Islamabad: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Tuesday the statement by the Indian army chief regarding alleged terrorist camps in Balakot area of Pakistan were a pretext for a false flag operation.

In a series of posts on Twitter, DG ISPR said, “Irresponsible statements by Indian military commanders particularly about Azad (Independent) Jammu & Kashmir are expression of their frustration due to their failure to handle situation in Indian-Occupied Jammu & Kashmir and attempts to divert world’s attention from Indian state terrorism and siege of Kashmir.”

“Accusations of infiltration/presence of alleged terrorists camps are a pretext for a false flag operation/misadventure which if tried shall have serious consequences for regional peace,” DG ISPR said.

He added Pakistan Armed Forces are fully prepared to respond to any aggression or misadventure regardless of cost.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman also rejected such allegations in a statement issued Tuesday.

“The Indian allegations of ‘infiltration’ from Pakistan reflect a desperate attempt to divert international attention from the humanitarian nightmare in occupied Kashmir being perpetrated by Indian occupation forces,” the foreign office said.

A day earlier, Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat had alleged “reactivation of terror camp” in Balakot.
