डर के मारे पाकिस्तानी सेना ने भारत का समझकर खुद ही का प्लेन मार गिराया!

पाकिस्तानियों में इस समय भारत का खौफ कुछ इस कदर है की उन्होंने अपने फाइटर प्लेन को भारत का फाइटर प्लेन समझ कर गिरा दिया.

कल से पाकिस्तान के सीमा से सटे इलाकों में हलचल थी कि भारत का विमान पाकिस्तान में 2 बम गिरा कर आया है, दरअसल वो भारत का विमान नहीं पाकिस्तान का एफ-16 विमान था जिसने भारत की जासूसी करने के लिए उड़ान भरी थी, पाकिस्तानियों ने अपने ही जहाज को भारत का जहाज़ समझकर मार गिराया. 😂
