The report also says that in an unprecedented move, the army has placed snipers at the airbase. Nikunj Garg of Times Now said that the request to deploy army at the airbase came from the Indian Air Force itself. He said that snippers are posted on the top of ATC tower as well as fire safety towers.

The report says that security forces are not only suspecting a ground-based attack, but also attack from the air using drones, gliders or other kinds of aircraft. Nikunj Garg said that the fact that snippers have been deployed points to the threat of an air-based attack, as if the intelligent reports were about attack from land route only, increasing protection around the airbase would have been enough.

What kind of snipers can prevent an air based attack?

But Nikunj Garg says "the fact that snipers have been deployed, points to an air based attack".

Balloons? Pigeons or this sometime something new? Flying cows can help the "terrorists" ..... by the way.


Bird shooters 😜
