Speaking to the forum, the COAS said with an overwhelming support of the entire nation, operation Zarb-e-Azb has inflicted significant damage on terrorists.
Emphasizing the continued precision targeting of terrorists squeezed in isolated pockets in FATA, COAS directed all concerned to intensify IBOs against criminals, terrorists and their abettors in Urban areas for enduring peace in the country.
The Army Chief said terror free Pakistan is now a national resolve. “Thousands of innocent Pakistanis including our children have been martyred by terrorists/extremists”.
He said law enforcement agencies and our brave armed forces have given lot of sacrifices in fighting these misguided and hardened criminals to safeguard a peaceful and better future for our next generation.
General Sharif said that these sacrifices will not go waste. “We will take this war to its logical conclusion. Dignity and honour of our country, its people and gallant armed forces will be safe guarded at all cost”, he added.
COAS said surge against terrorists and criminals is apolitical, across the board and focused to achieve peace in the country.
