- Big disclosure in the attack on Jammu Air Force Station
- Drones were used for attack for the first time
- Pak is using drones for the supply of weapons
The two blasts at the Air Force station in Jammu may not have caused any major damage, but the possibility of using drones to drop explosives has become a major challenge for the security agencies. Security agencies are assuming that the explosives for these blasts were dropped by drones. For the first time in the country, a security establishment has been attacked through drones.
The use of drones by the Pakistani side has increased in the last few years. Apart from keeping surveillance, the use of drones for supplying weapons to terrorists has also increased in the last two years. Drones had already become a headache for security agencies, but now drone attacks have raised many questions, as well as made it clear that the security strategy needs to be redesigned. Security experts have been warning about the dangers of drones for a long time.
Drone use has increased since 2019
Pakistan has increased the use of drones since 2019 to supply weapons to terrorists. On 13 August 2019, a drone was caught after it crashed in a village in Amritsar. Then in September of the same year, a terrorist caught in Tarn Taran, Punjab, revealed that the drone had dropped weapons in eight consecutive rounds. On 20 June 2020, BSF shot down a spy drone in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir, along with arms and explosives were also recovered.

On September 19 last year, the Jammu and Kashmir Police arrested three Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists after they had received a drone supply from Pakistan the night before. Then on 22 September 2020, the Jammu and Kashmir Police recovered the weapons delivered from the drone to Akhnoor sector. Then in December, Punjab Police recovered eight hand grenades near the Pakistan border in Gurdaspur district, said to have been dropped by Pakistani drones.

Last month only on 14th of this year, BSF recovered weapons dropped from Pakistani drones in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir. J&K Police DG Dilbag Singh has already said that Chinese-made drones are being used by Pakistani terrorists to supply weapons. A Chinese-made carbine has also been recovered from the weapons dropped from the drone.
