Investigation has revealed that the drone used in the attack was being operated from across the border. Airforce station can be seen on Google Earth, so there is no point in doing recce of the area.
3. According to the information, not only the Air Force station was the target of the terrorists, but on the night of 26-27 June, two suspicious drones were also seen in the Kaluchak Military Area. Both the drones were seen at different places. The soldiers also fired bullets to bring them down, but they disappeared taking advantage of the darkness. According to the defense spokesperson, if the soldiers had not shown promptness, the terrorists would have been successful in carrying out another attack.
4. This drone has been seen in Sunjwan Military Brigade last night between 3.00 to 3.30 pm. This is the second incident of drone sighting around a military station in Jammu and Kashmir in the last 24 hours. Earlier on Monday, drones were also seen at Kaluchak Military Station. These drones were fired upon by the security forces, after which they returned in the dark. According to the information, the drone seen on the Sunjwan Military Brigade was flying at a high altitude. A white light was visible, which was moving continuously.
5. Teams are still looking for clues as to which route the drone used to drop the bombs. Officials said the drone dropped the explosive material and moved either across the border or to some other place during the night. The air distance between Jammu airport and the international border is 14 kilometres.
6. Investigators have scanned CCTV footage, including cameras mounted on the airport’s boundary wall, to find out where the drones came from. However, all the CCTV cameras were installed on the roadside. Drones cannot be detected by radars deployed in border areas to monitor the movement of firefighters. He indicated that a separate radar system could be installed that could detect even a drone as small as a bird.
7. Over 300 drones and unidentified flying objects (UAVs) have been sighted along the sensitive border with Pakistan since the abrogation of Article 370 in 2019. Central agencies have claimed this. Border units of the BSF and various police units have followed a standard operating procedure of ‘look and kill’ when drones, unidentified flying objects or remotely operated aircraft are seen in the air along the 3,323 km long range.
