SRINAGAR: Pakistan has begun planning its war logistics on its frontiers amid fears of retaliation from India after the Pulwama terror strike, even as Jaish-e-Muhammed chief Masood Azhar asked the Imran Khan regime not to make any concessions under pressure from India.

TOI has accessed two official documents, one by the Pakistani military based in Balochistan and another a notice sent to local administrations in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), which reveal that the neighbouring country has begun preparations for war with India.

akistan army based in Headquarters Quetta Logistics Area (HQLA) in Quetta Cantonment wrote to Jilani Hospital on February 20 to arrange and plan for medical support in view of the possibility of a war with India.

“In case of emergency war on the eastern front, Quetta logistics area is expected to receive injured soldiers from civil and military hospitals of Sindh and Punjab. After initial medical treatment, these soldiers are planned to be shifted from military and civil public sector to the civil hospital in Balochistan till the period of availability of beds in CMHs (civil military hospitals),” the letter to Jilani hospital’s Abdul Malik by one Asia Naz, force commander, HQLA, said.

The instructions also asked private hospitals to earmark 25% of their beds for the said purpose along with the allied facilities. The letter ended with the claim: “We have received an overwhelming response from all over Pakistan and anticipate the same from Balochistan.”

The PoK government letter also advised residents to take “safe routes whenever commuting” besides avoiding congregation. “Those residing near the LoC and (those who) do not have bunkers should get one made immediately,” it said, adding that they should also avoid unnecessary lighting at night.
