ISPR DG rebuffs Indian COAS’ claim of destroying 3 alleged camps in AJK

Rawalpindi (Web Desk): Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor has rejected Indian COAS’ statement claiming destruction of 3 alleged camps in AJK.


“Indian COAS’ statement claiming destruction of 3 alleged camps in AJK is disappointing as he holds a very responsible appointment. There are no camps let alone targeting those. Indian Embassy in Pakistan is welcome to take any foreign diplomat / media to ‘prove’ it on ground,” Asif Ghafoor said in a series of tweets.

“The propensity of false claims by senior Indian military leadership especially since Pulwama incident is detrimental to peace in the region. Such false claims by Indian Army are being made to suit vested domestic interests. This is against professional military ethos,” he added.

“Typical of Indian media falsely claiming targeting of alleged camps. Get access to IOJ&K & have moral courage to cover damages caused by Pak Army. All your previous claims met their fate so shall this one. Follow journalistic ethos of Pak Media for reporting with responsibility,” he added.

The ISPR chief said the Indian Army was targeting innocent civilians in “an attempt to justify their false claims of targeting alleged camps”.

At least nine soldiers of the Indian army were killed and many others were injured after Pakistan Army troops gave a "befitting response" to Indian ceasefire violations in Jura, Shahkot and Nousehri Khuiratta and Kotkhetera Tatta Pani sectors along the Line of Control.
