Zarb-e-Azb will continue until terrorism is eliminated: PM

PESHAWAR: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that Operation Zarb-e-Azb would continue until terrorism was eliminated.

The prime minister arrived in Peshawar following a terrorist attack on the Army Public School.

Prime Minister Sharif said the nation should support the ongoing operation in North Waziristan as the war against terrorism was in its final stages.

The prime minister emphasised that the nations struggle had reached a decisive point. “The cowardly attack on our children cannot weaken our resolve,” he said.

Prime Minister Nawaz has summoned a meeting on Wednesday at the Governor House in Peshawar of the country’s political parties.

The attack on the Army Public School comes as the military wages a major offensive against the Taliban and other militants in the tribal area of North Waziristan.
