"There are no F-15 fighters in our air force": Pakistani comments on data on alleged air strikes on Panjshir


Immediately after the capture of Panjshir by the Taliban terrorist group (* banned in the Russian Federation), representatives of the so-called Afghan National Resistance Fund FANR accused Pakistan of direct military assistance to the Taliban *. As the Military Review reported the day before, the remnants of the troops of Ahmad Masud, who retreated into the mountains, said that Pakistani special forces landed near the Salang Pass, and almost the entire territory of the Panjshir Valley was bombed by shock Drones Pakistani army.

After that, in a number of Western media, referring to the troops of Masud, materials appeared, which claimed that Pakistan used not only drones, but also fighters to bomb the Panjshir. These statements are actively disseminated by Indian media, including fairly large channels. The Pakistani Air Force is said to have assisted the Taliban with airstrikes.

It all started with this video publication on the network, which was replicated by many media outlets:

The title of the publication suggests that this is a Pakistani Air Force plane in the Panjshir sky.

However, after a while it turned out that this is not true. The video publication has nothing to do with Afghanistan. The footage shows a fighter that took part in training flights at low altitude in the UK. The location of the maneuvers is also indicated. This is the so-called Machinletta Loop in Wales, which is one of the actively used training zones for pilots of the British and American military aviation... The Mach Loop is a series of valleys in Wales surrounded by mountains.

Moreover, the fighter in the presented frames is an F-15 aircraft. There are no such fighters in the Pakistan Air Force.

Pakistan responded to publications in foreign media:

There are no F-15 fighters in our air force. The information about our inflicting missile and bomb strikes on the Panjshir is fiction.

      What does Israel have to do with Pakistan, as always, with the Taliban.
      The Pakistani military launched attacks on the Afghan resistance forces.

      The Afghan National Resistance Front began to suffer very serious losses after the Pakistani army joined the Taliban strikes. It is known that the Pakistani military is using drones, fighters and helicopters, which the resistance forces simply cannot fight due to the lack of air defense systems in their armament.

      It is known that over the past 12 hours the Pakistani Air Force has inflicted at least XNUMX strikes on the National Resistance Front forces, as a result of which the main positions of the militias, which had previously prevented Taliban terrorists from capturing Panjshir, were destroyed. This does not rule out the likelihood that terrorists will launch powerful new attacks on the region held by the resistance forces this afternoon.

      It should be noted that the resistance forces are armed with light attack aircraft, however, due to the intervention of Pakistan, they practically cannot be used.

    And why everyone is attached to Pakistan, just because it is with China on a short leg. And UAVs made in China.

        It looks like a victory for the bearded, a redistribution of interests is taking place in this region. We will not hear it yet. India is becoming not at all comfortable.

    India is again in its role, then China blames Pakistan ... It's time to think for ourselves, as if by constant accusations of its neighbors and a lot of vector policy, Armenia did not take it into account ...

    In any event, you need to look for someone who benefits. Perhaps the Turks are trying to expand their zone of influence and have agreed with the Taliban. So they can get a green corridor to the Caucasian republics. Or perhaps it is the Americans themselves, so that Afghanistan would have become completely one big problem in the region and not a single force would be left capable of becoming a counterweight to the Taliban. That is to say - we could not, we will do it so that others do not get it.

    Actually, what's the difference who helps your opponent? Especially when you yourself are trying to attract the United States and the entire West. Fight well and you will win.
