ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif 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.
COAS 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 today’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”.
