International Media released a live footage of pakistan army fighting with talibans. Pakistan’s Army Chief Gen. Raheel Sharif has sounded the alarm over the lack of follow-up by the government to secure hard-won benefits from the military’s operation against the Pakistani Taliban (TTP).
Sharif was speaking on Monday during a corps Commanders Conference at Army HQ in Rawalpindi. A statement by the military’s Inter Services Public Relations media branch said Sharif “underlined the need for matching/complementary governance initiatives for long-term gains of operation and enduring peace across the country. Progress of National Action Plan’s implementation, finalization of [Federally Administered Tribal Areas] reforms, and concluding all ongoing [joint investigation teams] at priority, were highlighted as issues, which could undermine the effects of operations.”
“These Taliban are dug in the caves, so you can’t do it by aerial bombardment,” said Javed Ashraf Qazi, a retired general and former head of Pakistan’s intelligence service. “You have to go in there and physically dislodge them.”
Fake explosive devices are planted around the base, and they detonate when a soldier steps on them by Taliban. Watch video.
