Raheel has warned India of befitting response if it opts for misadventure.

Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif has warned India that any “misadventure” on its part will be met with the "most befitting response".

General Raheel Sharif’s response comes a day after India conducted surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads based out of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Highlighting the operational preparedness of the Pakistan Army, General Sharif said that Pakistan can't be coerced through malicious propaganda.

"Any misadventure by our adversary will meet the most befitting response from Pakistan. Pakistan can't be coerced through any amount of malicious propaganda," General Sharif said.

According to an Inter-Services Public Relations statement, Gen Sharif, while talking to troops, exhorted all commanders to lay more emphasis on combat readiness. He emphasised that training in peace time is the only guarantor of averting war and winning it if imposed.

The strikes by India came in the wake of the September 18 terror attack at an Indian Army camp at Uri in Jammu and Kashmir which left 19 soldiers dead and many others injured.

Gen Sharif also said that "highest" state of vigil was being maintained along the LoC and all along the International Border.
