Peshawer Corps Commander Lieutenant General Nazir Ahmed Butt visited Rajgal Valley in  Khyber Agency – the battleground of Operation Khyber-4 under Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad.

According to the ISPR, Lieutenant General Nazir Ahmed Butt appreciated the morale of the troops and directed them to expedite the sanitisation of cleared areas and strengthen border posts.

He also interacted with troops deployed on the forward posts.

Operation Khyber-4 was launched by the army in mid-July.

“A full division of the army, including artillery, aviation and backed by Pakistan Air Force, is taking part in the Rajgal operation,” ISPR DG Major Gen Asif Ghafoor told journalists while announcing the operation.

The operation in Rajgal Valley, he said, was critical since it could provide a key route to Da’ish terrorists operating from Afghanistan to establish their foothold in Pakistan.
