While India and China are engaged in a bitter border standoff, Indian media quoting their sources claim that Pakistan has started moving its soldiers along the Gilgit-Baltistan area to open another possible front against India.
IndiaToday, quoting its sources writes – Pakistan has moved almost 20,000 additional troops in the northern Ladakh region to match Chinese deployments.
The report further says that Pakistan is looking at an opportunity to open a two-front attack on India. It also claims that Pakistan’s ISI and Army has started deploying battle-hardened terrorists and even planning BAT operations against Indian Army soldiers.
The report also claims that Pakistan could also be planning “internal sabotage” with the nearly 100 Pakistani-backed terrorists inside Jammu and Kashmir. It also indicated that Islamabad could incite attacks against Indian army personnel deployed in J&K.
Meanwhile, as EurAsian Times reported earlier, Indian Army Chief, General M.M. Naravane recently admitted that there is a threat of possible collusion between China and Pakistan against India which could lead to a two-front war.
“Though it can take place at any level, Siachen and Shaksgam Valley are the places where the territory of these two countries meet. The threat of collusion is maximum in the strategically important glacier which forces us to keep our possession,” said General Naravane talking to the media ahead of the Army Day celebrations in the national capital.
