Army expresses concern over the safe havens of the Taliban in Afghanistan

Six terrorists killed

The military has expressed concerns over the safe havens of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Afghanistan, The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Friday. 

The ISPR further said operations against terrorists would continue unabated and the armed forces “shall not rest till the menace of terrorism is rooted out from the country”.

“It is expected that the interim Afghan government would not allow the use of its soil to perpetrate terror against any country, in the real sense and in line with commitments made in the Doha agreement,” the statement added.

The statement came following the Chief of Army Staff Gen Asim Munir’s visit to Quetta Garrison. During his visit, General Asim Munir was briefed on a recent attack on a military installation in Balochistan’s Zhob Cantt.

“The COAS paid rich tribute to the Shuhada, visited the injured soldiers at CMH, Quetta, lauded their services to the nation and appreciated their resolve,” the military’s media affairs wing said in the statement.
