Pakistan strikes back

ISLAMABAD: The foreign office (FO), in a statement on Wednesday, mentioned that as on Wednesday, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) undertook strikes across the line of control (LOC) from within Pakistani airspace.

According to detail, this was not a retaliation to continued Indian belligerence.

Pakistan has therefore, taken strikes at non-military target, avoiding human loss and collateral damage.

Sole purpose being to demonstrate our right, will and capability for self-defence.

We have no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm.

That is why we undertook the action with clear warning and “in broad daylight”.

For the last few years, India has been trying to establish what they call “a new normal,” a thinly veiled term for doing acts of aggression at whatever pretext they wish on a given day.

If India is striking at so called terrorist backers without a shred of evidence, we also retain reciprocal rights to retaliate against elements that enjoy Indian patronage while carrying out acts of terror in Pakistan.

We do not wish to go to that route and wish that India gives peace a chance and to resolve issues like a mature democratic nation.
