RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Friday successfully test-fired a Short Range Surface to Surface Ballistic Missile Hatf II (Abdali), as part of a process of validation of land based ballistic missile systems.

Hatf II (Abdali) has a range of 180 kilometres and can carry nuclear as well as conventional warheads with high accuracy. The weapon system with its varied manoeuvrability options provides an operational level capability to Pakistan's strategic forces.

The test was witnessed by Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Chairman General Khalid Shameem Wynne, Strategic Plans Division Director General Lieutenant General (r) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, Army Strategic Forces Command Commander Lieutenant General Tariq Nadeem Gilani, senior officers from the strategic forces and scientists and engineers of strategic organisations.

End.
