  • What Accounts for Pakistan’s Troop Deployment to Saudi Arabia?
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have historically had close military partnership in the Middle East, and Islamabad has recently announced that it is sending troops to the oil-rich kingdom on a “training and advice mission,” without specifying the exact role the soldiers will play there.

    Pakistan Army announced the deployment decision after a meeting between Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf Saeed al-Maliki at the army headquarters in the eastern Pakistani city of Rawalpindi on February 15.

    It came after General Bajwa paid a three-day visit to Saudi Arabia earlier this month and met with high-profile officials, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Commander of Ground Forces Lieutenant General Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Abdulaziz.

    It was reportedly the Pakistani commander’s second trip to Saudi Arabia in two months, which apparently played a role in the Pakistani Army’s decision to deploy soldiers to Saudi Arabia.

    There are already 1,379 Pakistani servicemen deployed in Saudi Arabia, most of whom are from Pakistan Army, along with a few Pakistan Air Force (PAF) and Pakistan Navy (PN) officials, according to security sources.

    This is while no official word on the number of additional Pakistan troops being sent to the kingdom has been released. The fresh deployment is said to be slightly over 1,000 soldiers.

    The development is notable because Saudi Arabia has been pushing Pakistan to provide ships, aircraft and troops since 2015 for its devastating military campaign against Yemen.

World War 3: India and Pakistan Leaders Issued with ‘PLEA’ to Halt ESCALATING VIOLENCE

  • World War 3: India and Pakistan Leaders Issued with ‘PLEA’ to Halt ESCALATING VIOLENCE
    by JOSEPH CAREY, https://www.express.co.uk/
    THE LEADERS of both India and Pakistan have been issued with a letter from civil society groups in the two Kashmirs that have come together to request both nations adhere to the ceasefire around the contested border, it has emerged.

    In a letter addressed to both Narendra Modi and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, the Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan respectively, the letter urged the use of dialogue to prevent conflict that could lead to World War 3.

    It told the two figures to “resume ceasefire on borders and begin the process of dialogue to resolve the Kashmir issue by including all the people of Jammu and Kashmir”. The letter urging to halt violence between the two nations comes at a time when ceasefire violations rose to 881 on the borders in 2017. The horrifying figure marks a 230 per cent increase compared with 2016 – it is also the highest count in over 10 years.

India: Pakistan Will Pay for Border Attack

  • PressTV Published on Feb 12, 2018
    Tension is rising once again between India and Pakistan. New Delhi is warning that Islamabad will pay a price for the death of several people along their border. The warning comes after nine people including five soldiers were shot dead by militants in an attack on an Indian army camp in the disputed region of Kashmir. India’s Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has accused Pakistan of supporting what she described as terrorists who came from the other side of the border. Sitha-raman added that Pakistan is expanding acts of terror and violates the ceasefire along the border. Pakistan earlier warned its neighbor against any cross-border strikes. Islamabad also rejected accusations by New Delhi, saying it’s irresponsible to blame others before any investigation is launched.

The Debate: Pakistan Condemns ‘Unilateral’ U.S. Drone Strike Inside Its Territory

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Jan 25, 2018
    “Pakistan will not allow any breach of its airspace or sovereignty.” That was Pakistan’s response to a US drone strike that killed 2 Haqqani-network militants. Pakistan condemned the unilateral action, while in the past it has turned a blind eye to & even helped such attacks. This, though, is a time of heightened tensions with America, which accuses Pakistan of harboring terrorists. Is the US deflecting blame for its failures in Afghanistan? Is it pressured by Afghanistan & India into holding Pakistan accountable for harboring those who threaten their security? Join me, Waqar Rizvi, as we discuss that & more tonight.

  • 40,000 Indians Flee As Fighting Erupts On Pakistan Border
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Along the 786 km-long Line of Control (LoC) which divides the State of Jammu Kashmir between India and Pakistan, sporadic cross-border military gunfire between both countries is not that unusual.

    However, this weekend, in the region of Noushera, Rajouri and Akhnoor sectors of Jammu and Kashmir, more than 40,000 Indians have fled their homes and shops amid the fourth consecutive day of intense shelling from Pakistani military forces, the Economic Times reports.

    In the latest report from Indian 24 News, cross-border firing between both countries continues along the international border in the Kanachak and Pargwal sectors in Jammu, besides the LoC in the Nowshera area of Rajouri district on Sunday evening.

  • World War 3: India Retaliates Against Pakistan Attack KILLING 7 SOLDIERS as Tensions Mount
    by JOSEPH CAREY, https://www.express.co.uk/, 15 Jan 2018
    INDIA has retaliated to an attack from neighbouring Pakistan by killing troops along the Line of Control (LoC) that separates the two South Asian nations, it has been reported.

    Seven Pakistani soldiers were killed and four injured in response to a conflict on Saturday that killed one Indian troop. The conflict took place along the LoC in the district of Poonch, in Jammu and Kashmir.

    The Times of India also reported that the Pakistan army issued a statement saying that four soldiers were killed in the Kotli sector in the Jandrot, an area close to the LoC. The Indian army also announced that it had killed six members of the jihadi group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).

    The Director General of the police in Jammu and Kashmir, Shesh Paul Vaid, said: “We have recovered five bodies from the spot. “I think six have died, one body is being searched for. They belonged to Jaish-e-Mohammad and information was that they are suicide attackers.”

    Mr Vaid detailed that the army had received reports of possible attempts by the organisation to “infiltrate” its Uri sector. He added: “In the past few days, we were getting reports about possible attempts to infiltrate the Uri sector.

  • Who owns/controls India & Pakistan? The Synagogue of Satan. The sheeple think it is war between: Pakistan vs India, USA+NATO vs Russia, USA+allies vs Korea, USA+allies vs China, USA vs Syria+Russia, USA vs Iran …. and so on. In reality: it is Satan and his minions vs the Rest of Humanity. All the various arms of the Illuminati: western Illuminati, Russian Illuminati, Chinese Illuminati … have agreed to this coming Satanic WW3.
  • It is really about the laying of the foundation for the coming of the Anti-Christ, the bringer of false peace, the fake messiah … who will save the world from the Satanic WW3 and bring about the Luciferian New World Order, World Government led by the Man of Sin, Global Supra-National Central Bank –> ‘666’.
  • The sheeple are brainwashed into hating and killing each other by the Satanic illusion, lies … they are presented daily in the Illuminist MSM. Satanists on both sides are brainwashing the sheeple into WW3.
  • For humanity to win this war, it is very simple. Repent of your sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Son of God, for forgiveness of sins and salvation from sins.
  • Pakistan Threatens India With Nuclear War After Indian Army Chief’s Statement
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Hawaii’s ballistic missile attack 
    on Saturday turned out to be nothing more than fat-fingered “fake news” by State officials. However, a far more significant threat of nuclear war is growing on the border between India and Pakistan, called the Line of Control (LoC), which continues to be generally ignored by Western media outlets.


    Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said Friday his military was ready to call Pakistan’s “nuclear bluff” and carry out aggressive military operations across the border.

    “We will call the (nuclear) bluff of Pakistan. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we cannot cross the border because they have nuclear weapons. 
    We will have to call their nuclear bluff,” Gen. Rawat warned, responding to a question during a press conference on the “possibility of Pakistan using its nuclear weapons in case the situation along the border deteriorates,” said the Hindustan Times.


    On Saturday, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif unleashed a Tweetstorm denouncing Rawat’s comments as “very irresponsible. Amounts to invitation for nuclear encounter. If that is what they desire, they are welcome to test our resolve. The general’s doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah.”

    “The threatening and irresponsible statement by the Indian Army Chief today is representative of a sinister mindset that has taken hold of India. Pakistan has demonstrated deterrence capability,” he tweeted.

    “These are not issues to be taken lightly. There must not be any misadventure based on miscalculation. Pakistan is fully capable of defending itself,” he added.

    The spokesperson of Pakistan’s Foreign Office Mohammad Faisal also criticised Gen. Rawat’s comments as very “irresponsible.” Further, the Pakistani army said its nuclear weapons have deterred India from launching another full-scale conventional war, as both nuclear superpowers are playing chicken.

    Escalating the war of words, Pakistan army spokesman Asif Ghafoor said on state-run television, “should they wish to test our resolve, they may try and see it for themselves. We have a credible nuclear capability, exclusively meant for threat from east. But we believe it’s a weapon of deterrence, not a choice.”

    The Line of Control (LoC) refers to a heavily militarized zone in  Jammu and Kashmir, in which it splits some of the India-Pakistani border. In 2017 alone, the Indian Army killed 138 Pakistani troops in tactical and retaliatory operations along the LoC. In the same period, 28 Indian soldiers perished. In late December, we reported on an intense battle between Indian and Pakistani forces leaving 4 Indian troops dead, where it was believed that Pakistan was the aggressor.

Pakistan to United States: We Are No Allies, Not Any Longer! Pakistan Suspends Military And Intelligence Cooperation With US

  • Pakistan Suspends Military And Intelligence Cooperation With US
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    In the wake of President Trump’s twitter outburst last week, alleging that Pakistan has given the U.S. “nothing but lies and deceit” accompanied by the suspension of US financial aid, Defense Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan declared that military and intelligence cooperation with the United States are suspended, during an address at the Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad on Tuesday.

    Khan, who was speaking at a seminar titled: “Contours of Security Environment of Pakistan,’ said the U.S. is now facing defeat in Afghanistan after a 16-year war, despite spending billions of dollars. With defeat imminent, he claims the U.S. is using Pakistan as a ‘scapegoat,’ rather than defending and securing the Pak-Afghan border.

    “Pakistan does not want to put a price on its sacrifices but wants them to be recognized,” Khan added that Pakistan would not allow Afghanistan’s war to be fought on Pakistani soil.

    Military relations between Pakistan and the United States have stretched as far back as 1947. The Afghan-Pakistan Center of Excellence is a division of United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), with military operations sometimes jointly focused on Afghanistan and Pakistan. It’s widely known that CIA drone bases and U.S. military logistical operations for Afghanistan are located in the country.

    Kahn emphasized, “a wide field of intelligence cooperation and defense cooperation have been suspended,” but added the supply lines for NATO troops in Afghanistan would remain open. There was little mention of the fate of CIA drone bases operating in the country.

Pakistan Ditches Dollar In Trade With China In Retaliation For Trump Twitter Meltdown

  • Pakistan Ditches Dollar In Trade With China In Retaliation For Trump Twitter Meltdown
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Less than a day after President Trump slammed Pakistan on Twitter for failure to combat terrorism, stating, “It’s not only Pakistan that we pay billions of dollars to for nothing, but also many other countries, and others,” and after it was revealed that the US will withhold $255 million in aid, Pakistan’s central bank announced it will be replacing the dollar with the yuan for bilateral trade and investment with China. 

    “SBP has already put in place the required regulatory framework which facilitates use of CNY in trade and investment transactions,” the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) said in a press release late Tuesday, ensuring that imports, exports and financing transactions can be denominated in the Chinese currency.

    “The SBP, in the capacity of the policy maker of financial and currency markets, has taken comprehensive policy related measures to ensure that imports, exports and financing transactions can be denominated in yuan,”
     Dawn news, Pakistan’s most widely read English-language daily, announced while quoting the SBP press release.

Pakistan’s State Bank Green Lights Yuan-Based Trade With China

  • Pakistan’s State Bank Green Lights Yuan-Based Trade With China
    by https://sputniknews.com/
    The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) has announced that all arrangements for using the Chinese currency for trade and investment are already in place.

    The central bank of Pakistan has given permission for the Chinese yuan to be used for investment and bilateral trade deals, which will eventually replace the dollar in Pakistan-China trade.

    The increase in trade and investment with China under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) makes it easier for Pakistan to see that CNY-denominated trade with China will increase significantly and will provide with long term benefits for both the countries.

    “SBP has already put in place the required regulatory framework which facilitates use of CNY in trade and investment transactions,” the press release of the central bank stated.

    In late December Pakistan’s Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal said that the government was considering a Chinese proposal to use the renminbi or yuan instead of the US dollar for payments in all bilateral trade.

    The minister further said that China had not stopped CPEC-related investments in Pakistan and all projects had been identified and committed to by both sides. The areas of cooperation include connectivity, energy, trade and industrial parks, agricultural development and poverty alleviation, tourism, people’s livelihood and exchange programs and financial cooperation, Dawn news reported.

    Pakistan and China have also agreed to establish and improve cross-border credit systems and financial services. In the near future plans strengthening currency swap arrangements and the establishment of a bilateral payment and settlement system will also take place.

    Hence with the central bank’s approval this cooperation will take on another dimension as it means that Pakistani and Chinese banks will, in the course of time, be able to open import letters of credit in rupees and yuan.

Pakistan: 3 Soldiers Killed in Indian Shelling

  • PressTV News Videos Published on Dec 26, 2017
    Tensions are running high in Kashmir following the death of three Pakistani soldiers during cross-border shelling in the disputed region. In a statement, the Pakistani army said the soldiers were killed after they came under fire on the Pakistani side of the border. The statement blamed India for what it described as New Delhi’s unprovoked ceasefire violation. There has been no comment from India following the incident. The Muslim-majority Himalayan region has been a flashpoint area since the subcontinent was divided by Britain in 1947. Thousands of people have lost their lives in the Kashmir violence since 1989.
