RAWALPINDI: The chief of army staff (COAS) general (Gen.) Qamar Javed Bajwa urged the officers, Wednesday, to make consistent efforts to keep abreast with modern developments and maintain cutting edge advantage as superiority in modern day battlefield can only be maintained if we remain alive to contemporary challenges and are prepared to tackle them in line with emerging modern concepts.

According to an Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) press release, the COAS visited Pakistan Air Force (PAF) air war college institute (AWCI) at Sindh’s capital city.

The AWCI is the highest learning pedestal of PAF.

Addressing the participants of 34th air war course, COAS Gen. Bajwa appreciated thorough professionalism of PAF and its enviable achievements.

“We must remain vigilant to respond befittingly to any misadventure by the adversary,” he emphasised.

Earlier, COAS visited Karachi’s central ordnance depot (COD).

COAS Gen. Bajwa was briefed about up-gradation of existing century old infrastructure of the depot on modern lines for provision of smooth logistics support.

He appreciated the efforts of ordnance corps for its commitment in the field of logistics to enhance operational efficiency.

On arrival at Karachi COD, COAS Gen. Bajwa was received by chief of logistics staff (CLS) lieutenant general (Lt.Gen.) Azhar Saleh Abbasi and corps commander (CC) Lt.Gen. Nadeem Ahmed Anjum.

Separately, the security forces conducted an intelligence based operation (IBO) on confirmation of presence of terrorists in a hideout in Mirali in north Waziristan last night.

According to an ISPR press release, on Wednesday, three terrorists of Aleem Khan Khushali group were killed.

The killed terrorists were involved in target killing, kidnapping for ransom, extortion, fire raid on security forces and improvised explosive device (IED) explosions.

The sanitisation of the area was carried out.
