“The militants suffered heavy loss and dislodged towards bordering areas of Afghanistan,” said ISPR director-general, Major-General Asim Bajwa, in his twitter feed. He said the troops were making a steady progress to cleanse the area.

 

He reaffirmed the commitment of armed forces to the military operation which, according to him, would continue with full force till the complete elimination of terrorists.
