sector near the Line of Control (LoC).

The new claim has been made a day after Pakistan navy claimed to have 'blocked' an Indian submarine from entering the country's waters. New Delhi strongly denied this claim.

This is what Asim Bajwa, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) tweeted:

A few minutes later, he tweeted again:

Non-stop action at the border

Action at the border has been in constant and unabated supply since the attack on an Indian Army base in September which resulted in the death of 19 Indian soldiers.

Since then, the Indian Army has claimed to have destroyed terrorist launch pads in Pakistan held J&K. Pakistan Army, on their part, has claimed to have killed seven Indian soldiers in retaliation.

Last year, Pakistan Army had also claimed to have shot down an Indian drone which it had claimed was being used by the Indian Army for spying on them.
