ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif on Tuesday vowed to avenge the killing of Pakistan Army Major by Afghan armed forces.
“Martyrdom of Major Jawad Changezi will be avenged…his martyrdom will not go in vain,” he said while talking to Geo News.
The minister said enemies wanted to sabotage gains that Pakistan made during Operation Zarb-e-Azb.
Jawad Changezy, who was injured during Monday’s clashes with Afghanistan’s border security forces, succumbed to his wounds on Tuesday. His funeral was also attended by Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif among others before his body was moved to his hometown Quetta where he was laid to rest.
The Afghan forces have been resorting to unprovoked firing at Pakistani posts to disrupt the construction of a gate which Islamabad aims to build in a bid to monitor movement of people crossing the border at Torkham.
