KARACHI: Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa visited forward areas at Chamb Sector along the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday.

The army chief, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations, was briefed on the latest operational situation, including Indian ceasefire violations deliberately targeting local residents living near the LoC.

Interacting with officers and men, Gen Bajwa appreciated them for continued vigil and remarkable operational preparedness. He emphasised upon troops to extend all-out support to local population affected by unprovoked Indian ceasefire violations.

“Remain steadfast, discharge your duties with utmost sincerity and devotion,” the COAS remarked.

Commander Rawalpindi Corps Lt Gen Azhar Abbas received the army chief at the LOC.
