NEW DELHI: India is keeping a close watch on the ongoing air combat exercise called “High Mark” in

Pakistan

, which includes manoeuvers to defend against cross-border aerial strikes like the one conducted by IAF against JeM facility at Balakot in February last year.
The major “High Mark” exercise includes extensive night-time flying by F-16, JF-17 and Mirage-3 fighters of

the Pakistan Air Force
