Pakistan’s military released a video of its successful test of a surface to surface ballistic missile early Thursday, after it closed three aviation routes in Karachi airspace amid tensions with India.
Pakistan successfully carried out night training launch of surface to surface ballistic missile Ghaznavi, capable of delivering multiple types of warheads up to 290 km p/s.
Federal Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday that Prime Minister Imran Khan was considering a “complete closure” of Pakistan’s airspace to India.
Pakistan’s actions come after escalating tensions between Islamabad and New Delhi since Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi revoked Jammu and Kashmir’s special status, stripping it of some of the autonomy the Indian-administered region had.
Indian politicians have long argued that changing Kashmir’s status will help fight terrorism there and boost the region’s economy. They have promised that the rights of locals will remain protected, and their safety maintained.
