Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Nadeem Raza visited army air defence ranges near Karachi and witnessed the firing of different air defence weapon systems, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Wednesday.

The CJCSC witnessed the firing of air defence weapon systems and surface to air missiles (SAMs), including LY-80 Missiles and FM-90 Missiles, the military's media wing  said in a statement.

The firing marked the culmination of the army's air defence exercise "Al-Bayza-II", said the statement.

Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Zaheer Ahmed Baber Sidhu and China’s Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong were also present during the exercise.

Chairman JCSC was given a detailed briefing on the aim and objectives of the exercise — including drills and procedures — being practiced, the ISPR said.

Gen Raza appreciated the display of high standards of training by the troops and emphasised the importance of air defence in modern warfare.

Earlier, upon arrival at firing ranges, Chairman JCSC was received by Commander Army Air Defence Command Lieutenant General Hamood Uz Zaman Khan.
