Pakistan tests ballistic missile amid Kashmir threat

In a bid to drum up nuclear threat as part of its campaign to internationalise the Kashmir issue, Pakistan announced it had conducted a successful test of the Ghaznavi ballistic missile.
In a tweet, the Inter Services Public Relations wing of the Pakistan military announced a “night training launch” of the Ghaznavi missile and said that it is “capable of delivering multiple types of warheads up to 290km”.
Pakistan President Arif Alvi and Prime Minister Imran Khan had conveyed its appreciation to the team and congratulated the nation, according to the military spokesperson.
In the aftermath of the decision by the Indian government to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir, Imran Khan had sought to project the Kashmir issue as a potential flashpoint for a nuclear war between India and Pakistan.
