KARACHI/ISLAMABAD: India has prepared itself to wage an attack against Pakistan under the Cold Start doctrine as tensions soared between the nuclear-armed adversaries over occupied Kashmir, sources confided to Geo News early Wednesday.
The neighbouring arch-rival has prepared itself to attack specific targets for which it completed the first stage of its war doctrine, said sources. Indian jets used in wars and for surgical strikes have reached forward bases under the first stage and the enemy forces are only two stages away from mounting an offensive.
Pakistan has also readied itself to fully react to any aggression by the war-maniac adversary. “It has been made clear that if an attack takes place, it would be responded befittingly. Pakistan would not initiate the process, however, it would also not allow India to cross the red line,” they said.
In a telephonic conversation held a few hours ago, the civil-military leadership expressed satisfaction over Pakistan’s capability to respond to any attack
Measures are being taken with regard to Pakistan’s counter-strategy to defend itself and if an attack is launched from across the border then it would be fully thwarted. The suspension of flight operations in country’s north and sealing of various passages also came as part of the same strategy.
The tensions between the nuclear-armed adversaries have soared recently over deteriorating situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK). Over 100 innocent Kashmiris have been martyred and 8000 wounded by the occupying forces in recent incidents of violence.
Pakistan is up for pursuing the case peacefully in the United Nations as PM Nawaz Sharif on Monday and Tuesday held meetings with the world leaders on the sidelines of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly.
But, it seems that the neighboring arch-rival has some other agenda to prevent Pakistan from raising voice over IoK atrocities by engaging it in a short-term war.
