MOHMAND AGENCY – Operation Zarb-e-Azb entered into other stage as Pakistan Army claimed to have cleared most of the area of Mohmand Agency, PakistanTribe received reports.
Mohmand Rifles Commandant Colonel Umar Haider Bokhari said that security forces with the support of local tribesmen have cleared most areas of Mohmand Agency of militants and restored peace there.
“Mohmand Agency is a peaceful area and the security forces have only imposed night curfew to check the movement of militants in the area,” said Col Bokhari.
He expressed the confidence that Mohmand tribesmen would continue supporting the government efforts for restoration of peace in the agency, and would not allow anti-state elements to regroup in future.
“War of terrorism can not be fought without support of tribesmen,” he said. He also urged the tribesmen to keep watch in their respective areas and inform security forces upon seeing any suspected element.
It is worth mentioning here that after the APS carnage of 16 December, Tribal men of Mohamand Agency had decided in a Jirga about the withdrawal of all illegal Afghan people from the area.
They had said that any Afghani found in the area will be shot dead at first site. This decision was taken after the tribal people had received concrete evidences about involvement of Afghan people in terrorist activities.
