Chief of Army Staff General (COAS) Qamar Javed Bajwa, during a visit to the forward areas at Chamb Sector along the Line of Control on Wednesday, asked troops to extend all-out support to the local population affected by unprovoked Indian ceasefire violations, according to Inter-Services Public Relations.
“Remain steadfast, discharge your duties with utmost sincerity and devotion,” the Army Chief was quoted by ISPR.
Interacting with officers and men, Gen Qamar appreciated them for their continued vigil and remarkable operational preparedness.
He was briefed on the latest operational situation including Indian ceasefire violations, deliberately targeting local residents living near the de facto border. Commander Rawalpindi Corps Lt-Gen Azhar Abbas received the COAS upon his arrival at the Line of Control.
The Indian occupation forces have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-calibre mortars and automatic weapons along the LoC and the Working Boundary.
This year, India has committed over 2,500 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in the martyrdom of many innocent civilians.
