Hybrid warfare poses a significant threat to Pakistan’s security due to its multifaceted nature. This form of warfare combines conventional military tactics with unconventional methods such as cyberattacks, disinformation campaigns, economic coercion, and support for proxy groups. Pakistan, situated in a geopolitically sensitive region, faces challenges arising from hybrid warfare tactics employed by various state and non-state actors.

Hybrid challenge

The country has experienced a blend of conventional and unconventional threats, including cross-border terrorism, cyber intrusions, and propaganda campaigns. Hybrid warfare techniques can exploit societal fault-lines and weaken the trust between government and citizens. Pakistan’s efforts to combat hybrid threats involve bolstering cybersecurity capabilities, enhancing intelligence gathering, countering disinformation, and strengthening its military readiness. As Pakistan navigates these challenges, adopting a comprehensive strategy that combines defence measures, technological advancements, and societal resilience becomes imperative.
