There’s really no way to sugarcoat it:
India fired at least one supersonic missile into Pakistan.
They don’t want too much blame though, calling it just a “technical malfunction.”
“On 9 March 2022, in the course of a routine maintenance, a technical malfunction led to the accidental firing of a missile,” the statement from the Indian Ministry of Defense began.
“It is learnt that the missile landed in an area of Pakistan. While the incident is deeply regrettable, it is also a matter of relief that there has been no loss of life due to the accident.”
The general report from India seemed to line up with what Pakistan Inter-Services Public Relations Director-General Babar Iftikhar believed to be true.
According to his press briefing:
On March 9, at 6:43 pm, a high-speed flying object was picked up inside the Indian territory by Air Defence Operations Centre of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
From its initial course, the object suddenly manoeuvred towards Pakistani territory and violated Pakistan’s air space, ultimately falling near Mian Channu at 6:50pm.
