LAHORE: The courageous ongoing Operation Zarb-e-Azb has completed the first year of its campaign against terrorists and extremist elements in the country. Our brave armed forces have broken the back of the terrorists in the country’s tribal areas. Now, on directions by the civil and military leadership, the operation has entered the cities, where it is working to straighten the law and order situation and purge society of all heinous forms of corruption like money laundering, land grabbing and extortion.
It is hoped that this critical part of the operation against criminal and militant elements in the urban areas of Pakistan meets with success. Our civil and military leadership needs to keep up the resolute efforts for achieving peace and prosperity in the country.
