Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

A general note- structure being intact can actually be worse for the people inside. The blast wave and the fireball will be contained inside the building walls and not get out.
Survivors will have massive tissue damage from blast and fire.

Unless PAF decides to never cross into Indian airspace, they can expect their pilots to be in Indian hands at some point. Their pilots too n...
