In a significant revelation, Tehreek-e-Jihad Pakistan has released visual footage of the recent attack on Mianwali Airbase in Pakistan, challenging earlier claims made by the Pakistan Air Force regarding the extent of damage. The video showcases the aftermath of the attack, providing evidence of the destruction caused to several military aircraft that were housed in hangars.
The attack, carried out by nine Islamist militants, targeted the air force training base located in the central Pakistani area of Mianwali. Contrary to initial reports by the Pakistan Air Force, the visual evidence suggests that the damage was more extensive than initially acknowledged.
High-resolution imagery, along with the released video footage, confirms the destruction of at least one aircraft shelter and significant damage to several others on the west apron of the base. In total, there are 27 aircraft shelters on the west apron, and the recent attack has had a notable impact.
The military had initially stated that three non-operational aircraft were damaged in the attack. However, these aircraft are not visible in the satellite imagery. The discrepancy between the initial reports and the visual evidence raises questions about the extent of the damage and which aircraft were affected.
The Mianwali Airbase is known to operate Chengdu F-7, including a trainer variant, and it is standard practice to keep active aircraft in hangars for protection. The visual footage has called attention to the condition of the military aircraft stored in these hangars.
Furthermore, the imagery revealed a large parking area containing disused trainer jets, including FT-6 and FT-7 models, located in the south-western corner of the base. This has prompted questions regarding the specific aircraft that were damaged in the attack and their operational status.
The conflicting claims and visual evidence have fueled a growing curiosity about the actual impact of the attack on Mianwali airbase. The discrepancy between the PAF’s statement and the footage’s portrayal of the incident has raised concerns about transparency and the need for a more accurate assessment of the damage sustained during the attack.
