Indian violation of LOC unacceptable, says Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak has said that the violation of the Line of Control (LOC) by India is unacceptable.
In a statement on Tuesday, he said that Pak Army is ready to defend the motherland. “We will not let coward attempts of the enemy succeed,” he maintained.
Earlier today, Indian military aircraft violated the Line of Control as they intruded from the Muzaffarabad sector but were forced to flee due to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force.
The incursion into the Pakistani air space follows a series of threats by Indian political and military leadership after the attack on an Indian Army convoy at Pulwama by a local youth, in reaction to the oppression unleashed by the occupational forces.
