‘Terrorists will not be allowed to regroup, return to tribal areas’

Army chief expresses satisfaction over progress in Zarb-e-Azb

RAWALPINDI – The top military leadership during the Corps Commanders Conference here on Monday reiterated its determination to give every sacrifice for the security of Pakistan, and deter any aggression and not allow terrorists to regroup and return to tribal areas and they will also not be allowed any space across so as to make the country an abode of peace.

The conference was held here at the General Headquarters of the Pakistan Army. Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif presided over the conference. Participants of the conference were given detailed briefing on Zarb-e-Azb military operation and the overall security situation. On this occasion, the army chief expressed complete satisfaction over progress made in the operation so far.

He paid rich tributes to the courage shown and sacrifices rendered by troops during the ongoing operation. He emphasised on the need to consolidate operational gains made so far which he hoped will also be backed up by long-term counterterrorism and counter-extremism measures by the concerned stakeholders.

Recounting the sacrifices made and cooperation extended by the tribal people in fight against terrorism, the army chief directed all concerned that no stone be left unturned to assist displaced families during their stay outside and in their early return to their homes.

“With blessings of Almighty Allah and wholehearted support of our valiant nation, Zarb-e-Azb will succeed,” General Sharif said.
