Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa arrived in Naushki, Balochistan, to honour the Pakistan troops for their success and sacrifices made in a repulsing terror attack in the area, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Tuesday.

The armed forces had successfully averted two separate terror attacks in Naushki and Panjur, Balochistan, on February 2, and completed the clearance operation in the area later on February 5, killing 20 terrorists with the loss of nine precious soldiers, including a junior and senior army official.
