At a joint briefing by three services, the Indian Air Force on Thursday presented parts of an AMRAAM missile fired by Pakistani F-16 jets at military installations in J&K’s Rajouri to contradict Islamabad’s claim that it had not used F-16 jets in its aerial strike yesterday. The evidence is crucial to establishing the use of the F-16 jets in the offensive since the US, which sold the jets to Islamabad, doesn’t allow these platforms to be used in an offensive posture. “Parts of AMRAAM Air to Air Missile which is carried only on the F-16s in PAF were recovered East of Rajouri within the Indian territory,” the IAF said.
