Pakistani pilots who shot-down 10 Israeli jets

On August 14, Pakistan celebrated its 65th Birthday. One thing missing during the celebration, as in the past, is media’s not mentioning of stories of many Pakistani pilots who acted beyond their duty to defend brotherly Arab nations from Israeli attacks.

During the so-called ‘Six Day War (1967) which generated American Jewish support for the Zionist entity for the first time – Pakistani pilot Saiful Azam joined tiny Jordanian Airforce. On June 5, Saiful Azam engaged four Israeli jets over Jordanian Mafraq air base. He shot down a Mystére commanded by Israeli pilot H. Boleh and damaged another that crash-landed in Israeli territory. Two days later, Jordanian airforce commander sent Saiful Azam to help Iraqi airforce. While piloting the Iraqi Hunter Azam shot down two of the Israeli attacking planes. Pakistani pilots shot down a total of ten Israeli jets during 1967 war without losing a pilot or aircraft.

Saiful Azam, native of East Pakistan – joined Bangladesh Air Force in 1971. Both the US and Israel helped India to create Bangladesh out of East Pakistan. Saiful Azam has the unique honor of the only pilot in the world who downed four Israeli jets – and served in four airforces; Pakistan, Jordan, Iraq and Bangladeshi. He also hold world record of shooting-down three kinds of military aircrafts in two different air forces.

During October 1973 Israel’s Yom Kippur war on its Arab neighboring countries – A squadron of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) arrived in Syria to fight alongside the SAF and halt the Israeli advance over the Golan Heights. The PAF pilots Sattar Alvi and Arif Mansoor, engaged and shot down an Israeli F-4 Phantom over Egyptian airspace. Another dogfight between the PAF and IAF over Syrian airspace came to a memorable end with Pakistan obliterating the Israeli Mirage IICJ flown by M. Lutz with air-to-air missiles. This was enough to convince other Israeli fighter planes to bug out and abort all further incursions into Syria.

Other Pakistani pilots who joined Syrian force as volunteers included future Air Marshal Nur Khan, Salem Metla, Shahbaz Khan, Wisaam Faris and Wisaam Shuja’at. Late President of Syria Hafiz Assad awarded two of the pilots country’s highest decorations for gallantry.

Pakistani air force states that all its 12 volunteer pilots scored direct hits against Israeli aircrafts and suffered no losses. During the 1973 war, Flt. Lt. A. Sattar Alvi became the first Pakistani pilot, flying a Syrian aircraft to shoot down an Israeli Mirage in air combat. Similarly on the Egyptian front, PAF pilot Flt. Lt. M. Hatif , flying an Egyptian MiG-21 shot down an Israeli F-4 phantom in an air combat. Pakistani Air Force did not lose a single pilot or aircraft in any of the wars.

  1. US helped Pakistan NOT the other way round? You are the one spreading Lies Arif Khan

  2. Indeed, you have it backward, rehmat1. The USA gave arms, fighter jets, and sent advisors to….Pakistan, not India. I know. I am retired USAF and have several friends who were stationed in Pakistan during those years and I have personally worked with the PAF while deployed to south-west Asia. America has nearly always supported Pakistan over India and will continue to do so as long as Pakistan is not used as a base for terrorism against the USA.

    • Backward – Did your Talmud tell you to keep lying all the times? Washington provided military hardware to Pakistan in order to ward-off USSR influence while India was sitting in Moscow’s lap eating all kinds of Jewish candies.
      Pakistan fought four major war wars with India – and every time Washington stopped supply of spare parts for the military equipment it sold to Pakistan – under pressure from the powerful Jewish Lobby.
      Both CIA and Israeli Mossad played a major part in the break-up of Pakistan into Bangladesh.

  3. mr. rehmat have you ever been to bangladesh in your entire life? do you have any idea about bangladesh and the honesty and courage of bangladeshi people? why you uttering the lies provided by your pathetic government since 71? pakistan was a concept rather than a geography, an idea which was materialized by the joint force of muslims in the sub cont. and of-course where the bengali muslim of east bengal had the leading role, history testifies that strongly. pakistan was a co-operative form of union, where its for everybody’s benefit and well being, it did not happen, west pakistan was obsessed with becoming a superpower and claimed themselves as the successor of Mughal empire, introduced luxurious and lavish, sumptuous life style at the cost of its people, where the major financial contribution used to come not from the west but east. while its majority people were dying starved, it assumed west as the “true” pakistan and determined to make east “correct” through ethnic cleansing, and urdu colonization in bengal to control bengali nation who were majority in the whole population, yet the west refused to recognize our position and contribution, and all these happened only within 23 years since the birth of it, and you know what, its not India or israel but its the bloody “you” who made pakistan failed and broken. its not 71 but 47 when Bangladesh was created, when its own map was created apart from yours, its your imprudent action that made that very map independent in if you are a true muslim, then act like a muslim, search for true knowledge and remorse for the sins you have done, otherwise you are no better then the heathens of america, israel or india. thanks and good luck.

    • Shalom Moshe -Yes I have not only lived in Dhaka for two year but I was the Project Engineer of the Pakistan State Bank Headquarter in Motijheel. My residence was in Mirpur near the residence of Sheikh Mujib-ur-Rehman.

      Now tell me, have you been to Bangladesh or even out of India?

  4. sheikh Mujib ur rheman was traitor like today akbar bughati,s sons are in Baluchistan when Mujib got Bangladesh successfully have was being killed in Bangladesh as he has lot of secrets india & russia played a vital role and american become silent playgoer that time Pakistan realized that he has no friend but his own army ,who is a huge threat for chicken hearted Israel ,India ,American, which are the Criminals of the world

  5. According to Our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) Our army will definitely fight against India (ghazwa-a-Hind) and then they will move to Palestine & Syria to Destroy & Eliminate the Dirty mind ,coward & cruel Israel from the holy land of the Muslims of Arab.

  6. Thanks for yr article. Wow, didn’t know that. No wonder Pakistan is being destabilised left & right by MOSSAD and CIA. See these great circle lines….our teams have been compiling these over known MIHOP disasters by the Zionists. We call these lines ZEAD short for Zionist Evil Axes of Disasters. Pakistan seems to bear the brunt of it. Kudos.

  7. Bengali had the right to voice against the dictatorship of the PA Generals. They showed that despite odds they prevailed and the Pakistani “drunk” and cowardly Generals were stripped down of their arms and valour in front of world cameras. What India did for Bangladesh was in its own interest but the 1971 war proved that Indians had better Generals and we had better soldiers upto Lt. Colonel levels. It means that PA is still a tactical army and its “amateurish” Generals must refrain from adventurous undertakings. Let’s concentrate on building the economy, infrastructure, population control, education and health. And please get rid of those Mullahs and their military allies that are hatching schemes against neighbouring countries. Before starting to blame me or calling me names, I come from a military family and taught politics and military strategy in North America. I love Pakistan and Pakistanis as much as any patriot and I believe in the Mohammadi Islam, not Salafi, Hunmbali or Wahabi or any other. With all due respect the first person who calls me gaddaar or kafir must look inside his shirt discover that his heart is impure and full of gaddri and kufr because no body has the right to call any body any of those things. Sheikh Mujib wanted to get rid of General Yahya khan and he won the election fair and square. He should have been the first elected Prime Minister of Pakistan.

    • But…. but darling if you had read history of British Bengal, you would have learned that it were Bengali “Mullahs and Khawaja’s of Dhakka who created the All India Muslim League in a bid to get rid of British and Hindu domination in the Bharat created out of 5,000 princely states by Muslim invaders from Afghanistan and Iran.

      Sheikh Mujibur Rehman was an opportunist groomed by the first chief minister of Indian West Bengal, Suharwardy (1892-1963). Mujib had no problem with Gen. Yahya Khan. He even promised the General to keep him Governor-General if Awami League made the new central government in Islamabad. Mujib’s real problem was PPP’s Bhutto who wanted to be the new prime minister of Pakistan by hook or crook. Later events proved that both Mujib and Bhutto were Indian poodles bent on destroying Pakistan as an Islamic State. Both were corrupt secularist who loved whiskey.
