“The media has a front-line role to play in the fifth generation and hybrid war imposed upon Pakistan,” he said. The army spokesman also sought to clear the air regarding Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement during a recent television interview in which he had said that the army backed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) manifesto. ‘INDIA SHOULD BEHAVE’:Speaking about ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary by Indian forces, Gen Ghafoor said that “India was deliberately targeting civilians”. He also explicitly stated that Pakistan will not fight anyone else’s war, adding that the war was “imposed on the country”. ‘ARMY IS ALSO ACCOUNTABLE’:Maj Gen Ghafoor also asserted that the army is not beyond accountability and there is a chain of command for regularisation as well as a branch tasked with discipline and accountability.
