COAS Bajwa calls on PM Imran to discuss security situtation
ISLAMABAD – Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa called on Prime Minister Imran Khan at PM Office on Wednesday.
Security matters were discussed during the meeting, according to a PMO statement.
The high-level meeting comes days after a terrorist attack targeting the Pearl Continental in Gwadar left at least five people dead.
Four hotel employees ─ three staffers and a security guard ─ were killed and a navy soldier was martyred, while six people ─ including two army captains, two navy soldiers, and two hotel employees ─ were injured as Balochistan Liberation Army gunmen stormed the luxury hotel.
The army on Sunday afternoon announced that security forces had completed the night-long operation at the hotel, killed three terrorists and retained their bodies for identification.
The Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), in a press release, also provided a blow-by-blow of the attack and the ensuing operation, saying that three terrorists had entered the hotel with the intent of targeting hotel guests or taking them hostage.
