For the first time, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) has been targeted by placing explosives to attack an Indian Air Force base. Explosives were dropped near the Mi-17 hangar using two UAVs last night. The intensity of an explosion was so high that a hole broke out in the roof of one of the buildings near the hangar. Jammu and Kashmir Police and NIA are investigating this terrorist attack. It is not yet clear whether the UAV came from across the India-Pakistan border or was being operated from a building near the airbase. But after the terrorist attack, this area has definitely turned into a gray zone war zone.

High walls, barbed wire and army posts are now insufficient to deter terrorist attacks. The enemy can attack from a safe distance. There are drones that can fly up to 20 kilometers and can also take a load of a few kilograms with them. From pizza to bombs, there are many such things that unmanned aerial vehicles can fly thousands of kilometers with them for two days with rockets and bombs. In this attack, the terrorists used Type 1 or Type 2 UAVs. Also Read Disha Patani Soaks In Sun And Water in Sexy White Bikini As She Takes a Dip In Sea
Was India aware of this threat?
For the last two years, Pakistan has been using UAVs to send AK-47 assault rifles, ammunition and drugs to India, especially on the Punjab and Jammu border. Many drones have been sighted in the past and they have also been disabled and weapons have also been recovered.
Can radar detect drones?
According to IAF, radars can detect some military drones but not small quadcopters. Specialized Kurf radars are meant for smaller, slower-flying UAVs, but so far the effort has been to educate soldiers and police on how to identify the threat and then neutralize it.
Will India retaliate?
India has taken extensive steps to neutralize the threat of near-air attack during both surgical strike and Balakot air strike. After the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, India did not retaliate but presented evidence in the court and asked Pakistan to take action against the perpetrators.
How do we keep our belongings safe?
This is a tough challenge for the security forces. Fighter jets can be stored in blast pens, but radars and other equipment are at risk of air strikes. Therefore, in view of the danger, special radar, laser, and anti-aircraft guns will have to be deployed for the sensitive airbase. There are guns that can fire 4600 rounds in a minute so that the threat can be neutralized, the target can be shot down in the air through laser.
Is Pakistan provoking, if so why?
If there is peace between the two countries, then Pakistan Army and ISI will lose their importance. In Pakistan, the army rules the country and it is a permanent threat to India to maintain this power. That is why Pakistan has not broken the India-centric mil-jihad complex. Apart from this, Pakistan also does not want that the efforts being made by PM Modi regarding Jammu and Kashmir in front of the world should prove successful. Pakistan wants violent incidents to continue in Jammu and Kashmir.
Is there any Afghan angle or connection to the blast in Lahore?
Seizure of IED in Jammu and Kashmir and arrest of LeT member who was instructed to explode in a crowded area. Points to LeT although more evidence is needed to be clear if its links are from Lahore. There does not appear to be any Afghan link in this, although the training of LeT terrorists in Afghanistan to operate drones and make IEDs is increasing.
Can India do the same? Pakistan uses terror as a weapon for its issues. India can take precautions to protect its property and areas, but India has so far carried out strong attacks after attacks like Uri and Pulwama to prevent terrorist attacks.
