Pakistan Army chief Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday appreciated troops of the Peshawar Corps, as well as law enforcement agencies such as Frontier Corps and police, for bringing stability to the erstwhile tribal areas.
Visiting the Peshawar Corps HQ, he also hailed the “sacrifices of local populace for peace and their earnest support to armed forces in war on terrorism,” according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR). During the visit, he was given a detailed briefing on the prevailing security situation, border management including ongoing fencing efforts, as well as capacity enhancement of the Frontier Corps and police in the erstwhile tribal areas.
