The Pakistan army has started preparing for a possible conflict. After reports of the administrations issuing advisories for people residing in areas close to the LoC, it has been reported that the Pakistan army has instructed hospitals to be ready for emergency medical support.

As per a report in Times of India, the Pakistani army based in the Headquarters Quetta Logistical Area (HQLA) has written to the Jilani hospital on February 20 to arrange and plan for large scale medical support in the looming possibility of a conflict with India.

The hospital in Balochistan has been informed officially by Asia Naz, force commander, HQLA, that in case of an emergency war on the eastern front, the HQLA is expected to receive injured soldiers from civil and military hospitals in Sindh and Punjab. After initial treatment there, these soldiers will be shifted to civil hospitals in Balochistan until the availability of civil-military hospitals (CMHs).

In a press conference later, the army spokesperson stated that their PM Imran Khan has asked them to respond ‘strongly and decisively’ in case of any misadventure from India.

There are also reports of a massive crackdown on Jamat-e-Islami leaders. Security forces have reportedly carried out raids and arrested dozens of Jamat-e-Islami leaders from Srinagar and around.

After the Pulwama attack of February 14 that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF soldiers, there have been expectations of a large scale retaliation from the Indian government against Pakistan sponsored terrorists and its army that sponsors them. Reports already inform that the military grade RDX used in the Pulwama blast was supplied by the Pakistan army.

PM Modi had stated earlier that not only India will take all necessary steps to isolate Pakistan internationally, but it has also instructed the security forces to plan and execute a suitable retaliatory action.
