RAWALPINDI: Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Thursday said the continuous ceasefire violations by Indian forces along the Line of Control (LoC) is an “unsuccessful attempt” to distract Pakistan from its own anti-terror war.

Talking to troops at forward positions on the LoC in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK), General Raheel said the battle hardened Pakistan Army is successfully handling “two different knids of war” and is capable of defending every inch of the beloved motherland.

The COAS greeted soldiers on Eidul Azha in advance, while appreciating their morale, professionalism and valiance in defending the motherland and for giving a befitting response each time Indian troops resort to unprovoked firing across the LoC and the Working Boundary.

Expressing solidarity with the civilians living in bordering villages, the army chief paid rich tributes to their resilience and sacrifices in braving Indian aggression.

He reiterated that Pakistan Army will provide all necessary assistance to civilians affected by such aggression.
