ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday reiterated that the ongoing Zarb-i-Azb military offensive, launched to eliminate insurgent hideouts in the North Waziristan tribal area, would target all militants, including the feared Haqqani network.
Briefing a delegation of foreign media reporters, DG Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asim Bajwa insisted the current operation would target “terrorists of every hue and colour.”
“That means any terrorist who is on the soil of Pakistan right now within the area of operation,” he told reporters.
“The terrorists of various hue and colour are not wearing different caps, so this will be an indiscriminate operation – when they (soldiers) go there they will eliminate everyone without discrimination.”
The military officials also made it clear that the current operation in North Waziristan Agency was Pakistan Army’s own operation and had no involvement of other foreign forces.
“It’s wrong to link drone attacks with the ongoing operation,” a top military official was quoted as saying during the press briefing.Minister for States and Frontier Regions (Safron) Abdul Qadir Baloch, speaking at the same briefing, said the government was clear that no one would be allowed to use Pakistan as a base for attacks.
“Anybody who has been involved in terrorist activities, whether he is Haqqani or not Haqqani, is very much included,” he said.
