Pakistani Military Claims It Shot Down 2 Indian Jets

A spokesperson for Pakistan's military claimed that it shot down two Indian fighter jets that  entered Pakistani airspace  within the disputed region of Kashmir Wednesday.

India's government  later confirmed  that one of its jets was "lost" and its pilot is missing.

The official didn't comment on Pakistan's claims about shooting down a second Indian plane.

Tensions between the two countries have been escalating following  a Feb.

14 attack  on a convoy of vehicles carrying Indian soldiers, which left at least 44 dead.  India blamed the terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed for the attack.

Its main goal is to separate the Indian-controlled area of Kashmir from the country and unite it with Pakistan.

Earlier this week, India  said its military planes  crossed over the Line of Control that divides Kashmir and bombed one of the terrorist group's outposts in Pakistan.

It's unclear how effective the attack was, though — India says it demolished the camp, while Pakistan claims the bombs missed their targets.

In a televised speech Wednesday, Pakistan's prime minister reiterated a previous offer  to hold peace talks  with India but warned he's fully prepared to ramp up military actions against the country if forced to.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
