The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Army Chief Gen­eral Ra­heel Sharif on Fri­day vis­ited the work­ing bound­ary and Rangers Head­quar­ters in Sialkot and ap­pre­ci­ated the high morale of troops de­ployed there.

Ac­cord­ing to the de­tails shared by the di­rec­tor gen­eral of In­ter-Ser­vices Public Re­la­tions, Ma­jor Gen­eral Asim Ba­jwa, the army chief lauded the ef­forts of troops de­ployed at the work­ing bound­ary for re­ply­ing to the In­dian ag­gres­sion in a be­fit­ting man­ner.

The army chief also vis­ited the Com­bined Mil­i­tary Hos­pi­tal in Sialkot to in­quire about the health of civil­ians in­jured as a re­sult of un­pro­voked by In­dian bor­der se­cu­rity forces.

"In­dia has bla­tantly vi­o­lated the ceasefire agree­ment along the work­ing bound­ary and line of con­trol," Gen Ra­heel was quoted as say­ing. He fur­ther said that In­dian has crossed all lim­its to ter­rorise Pak­istani cit­i­zens and has dis­re­garded the in­ter­na­tional con­ven­tions and norms.

"We can sense that there is def­i­nite link­age be­tween ter­ror­ism be­ing spon­sored by In­dia in var­i­ous parts of Pak­istan and bel­liger­ence along the work­ing bound­ary and line of con­trol," the army chief as­serted.

ISPR also re­leased the fig­ures of Fri­day's ca­su­al­ties stat­ing that eight peo­ple were mar­tyred at the work­ing bound­ary, in­clud­ing one woman and one child. It fur­ther stated that "47 peo­ple were in­jured in­clud­ing 24 women and 11 chil­dren".

Mean­while, In­te­rior Min­is­ter Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said Pak­istan­that se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try has greatly im­proved as a re­sult of Op­er­a­tion Zarb-e-Azb and im­ple­men­ta­tion of Na­tional Ac­tion Plan. He said na­tional con­sen­sus against war on terror is our real strength.

The Min­is­ter said last­ing peace, sta­bil­ity, and de­vel­op­ment in Afghanistan are in the best in­ter­est of Pak­istan. He said we want friendly re­la­tions with neigh­bor­ing coun­tries on the ba­sis of equal­ity. He lauded the un­matched and nu­mer­ous sac­ri­fices ren­dered by the peo­ple of Pak­istan in on­go­ing war on terror.
