General Raheel Sharif Became Commander In Chief Of Islamic Military Alliance.

According to the report released by The Spectator, in 2013 there were 2,789 killings in Karachi. In the first 11 months of 2016 there were 592. In 2013 there were 51 terrorist bomb blasts. Up to late November this year, there were only two.

Three years ago, Karachi suffered from an orgy of kidnapping for ransom. There were 78 cases in 2013, rising to 110 the following year. This year, there have been 19.

Some 533 extortion cases were reported in 2013; in 2016, only 133. Sectarian killing is sharply down: while 38 members of the Shia minority (who are brutally targeted in Pakistan) were killed in 2013, that figure was down by two thirds in 2016.

In June 2014, General Raheel Sharif (now a national hero, and no relation to prime minister Sharif) took charge of a massive military offensive, Zarb-e-Azb. Terrorist groups responded with a series of atrocities of which the most grotesque was the attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, in which a reported 140 children were killed.

He is the most respectable COAS in the history of Pakistan and the most brave leader thats why raheel sharif became the commander in chief of Islamic Military Alliance.

Oman’s defense minister sent a letter to Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, second deputy premier and minister of defense announcing the decision to join the 40-nation Islamic Military Alliance Against Terrorism, the Saudi Press Agency said. The letter was handed over by Omani Ambassador to the Kingdom.

Prince Mohammed expressed his appreciation for the leadership of Oman to support the efforts of Saudi Arabia in the coalition to fight terrorism. Prince Mohammed will go to Oman in the coming weeks to pave the way for a visit by King Salman, according to well-informed sources.

The King’s trip would help re-establish security, military and economic cooperation, the source said on condition of anonymity. Although not explicitly aimed at countering Iran, the coalition includes neither Tehran nor its allied government in Iraq.

The Sultanate, which sits on the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow waterway between Iran and the Arabian Peninsula through which flows 40 percent of the world’s seaborne crude oil, has a history of constructive relations with Tehran, and sees itself as a mediator in a turbulent region.

“From a political standpoint it’s a Saudi win bringing in Oman back to the GCC fold,” said Ghanem Nuseibeh, founder of London-based consulting firm Cornerstone Global Associates. “It will give Saudi greater regional influence and greater geological leverage.” Another source said Oman had changed its direction in the region after it realized the “lack of seriousness and of benefits” of cooperation with the Iranians.
