Operation in North Waziristan progressing successfully
Analysts say entire nation is united against the terrorists.
Thirteen terrorists were killed and seven of their hideouts destroyed during latest air strikes in North Waziristan.
A huge cache of arms and ammunition was also destroyed.
Participating in Nuqta-e-Nazar program of Radio Pakistan’s News and Current Affairs Channel, defence analyst Lt. Gen (Retd.) Amjad Shoaib said: “Pak Army has destroyed terrorist hideouts in North Waziristan Agency. But there are still some areas where operation has to be launched. Nation and Pak Army are on one page in the war against terror and there is no disagreement on any aspect. Political parties have also supported Pak Army. Some terrorists have crossed the border and entered into Afghanistan. Pak army is going forward in operation with success. It is good news that nation is united against terrorists but neighboring countries are not cooperating with Pakistan in this regard.”
Participating in the program, DG FDMA Arshad Khan said : “Cash amount to IDPs is paid through mobile phone SIMS which have already been provided to them. They just have to present their National Identity Card to bank staff to receive the amount. Besides, they are also being provided other necessities of life including medical facilities, food, clean water etc.”
Journalist Aqeel Yousufzai said: “Pak Army has been fighting against terror for last many decades. It is first time that Pak Army has decided and started full scale war in cooperation with Pakistan Air Force. Provincial government of KPK is providing facilities to IDPs despite its limited resources.”
