6 min read

According to reports, the top brass of the Pakistan Army reiterated their all-out support Thursday for Palestinians who are being violently oppressed by Israeli occupation forces, who are committing the most atrocities on their people.

In a statement released by the military’s media affairs wing, the commanders also stated that their country supported the people of Palestine unequivocally on a diplomatic, moral, and political level. They reiterated the country’s commitment to a two-state solution based on the pre-1967 borders with Al Quds Al Sharif as the capital of Palestine.

In a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations department (ISPR), the 82nd Formation Commanders Conference (FCC), held at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi on Thursday under the chairmanship of General Syed Asim Munir, Chief of Army Staff (COAS), expressed the same view.

All the corps commanders and principal staff officers of the Pakistan Army attended the meeting, as well as all the formation commanders who are responsible for their respective formations.

Over 15,000 Palestinians have lost their lives in Israeli attacks since the Israeli-Hamas war began on October 7 – including 6,000 children – as a result of the barbaric attacks launched by Israeli forces. As a matter of fact, Tel Aviv authorities claim that 1,200 Israelis, mostly civilians, have been killed, and 240 of them have become hostages as a result of this attack.

As he addressed the huddle, the army chief expressed satisfaction with the operational readiness of the military along with the high standards of training and morale maintained by the formations in dealing with the emerging threat paradigm.

A statement released by the forum noted that the forum paid rich tribute to the supreme sacrifices of martyrs, including members of the armed forces and government officials, as well as citizens of Pakistan.

In addition to discussing professional matters and national security challenges, the participants were briefed on the measures being undertaken to counter traditional and non-traditional security threats and how they are being addressed.

A holistic view was also taken by the forum of the ongoing counterterrorism operations, and it was decided that all terrorists, their facilitators and abettors, who are working on behalf of hostile forces with the aim of destabilising Pakistan, will be dealt with accordingly.

It was also expressed that the participants were concerned over the continued repression of Kashmiris in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and that they condemned the unabated violations of human rights by Indian forces. As a result of the forum, Pakistan reaffirmed its commitment to support Kashmiri people on all levels, including politically, diplomatically, and morally.

According to participants, the only way to resolve the Kashmir issue is to provide the people of Kashmir the right of self-determination as stipulated in relevant United Nations resolutions.

In addition to supporting the government’s efforts to bring the economy back to life and curb illegal activities such as smuggling, hoarding, electricity theft, implementing the one document regime, relocating illegal foreigners dignifiedly and safeguarding national databases, the forum resolved to fully support the government’s initiatives in numerous domains.

Although Pakistan has faced a number of challenges in the past few months, the forum noted that in spite of these challenges, confidence, optimism, and stability have increased in recent months. InshaAllah, it was resolved that by perseverance and positive action, with the support of the people of Pakistan, vested efforts towards engineering despondency will be defeated.

Participants at the meeting pledged to continue to defend the nation and to serve it to the best of their abilities in our endeavors to achieve enduring stability and security for the region.

It was emphasized at the forum that the people must remain united and determined.
