Agency News

Islamabad, Mar 4 : Air Chief Marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan, on Monday cautioned the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) officers that they should keep their "guard up" as the challenges facing the nation 'are not over yet'.

"We bow our heads in complete humility and express our gratitude to the Almighty for giving us strength to come up to the expectations of our resilient nation,” the air chief said, referring to last week's tensions between India-Pakistan, Dawn reported.

He further said "The challenges are not over yet, and we should keep our guards up and always be ready to respond to any aggression from the adversary."

Last month, amid heightened tension between India and Pakistan following an attack on Indian security forces in Kashmir's Pulwama district, Air Chief Marshal Khan had said that the PAF would "thwart any misadventure by the enemy" and was ready to respond to any incursion with full force as per the aspirations of the nation.
