“We will eliminate all remnants of terrorists, their abettors and accomplices whatever is the cost,” the army chief was quoted by the military’s media, the ISPR, as saying while presiding over the 247th Corps Commanders’ conference at GHQ on Wednesday.
Rawalpindi: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has reaffirmed their commitment to ensure peace and stability in the country, reiterating that the terrorists’ “desperate attempts for revival” won’t be allowed to succeed.
Last week in Balochistan, security forces killed 20 terrorists in clearance operations after they attacked two security camps in the Panjgur and Naushki districts of the province. Nine security personnel were martyred while repulsing the attacks, according to ISPR.
“We will eliminate all remnants of terrorists, their abettors, and accomplices whatever is the cost,” the army chief was quoted by the military’s media, the ISPR, as saying while presiding over the 247th Corps Commanders’ conference at GHQ on Wednesday.
According to a statement issued by Inter-Service Public Relations, the forum was given a comprehensive briefing on the security situation in the country especially on recent terrorism-related incidents in Balochistan. The participants were apprised of the measures being undertaken to counter “hostile efforts to destabilize Pakistan”, it added.
The top military brass also paid tribute to the martyrs who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the defence of the country while valiantly repulsing recent terrorist attacks in Balochistan and inflicting heavy losses on the enemy.
The COAS expressed satisfaction over operational preparedness of the formations and safeguards in place to thwart designs of inimical forces. “We have come a long way in our fight against terrorism. The armed forces, with the support of the nation, have conducted successful operations against terrorists of all hue and color,” he was quoted as saying at the meeting.
Gen Qamar also directed all formations to concentrate on maintaining high standards of basic military training to ensure effective execution of operations in conventional / sub-conventional domains.
The top military huddle took place a day after Prime Minister Imran Khan paid rich tributes to the martyrs of last week’s terrorist attacks on security camps in Naushki and Panjgur districts as well as the troops who repulsed the attempts, saying that the “entire nation is standing with them” and that their sacrifices and bravery would not go in vain.
