    Director General Inter-Service Public Relations Lt-Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa addressed a press conference on Wednesday, marking the second anniversary of Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

    “June 15 is a historic day for us. Before Zarb-e-Azb, the country, including North Waziristan was plagued with terrorism.”

    “Over a period of two years, an area of 3,600sq km in North Waziristan has been cleared of terrorists,” DG ISPR said.

    “This includes 900 terrorists belonging to Lashkar-e-Islam.”

    “As promised, these operations including Operation Kinetic have been conducted without any biasness. Shawal has also been cleared of terrorism.”‘

    “Pakistan Army has recovered modern weapons from these terrorists, which they had stolen from American troops,” he told the media.

    “The army successfully seized 253 tons of explosives- enough to make IEDs from for at least 15 years,” he said while adding that 7,500 bomb making factories were closed down in Shawal.

    In the past two years, a total of 3,500 terrorists were killed, leaving 992 hideouts destroyed, DG ISPR stated.

    Referring to the loss faced by the Pakistan Army during Zarb-e-Azb, Bajwa said, 490 soldiers have been killed thus far.

    “Pakistan is not harbouring any terrorists on its soil,” he added.

    Further delving into the law and order situation of Karachi, Bajwa said, “About 1,200 terrorists have been arrested from Karachi, which reflects on the improved security situation of the metropolis.”

    Answering a question regarding the recent arrest of Kulbhushan Yadav, an Indian Navy commander and agent of the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), Bajwa said, “This is the first time since World War II that a serving officer of another country has been caught.”

    He further said that Pak Army had caught RAW and Afghan agents from tribal regions.

    Two years after the military launched an operation, code-named Zarb-e-Azb, in the tribal areas, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that it has restored peace while the backs of terrorists have been broken.

    “Due to this (Zarb-e-Azb), the nation regained peace that was snatched by terrorists and anti-state elements,” PM Nawaz said in his message to the nation on the two-year anniversary of the massive operation.

    “The back of terrorists has been broken and they will soon become part of the trash of history,” he said.

    Speaking about the recent tensions between Afghanistan and Pakistan along the Torkham border, Bajwa said, “Afghanistan resorted to unprovoked firing and then Pakistan replied in kind.”

    “We did not hand over even an inch of Pakistani soil to Afghanistan,” Bajwa said regarding Angoor Adda. The check post handed over to Afghanistan was in its area, he added.

    “Angoor Adda was handed over after consensus with the government,” DG ISPR said.

    He further added that Pakistan was in talks with Afghanistan to resolve all issues.

    Talking about drone attacks in Pakistan, Bajwa said that drone strikes will never be acceptable to Pakistan. “Drone strikes are an infringement of our sovereignty,” he added.

    Concluding his press conference, he said, “It’s a long fight and we have reached this day after a long journey.”

    Recalling the decision to go ahead with the operation, PM Nawaz said the whole nation including Pakistan Army and other security institutions played their role with full consistency and determination, which purged the country of the scourge of terrorism.

    The premier went on to describe the past two years of Zarb-e-Azb as an “everlasting tale of human determination, courage, fortitude, bravery and sacrifice” which will continue to shine in the pages of our history and would be a source of guidance for the new generation.

    How can Pakistan ever be free of terrorism and militancy when its military and intelligence agencies incubate jihadis to use against India or Afghanistan? Is their strategy to fight fire with fire?

    That's not even a realistic kill ratio, i feel sorry for the unarmed 'suspected' innocents who were killed by pakistan army just to come with that figure.

    As tarak fatah said they are only good at killing innocent civilians, raping women , killing innocent Bengolis and balochs. When it comes to fight indian army, they will put down and weapon and say " Sahb ji thodi sharab barab to pilao". 35000 Pakistani soldiers surrendered to 5000 indian troops in Dhaka. general Niyazi said that General Jacob threaten him to kill him and his family so he surrendered.

    Chota terrorist sharif do not want to salute bada sharif , the prime minister.

    Always hilarious to see Pakis posting self congratulatory news and speculations about positive developments to portray the terrorist nation that is Islamic Republic Of Pakistan as a responsible country.

    Butthurt as expected because we succeeded crippling the TTP. Zarb e Azb resulted in 80% decline of terrorist attacks on our soil and inshallah we will eliminate the rest in near future.

    Burol anyone?

    I really can't believe you guys killed so many civilian people in Baluchistan and other parts. You did it just for the name sake to show world . How can we believe you fought terrorists when you have created, protected and saved them with your own soldiers death... How shame less is Pakistani Isi and army.

    Beta Paki... Pak Army has a history of not releasing the real death figure since it's a beizzati of fake martial kaum.

    Whatever they claim is 25% of the actual figure.Also you killed MOSTLY civilians and not Terrorists.

    In Kargil you accepted only 500 odd but your Ganju admitted that about 4000 were dead.You even left lot of rotting Paki soldiers on our land and didn't accept their bodies.It's a SHAME to be in Pak Army since they disown them.

    btw why do you bring "butt" in each of your post, you have some fascination of butt, are you GAY like Omar Siddiqi? :rofl:

    Remeber 5 March 1966, the day IAF bombed Mizoram? And Indira Gandhi had the guts to lie about it.
    How about 80.000+ murders and thousands of rapes in Kashmir?

    People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

    So, that's what he meant by saying they aren't harbouring any terrorist in Pakistan because TTP is the only terrorist group in Pakistan? Congrats.

    how many causality with permanent disability ? I think that number would be really to be worried about.

    Once dead a settlement is done and wife and children taken care off, but permanent disability causes much bigger issue.

    Even you do not have your own anti burn cream and have to use burnol in your home and cite burnol on forum. Do not you think that Pakistan should have one anti burn cream of its own? What say?

    What can be a matter of more shame than disowning the dead body of the soldiers who laid down their lives fighting for their nation. Punjabi Generals have abducted 29 baluch girls for rape in their camps. They are killing 10 to 20 sidhis every day. Those coward who put down their weapons against indian army and surrendered are extremely cruel on innocent civilians.

    How can anyone take these numbers seriously when there is no independent verification? The media regurgitates what the ISPR tells them.

    TTP was the biggest threat and had to be taken out first. We are still after the other groups but TTP has cells on Afghanistan and has alleged Indian support. She's our main peiority.

    Consdering the improved security situation and strong decline in terrorist attacks, one can say we made a good choice.

    1200 terrorists in karachi alone? Don't you think that figure is too high? Even if it is true, what the hell was your government and intelligence agency doing all this time?
