Serhat TUNAR -TDO-Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has threatened Pakistan and said they have the power to raze their neighbors in less than 10 days in a possible war between the two countries.
India and Pakistan, which have fought three times before, had come back from the brink of a fourth war last year in tensions over Kashmir. Speaking to members of the military last Tuesday, Prime Minister Modi said: "Pakistan has lost in three wars. It would take our military no more than 7 to 10 days to raze Pakistan."
Tensions had continued to rise following a suicide attack in Pulwama, Kashmir, in mid-February 2019 that killed 40 Indian soldiers, with accusations of border breach.
During the same period, 'war' rhetoric was heightened when an Indian fighter jet was shot down by Pakistani forces and its pilot taken prisoner.
