Pakistan Army has become the most battle-hardened military with an unprecedented level of successes in war against terror and is equally ready for conventional war, Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif said on Saturday.
He made these remarks while visiting the Sulemanki sector of Line of Control (LoC) where he spent the day with the personnel of army and Rangers including war veterans, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.
