Islamabad [Pakistan], Sept. 29 (ANI): Strongly condemning the ceasefire violations along the Line of Control, Pakistan on Thursday rejected India's claim of surgical strikes.

"The valiant Armed Forces of Pakistan have given and will continue to give a befitting response to any aggression. Pakistan also rejects the baseless Indian claim that it has "carried out surgical strikes into Pakistan," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Dubbing the news of the surgical strikes as 'falsified', Pakistan said, "Such falsified, concocted and irresponsible statements can only escalate the already fragile security situation in the region."

Pakistan further alleged that India has deliberately escalated tension at the LoC in order to divert attention from the continued deteriorating situation in the Valley.

"It is trying to make fool of its own people and the international community. We can assure India that any such aggression will not go unanswered or unpunished. Pakistan is ready to defend its people and territory from any Indian aggression or Indian State sponsored terrorism on Pakistani soil," the statement added. (ANI)
