Army Chief telephones Afghan President, condemns university attack
RAWALPINDI (Web Desk) - Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif says Pakistani soil will not be allowed to be used for any type of terrorism in Afghanistan.

He said this during a telephonic conversation with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday.

The Army Chief strongly condemned terrorist attack on the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul yesterday and expressed his sympathies with the grieving families.

The Afghan authorities shared three mobile telephone numbers allegedly used during the university attack, who allegedly were in touch with the assailants.

Based on these three Afghan cell numbers provided by Afghan authorities, Pakistan Army carried out a combing operation in a suspected area closer to the Pakistan-Afghan border to verify the presence of miscreants.

According to the evaluation of the evidence provided and outcome of the combing operation so far, all Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network owned and operated by an Afghan company whose spill over signal affects some areas along the Pak-Afghan border.

The outcome of the op so far has been shared with Afghan authorities.

The Army Chief has assured the Afghan President of all out cooperation on the availability of further information from Afghans.
