After the attack, a statement issued by Pakistan army said, “In the early hours of November 4, terrorists unsuccessfully attacked Mianwali airbase. Pak soldiers foiled this attack and killed 3 terrorists. Three terrorists were surrounded there. Three fighter planes and one fuel bowser were damaged in this attack.”

Three planes parked inside the Air Force base were damaged in the attack and a fuel bowser also occurred, the army said. An attack on the Pakistani Air Force base is a slap on the face of the country’s security, given the fact that it is infamous globally for harbouring and nurturing terrorists.

Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) of the Pakistan Army said, “A comprehensive joint clearance and combing operation is in final stages to completely clear the area.” According to reports, there was heavy firing between the terrorists, who entered the airbase, and the Pakistan Army. Flames could be seen inside the airbase. Videos related to the attack were also shared on social media.

The responsibility for the attack has been claimed by the Pakistan-based terrorist group Tehreek-e-Jihad Pakistan (TJP). Unverified videos of the attack are being widely shared on social media. Earlier, when former Pakistan PM Imran Khan was arrested, his party supporters also attacked Mianwali airbase. His party supporters had also set an aircraft which was parked outside the airbase on fire.
