Elections and other private matters have taken a backseat, according to former federal minister Fawad Chaudhry, as tensions between Iran and Pakistan rise as a result of the latter’s decision to conduct an attack within Pakistan.
According to Geo News, he made this statement to the media outside the Islamabad Judicial Complex after appearing in accountability court on a corruption charge.
Fawad was taken into custody from his home in November of last year on suspicion of wrongdoing.
In a televised appearance today, the imprisoned leader called on Pakistanis to support their armed forces in the face of tensions with Tehran.
“We are united on this issue, and the entire country should get united as well,” he declared.
Late on Tuesday, Tehran declared to have launched “missiles and drones.”
The attack close to their common border was condemned by Pakistan.
Following Iran’s invasion of its sovereignty, Pakistan retaliated on Thursday by attacking terrorist strongholds within Iran’s borders.
“In the morning, Pakistan carried out multiple meticulously planned and precisely targeted military operations against terrorist strongholds located in the Iranian province of Siestan-o-Baluchistan,” a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated.
The intelligence-based operation known as “Marg Bar Sarmachar” claimed the lives of several terrorists, according to the statement.
Later, the Pakistan Army released information about the operation against militants in Iran, claiming that the intelligence-based “Marg Bar Sarmachar” operation had effectively targeted the terrorist groups’ hideouts, the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) and the Balochistan Liberation Front (BLF).
In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) announced that Pakistan has successfully launched strikes against terrorists’ hideouts in Iran during the wee hours of Thursday, targeting those who have been behind previous assaults in Pakistan.
Killer drones, rockets, loitering munitions, and stand-off weapons were used in the precision strikes. The greatest precautions were taken to prevent collateral damage, it stated.
