A day after Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar disclosed the arrest of Safoora attackers, army chief General Raheel Sharif has said that noteworthy achievements in operation Zarb-e-Azb have created a space for a decisive surge against terrorists in urban areas.

“War against terrorism and extremism is being fought for future generations,” General Raheel said, addressing officers and students of Command and Staff College during a day’s visit to the institute in Quetta on Thursday, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The COAS said the war against militancy cannot be fought and won alone by the security forces – support from the masses is necessary.

“Only a safer Pakistan guarantees a prosperous Pakistan,” the army chief said, adding that war against militancy cannot be fought and won alone by the security forces but needs support of the masses.

“The war we are fighting and security threats we are dealing with are multi-dimensional, orchestrated and complex,” General Raheel said.

“Modern means of technology need to be adopted to fight the war against terrorism.”
