Pakistan conducts successful launch of Ghauri missile system

Pakistan on Monday successfully conducted a training launch of the Ghauri Missile System, said the army’s media wing.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the launch was carried out by the Army Strategic Forces Command (ASFC) to test their operational and technical readiness.

Commander ASFC Lieutenant-General Mian Muhammad Hilal Hussain appreciated their standard of training and operational preparedness.

“The launch consolidates Pakistan’s nuclear capability which is aimed at peace and stability through a credible deterrence regime,” added the statement.
