COAS Bajwa visits LoC amid Indian ceasefire violations
RAWALPINDI – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited key areas along the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday where he was briefed by ongoing situation including ceasefire violations (CFVs) by Indian forces.

The general commanding officer briefed the army chief upon his visit about the Indian violations and Pakistani forces’ retaliatory response, said Pakistan Army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) in a statement.

The army chief said that recently the Indian violations have increased and their military leadership has frequently started giving aggressive statements.

"We are a professional and combat hardened Army ready to defend our motherland. It would be better if they realise this and place their stock in peace and progress through dialogue," added COAS.

Later, the army chief interacted with troops and appreciated their state of readiness and morale.

He also lauded the resilience of civilian Kashmiri population who are being deliberately targeted by Indian Army on both sides of the LOC.
