04 October 2019
- IAF Chief said small drones has been used from Pakistan to drop weapons on the Indian side. Small drones are a new threat and some procurements are already in process to tackle the issue.
- Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria said that there is a possibility of another Balakot type strike: If there is a terror strike (from Pakistan), it will be responded as per the government decision on it.
- A fresh proposal has been submitted by the US, UK, and France at the United Nations Security Council to designate Masood Azhar, chief of Jaish-e-Mohammed, a global terrorist. The proposal getting approved would mean that Masood Azhar will be tagged as a ‘UN-designated global terrorist’ as also he will face a global travel ban, an arms embargo, and asset freeze.
- It takes 10 working days for the Security Council Sanctions Committee to consider the proposal. As China has repeatedly blocked a similar proposal in the past by the US, UK, and France, his reaction is uncertain as of now.
