Press Release

Rawalpindi- July 17, 2017

Weekly hotline contact between Pakistan and Indian DGsMO took place today.  DGMO Pakistan notified Pakistan’s demarche to Indian DGMO to protest deliberate targeting of Pakistan Army’s vehicle resulting into Shahadat of 4 Soldiers besides injuring one soldier and a civilian passer by.

DGMO Pakistan Army, Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza emphasized the importance of controlling tactical actions of under command troops, since these indiscretions can potentially spiral major standoffs.  Such acts have the potential to escalate which then will be extremely detrimental to peace and stability.  While we don’t want to go down the path where we start choking each other’s supply lines; however, any such recurrence will invoke more strong and effective measures from Pakistan’s side. DGMO Pakistan Army concluded.
