Army chief General Raheel Sharif on Saturday emphasised the need for all agencies to coordinate for the “dignified return of temporarily displaced persons (TDPs),” according to ISPR. 

Gen Raheel said the return of the TDPs will begin by mid-March, and appreciated intelligence-based operations.

He visited the Corps Headquarter in Peshawar where he was briefed on the progress of the ongoing military Operation Zarb-e-Azb.
