RAWALPINDI – The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir can never suppress a just indigenous political struggle for self-determination.
In a statement on Monday, the COAS said that brutalities by Indian Security Forces against innocent Kashmiris in Indian Occupied Kashmir and ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC)/Working Boundary (WB) targeting civilians are highly condemnable.
