Last year, army chief had also spent Eidul Fitr with army troops by staying overnight at the Miramshah camp.
The military offensive against militants in FATA was initiated in June 2014.
Earlier on Wednesday, the army chief visited Corps Headquarters in Peshawar where an Iftar dinner had been hosted in the honour of the families of the Peshawar attack victims.
General Raheel said most of the terrorists involved in the December 16 massacre at Army Public School (APS) Peshawar, had met their fate.
