Airports closed down for a while, now order appears to be withdrawn

It appears that the India Pakistan tensions have only escalated post the air strikes carried out by Indian Air Force at three major terror camps.

As Pakistan claimed that its jets crossed over the Line of Control, it also closed down operations at all major airports in the country.

Government of Pakistan has ordered an immediate stopping of all domestic and international flight operations at airports in Islamabad, Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad and Sialkot.

Meanwhile, international flights that were in transit between Indian and Pakistani airspace have also been affected by the escalation of tensions between the two countries.

The airports were shut as an Mi-17 military chopper crashed in Jammu and Kashmir’s Budgam district earlier today.

On Tuesday, Indian Air Force had carried out air strikes at Balakot in Pakistan, targeting a terror training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group.
