Pakistan warns of ‘10 surgical strikes’ against India

Islamabad: Pakistan on Saturday warned of “10 surgical strikes” against India in response to a single such attack, in the latest war of words between the two estranged nuclear-armed neighbours. Major General Asif Ghafoor, spokesperson of the military’s Inter Services Public Relations, stated this while talking to the media in London, where he is accompanying Pakistan Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa on a visit. “If India dares to launch a surgical strike inside Pakistan, it will face 10 surgical strikes in response,” Ghafoor was quoted as saying by Radio Pakistan.

He also said “those who think of any misadventure against us should have no doubt in their minds on Pakistan’s capabilities”. The military spokesman said the Pakistan Army was the custodian of the $50 billion China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and the mega project will strengthen the economy of the country.

Ghafoor said the Army wanted strengthening of democracy in Pakistan, and claimed the general election in July was the most transparent in the history. “If anyone has evidence of rigging then it should be brought forward,” he remarked.
