New Delhi, Feb 28 : After India foiled Pakistan’s attempts of targeting military installations,the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force said they were fully prepared and in a heightened state of readiness to respond to any provocation by Pakistan.

Speaking on Balakot Operation during tri-services briefing,Air Vice Marshal RGK Kapoor said,”We have evidence to show that whatever we wanted to do and targets we wanted to destroy, we have done that. Decision to show the evidence is on senior leadership.Whatever we intended to destroy, we got that result.”
“Happy that our pilot who had fallen across LoC is being released. Once he has been handed, we will decide the future course of action,” Kapoor added.

Major General S.S. Mahal said that PAF’s targets on Wednesday included a Brigade Headquarters, a Battalion Headquarters and logistics installations in Jammu and Kashmir.

But their designs were foiled because of the high level of preparedness by the Indian armed forces, he said.

He said Indian weapons systems had been put on high alert and mechanized forces had been placed on standby. “We are fully prepared to respond to any provocation.”

Rear Admiral D.S. Gujral said: “The Indian Navy is deployed in a high state of readiness and remains poised in three dimensions — surface, under the sea and in air to deter, prevent and defeat any misadventure by Pakistan in the maritime domain.

“I can assure you of a resolute, swift and strong response by the Navy whenever needed.”
