Commander Rawalpindi Corps Visits Troops Deployed at LOC
Commander 10 Corps Lieutenant General Nadeem Raza visited troops deployed at various sectors of LOC and expressed his deep concern and sorrow over recent deaths of two minors as a result of deliberate firing by Indian Army. He said ‘targeting innocent civilians living peacefully along LOC is a very non professional and inhuman action by Indian Army’. While interacting with soldiers, he lauded the motivation and spirit of the troops and said that ‘our professional ethos and moral obligation bars us from responding in kind, as same civilians (our blood) are living on other side of the LOC’. Commander 10 Corps also acknowledged the resilience, sacrifice and high morale of our civilian population who stand by their Armed Forces in defence of motherland. He also appreciated the effective and befitting response by our troops.
Earlier on arrival, he was received by Major General Azhar Abbas General Officer Commanding 12 Division followed by a detailed and comprehensive briefing regarding prevailing situation at LOC.
Corps Commander also visited Rakhchikri sector and expressed deep concern over recent ceasefire violations by Indian Army targeting innocent civilian population. He appreciated effective and befitting response by own troops. While interacting with troops and civilian population of the area, he lauded the motivation and spirit and said that the only restraint for us is the professional ethos and moral obligation, which bars us from responding in kind when Indian troops target innocent civilians.
He expressed satisfaction over affective and befitting response by own troops inflicting heavy losses to the enemy.
Corps Commander also visited CMH Rawalpindi and enquired about the health of the injured persons.
