In one video posted on social media, a Pakistani soldier ankle-deep in a stream of water in the disputed Kashmir region can be seen shielding the pilot from angry villagers and shouting "enough" as they pummel his bloodied face and strike blows against his limp body.

Muscat: An Indian pilot shot down and captured by Pakistani military is being treated according to the norms of "military ethics", according to a senior Pakistan spokesman.

The pilot steadfastly refused to answer any questions related to the mission he was on when his fighter jet was downed. Flight tracking websites showed no commercial flights in the air in Pakistan on Wednesday afternoon and none across most of the Indian states of Punjab, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana and Jammu & Kashmir.

Pakistan has used its Air Force to target military installations on the Indian side.

Quoting Pakistan's aviation agency, ARY News also reported that the flight operations would remain shut until further notice. "India also expects his immediate and safe return", the MEA said in a statement. "One of the aircraft fell inside AJ&K while other fell inside IOK [Indian occupied Kashmir]", Pakistan army spokesman Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor said.

"But, I hope that our IAF Wing Commander captured today (Wednesday) comes back home soon..." He had said earlier that two pilots were captured, but did not explain the discrepancy.

"We don't want this to escalate to mutually assured destruction", Hali said, while admitting that his nation would be at a disadvantage in an all-out fight.

India registered a strong-worded objection to Pakistan's unwarranted advances into Indian airspace before the latter's Acting High Commissioner, Syed Haider Shah.

"Our action is just to let them know that just like they intruded into our territory, we are also capable of going into their territory", he added.

After reportedly begging for Khloe and Kylie's forgiveness, it's now been claimed Jordyn is blaming the bad situation on alcohol. A source told People: "It seemed she had an agreement with Tristan that they would deny hooking up if they got caught.

"You have two nuclear powers who have a long history of tension squaring up against each other and now in the start of some kind of military conflict".

Eyewitnesses said soldiers fired warning shots into the air to keep residents away from the crash site.

"PAF shot down two Indian aircraft inside Pakistani airspace", he said in a tweet.

Local officials on the Pakistani side said at least four people had been killed and seven wounded, though it was unclear if the casualties were civilian or military.

"I spoke with Indian Minister of External Affairs Swaraj to emphasize our close security partnership and shared goal of maintaining peace and security in the region", Mr. Pompeo said.

India has not confirmed the pilot's identity.

"If India is striking at so-called terrorist backers without a shred of evidence, we also retain reciprocal rights to retaliate against elements that enjoy Indian patronage while carrying out acts of terror in Pakistan".

Indian officials acknowledged that one of its planes had gone missing. An Indian military statement said that "out of anger and frustration", Pakistan "initiated unprovoked cease-fire violation". It is also the responsibility of the worldwide community to come forward and play its role as the war will cause irreparable damage to both the countries as well as the region. Further military activity will exacerbate the situation, the spokesperson said.
