Top military brass vows to bring Peshawar blast perpetrators to book

ISPR says corps commanders meeting discussed the prevailing and emerging terror threat, IIOJK situation

A day after one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Pakistan’s history,

the country’s top military brass on Tuesday met and discussed the prevailing and emerging terror threat.

The corps commanders’

conferences were presided over by Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir,

who on Monday was in Peshawar along with Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif following

the suicide bombing at Police Lines killing scores of people mostly policemen.

Against the backdrop of the resurgence of terrorism in the country, the military

commanders were briefed in detail about prevailing and emerging threats,

according to the military’s media wing on Tuesday.

As the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), they were also briefed on the ongoing

intelligence-based operations being undertaken by army and law enforcement agencies

for breaking the nexus between terrorists and their support mechanism across the country.

Without naming any country,

the statement referred to Afghanistan, where Pakistan believes the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and its affiliates operate.

The government is no longer pursuing a policy to seek negotiations with the TTP, according to officials. Instead, Pakistan has asked the Afghan Taliban to fulfill its promise to eliminate the terrorist sanctuaries of the TTP.

In a rare move, the Afghan Taliban condemned the Peshawar suicide bombing, saying

the targeting of the places of worship had no justification.

The public condemnation of the interim Afghan government is believed to have compelled the

TTP to issue a statement denying its involvement, though one of its commanders

earlier took the responsibility.

The TTP’s move

, some observers believe, could be tactical as it wanted to avoid any backlash from the Afghan Taliban.

Meanwhile, the forum paid rich tributes to the martyrs of the Peshawar Police Line blast and

vowed that perpetrators will be brought to exemplary justice.

The army chief was quoted as saying: “Such immoral and cowardly acts cannot shake the resolve

of the nation but rather reinvigorate our determination to succeed in the ongoing war


terror with Zero tolerance for any terrorist entity.”
