ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that today the nation pays rich tribute to Pakistan Air Force (PAF) for a befitting response to the Indian violation of Pakistan’s air space on the pretext of false flag Pulwama attack.
“While we aim for peace with all, we are mindful of our duty to defend the Country,” the prime minister wrote on Twitter.
“Let no one make any mistake about it,” he said expressing the resolve to make the Country’s defence impregnable
Meanwhile, the fourth anniversary of Operation Swift Retort is being observed on Monday to pay tribute to the Country’s armed forces which on February 27, 2019 gave a befitting response to the Indian failed misadventure and shot down their two fighter jets namely MiG-21 and Su-30.
Meanwhile, in a statement, the military leadership has also paid tributes to the resilience of the nation and resolve of the armed forces displayed during Operation Swift Retort.
In a tweet, the Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry said that under the pretext of false flag Pulwama attack, India staged a cowardly attack on a fictitious target in Pakistan but the daring, resolute and measured response from Pakistan thwarted Indian nefarious designs.
“Let this day be a reminder that while being a peace-loving nation, Pakistan armed forces are ever ready, not only to defend every inch of motherland, but to take the fight back to the enemy, if ever, aggression is imposed on us. Any delusion resulting into a misadventure will always be met with full might of Pakistan armed forces backed by a resilient nation. Pakistan Zindabad,” he said.
