DG ISPR and Asif Zardari reply on Bail Of Ayyan Ali And Dr Asim
Updates on Operation Raddul Fasaad were a major focus of the Army’s Monday briefing. Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said the Frontier Corps, Balochistan had conducted an intelligence-based operation on April 15, during which prepared explosives were recovered.
In Fata on April 16, two major operations were conducted during which a large cache of weapons was recovered from the Kurram and Orakzai agencies. “In Sindh, operations are underway. Operations being conducted in Karachi are slightly different. Year after year, target killings and crime rate in Karachi have been decreasing,” he said.
“Another aspect of Raddul Fasaad was to bring stability to the western border,” Ghafoor said. “A small area in Fata – Rajgaal, Khyber Agency and Shawal is yet to be cleared. An operation will be carried out when the weather improves, he added.
