Army asks citizens to assist Rangers in eliminating terror from Punjab

On February 22, the military announced the launch of Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad in response to a spike in terrorist attacks across the country over the past month. The operation aims to indiscriminately eliminate all threats from the country and consolidate gains made during previous military operations.

While Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad is being carried out across the country, the fact that the decision to launch it was taken during a meeting at the corps headquarters in Lahore suggests that Punjab is central to the new offensive. Many observers say the province has long been ignored when it comes to fighting militant groups due to political expediency and other reasons.
