ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Rangers’ tit-for-tat response Friday forced Indian border troops to take shelter in hidey-holes like mice following their wanton firing on Working Boundary in Sialkot’s Harpal Sector Friday evening.
According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Pakistani gunners sent Indian aggressors packing after the motiveless shelling only a day after Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) Gen Raheel Sharif had issued a tough warning against such violations by the Border Security Force of the neighbouring country.
“Let there be no doubt that any provocation along the Line of Control and Working Boundary will meet a befitting response,” the COAS said Thursday during his visit to Sialkot garrison and forward locations on Working Boundary.
He added that repeated Indian ceasefire violations in the recent past were not only distracting Pakistan in its war on terrorism but also adversely affecting the regional stability.
Gen Raheel was given a detailed briefing by the local commanders about the prevailing security situation at the working boundary.
Later, he toured the towns and villages hit by Indian firing.
“While expressing his heartfelt solidarity, the COAS paid rich tribute to the local residents for showing such resilience under the rain of of India shells,” the ISPR said.
The general also said that the entire nation was standing united along with its armed forces in the defence of the motherland.
