Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), General Syed Asim Munir visited Karachi on February 18, 2023.
Honorable Chief Minister (CM) Sindh, Murad Ali Shah and COAS were briefed about the Karachi Police Office incident at Corps Headquarters. Thereafter, they visited the Karachi Police Office, where a successfully coordinated Counter Terrorism (CT) operation involving Pakistan Army Special Services Group (SSG), Pakistan Rangers Sindh and Sindh Police cleared the site, and all terrorists were eliminated.
Subsequently, CM and COAS also visited Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre (JPMC) and boosted the morale of injured soldiers of Police and Pakistan Rangers Sindh. They praised the bravery, morale and sacrifices of Army, Police and Pakistan Rangers Sindh in the line of duty.
The honorable CM stated, “State acknowledges and salutes the innumerable sacrifices rendered by the Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) and nation’s unbreakable resolve against the terrorism.”
COAS emphasized, “Terrorists have no religious or ideological moorings, rather only misguided conception forced through coercion or inducement. Contrary to the political and other distractions being faced by the public, the security forces remain singularly focused on CT and Intelligence-based operations (IBOs), which are being conducted all over the country with pronounced success”.
He concluded, “No nation can overcome such challenges with kinetic actions only. It needs mutual trust, will of the people and synergy between all the stakeholders. Pakistanis have always rejected and defeated terrorism and extremism in all its manifestations. Together we shall prevail upon this menace for a shared prosperous future”.
Earlier on arrival, COAS was received by Commander Karachi Corps.
