Pakistan Issues Nuclear Warning to ’Israel’ over Fake News Story
Local Editor

Pakistan's Defense Minister issued a reminder to ‘Israel' of his country's nuclear capability, in apparent response to a false news story.

Pakistan Issues Nuclear Warning to "Israel" over Fake News Story

Khawaja Muhammad Asif said in a tweet: "‘Israeli' [War] Minister threatens nuclear retaliation presuming [Pakistani] role in Syria against Daesh [ISIS/ISIL]. ‘Israel' forgets Pakistan is a nuclear state too."

Pakistan remained relatively neutral in the Syrian war, though they have placed themselves on the side of the regime, with their Foreign Secretary saying the world's sixth-largest country is "against foreign military intervention in Syria."

But a fake story published on the website AWDnews falsely suggested that Pakistan planned to "send ground troops to Syria as part of an international coalition to fight against Daesh".

The anonymously-authored story then features an apparently invented quote from former ‘Israeli war minister Moshe Yaalon, who resigned in May this year, saying: "If, by misfortune, they arrive in Syria... we will destroy them with a nuclear attack."

Pakistan is one of nine states officially considered to possess nuclear weapons, with its stockpile estimated at around 130 warheads.

‘Israel', on the other hand, neither confirms nor denies having nuclear weapons. However, it is widely believed to have an unofficial stockpile, with one tally estimating the country has around 80 weapons.

Asif previously warned he will use his country's nuclear capability to "annihilate" India "if our safety is threatened". He issued that threat in September of this year, during ongoing violence in the disputed Kashmir border region.
