LAHORE: Pakistan Air Force (PAF) on Thursday carried out its routine “High Mark” exercise involving landing of F-16 aircrafts on motorway near Lahore.

A section of motorway from Sheikhupura to Kot Abdul Malik has been closed for the war drills.

“High Mark” is the Pakistan Air Force’s largest and most comprehensive exercise and is held about every five years. The last exercise lasted for 40 days and covered air defenses across the entire country. Recently it has included army and naval units.

Officials said JF-17s, F-16s, F-7s and Mirage aircrafts are featuring in the drill, which according to officials, has no connection with recent Pak-India tension that rose following militant attack on Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir.
