The DG ISPR, Major General Asif Ghafoor has warned India against mistaking “our desire for peace as weakness”.
“India is working on a plan and that’s why it staged a drama of surgical strike. Armed forces and the people are ready to respond to any misadventure by India.”
“Over 70,000 Pakistanis have sacrificed their lives since the launch of war against terror in Pakistan.
We will continue to render sacrifices until the country is put on the desired level of progress,” head of military’s media wing, Major General Asif Ghafoor said while addressing a press conference in General Headquarters of the Pakistan Army.
Delving into the details of the anti-terror efforts, the DG ISPR said around 26,000 intelligence-based operations (IBOs) and combing operations have been conducted by the armed forces since the launch of war against terror.
“Over 3,000 IBOs were conducted in Balochistan,” he said.
Maj-Gen Ghafoor said as a result of the effective campaign against terrorism launched by the Army in 2008-9, far-flung areas of the country including tribal areas have witnessed an improvement in the law and order situation. “At least 84 per cent of temporarily displaced persons from these areas have safely been repatriated,” he said.
