Security forces have cleared 90 per cent of the objective area in the ongoing Operation Khyber 4, Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa was briefed during his visit to Rajgal valley of Khyber Agency on Saturday.
“We are heading towards a normalised Pakistan where writ of state and supremacy of law would be second to none,” the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) quoted the COAS as saying.
“Every Pakistani whether in cities, tribal or far flung areas, will be able to play their positive and rightful part in the country’s progress,” the communique read.
Gen Qamar appreciated the professionalism of participating troops, including support of Pakistan Air Force (PAF) in skillful targeting of the terrorists’ strongholds, while minimising own casualties.
Talking to officers and troops, he thanked Allah for His blessings which enabled Pakistan Army to come up to the expectations of the nation in achievements against terrorism and militancy in the country.
On completion of this operation, Khyber Agency would be free of terrorists’ influence thereby providing environment for return of Temporarily Displaced Persons (TDPs) and development programme to proceed.
