Pakistan will reportedly deploy its fleet of Chinese JF-17 fighters to a newly developed airfield located closer to the north western border of India, according to a report by India Today.
The report says that the country has developed a modern airfield in Bholari for military aircraft operations along the Gujarat border, in the Hyderabad district of Pakistan's Sindh province.
