Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif has summoned an emergency meeting of Corps Commanders at the General Headquarters (GHQ) in Rawalpindi on Monday, Express News reported.

According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), COAS would chair the Corps Commanders meeting at the GHQ on Monday.

Matters related to internal security and the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan would be discussed during the meeting.

Earlier on Saturday, Director General of Military Operations Maj Gen Amir Riaz briefed the participants of the National Security Conference about the operation and the status of objectives achieved so far, said a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office.

The conference was informed about the areas cleared by the armed forces, and that terrorists were on the run and their command and control system had simply crippled.

“The meeting was briefed that that during the operation and to handle the blowback of Operation Zarb-e-Azb, requisite legal and constitutional cover has been given to the Pakistan Army wherever it was required,” said the statement.
