ISLAMABAD - Defence Minister Khawaja Asif on Tuesday stated that revenge shall be taken over the martyrdom of Major Ali Jawad Changezi, who embraced martyrdom after hit by Afghan firing. Asif tweeted that Major Ali’s blood will not go in vain, adding that the enemies of the country want Pakistan to lose the gains it has scored in Operation Zarb-e-Azb. Talking to a TV channel later, Asif stated that Pakistan has always wanted the betterment for Afghanistan but the massacre being carried out in the country traces back to Mullah Fazlullah who is in Afghanistan and has the support of the Afghan govt.

Defence Minister said that the issue will prolong if the Afghan officials do not allow the Pakistani forces to manage the border affairs. ‘Afghanistan will have to be answer if our blood spills,’ he said.
