PESHAWAR: Pakistan military offensive against the Taliban militants in restive tribal areas is progressing successfully, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) spokesman said.

According to Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa, Director General ISPR, Pakistani armed forces have cleared Mir Ali, Miranshah, Razmak areas of North Waziristan from the militants.

“You people would have been hearing about recent airstrikes these days…the air raids are being conducted in Datta Khel area,” he said.

Ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azb is in progress against all kind of terrorists in which over 1,100 militants have been killed so far, Bajwa emphasized.

“The action would be taken indiscriminately against each militant no matter which group he belongs to,” the DG ISPR said.

On a query, he lamented the fact that Kabul has not cooperated the way they should have to root out terrorists in Kunar and other areas of Afghanistan.

Responding to another question, military's spokesman said that no timeframe can be given at this stage as to when Operation Zarb-e-Azb would end.

More than 44 militants have been killed so far, while over 100 terrorists have surrendered to the military in Khyber Agency, where the spokesman said Operation ‘Khyber 1’ is underway.

While issuing an advisory, the DG ISPR urged the local public to inform Frontier Corps regarding any suspicious person or activity in their respective areas.

He said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has chalked out a security plan for the holy month of Muharram.

The provincial government has requested Pakistan army to deploy troops in 134 sensitive localities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“We will send military personnel wherever needed as per the government’s request,” Bajwa added. -Samaa
