He further added that Pakistan’s armed forces have capability, will, resolve and nation’s support. But because Pakistan is a responsible state and want peace, they decided first of all that they will not take any military targets.”
He said that Pakistani forces decided that there be no loss of life or collateral damage in their engaging of targets. The planes locked targets, then in open air PAF carried out strikes.
