Corps Commander visits LoC

Commander 10 Corps Lt Gen Nadeem Raza while visiting troops deployed along the Line of Control (LoC) in Iftikharabad sector expressed his concern over the "continuous ceasefire violations by Indian troops", and ISPR statement read.

While reviewing and expressing his satisfaction on operational readiness and vigilance exercised by the forward troops, Gen Raza said ceasefire violations by Indian troops targeting civilian populations residing near the LoC was a worrying matter.

Operation Raddul Fasaad

The Pakistan Army had launched Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad earlier this year following a spate of terror attacks in the country, which claimed more than a hundred lives and left hundreds of others injured.

The operation seeks to eliminate the "residual/latent threat of terrorism", consolidating the gains made in other military operations, and further ensuring the security of Pakistan's borders.

Hundreds of suspected terrorists have reportedly either been killed or arrested in raids carried out by security personnel since the start of the operation.
