RAWALPINDI: Troops engaged in the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan were showered with glowing tributes on Tuesday by army chief General Raheel Sharif, an ISPR press release said.
The army chief, who was received by Lieutenant General Tariq Khan, Commander 1 Corps Mangla, visited the troops while they were undergoing counter-terrorism training exercises.
Further on a visit to Khairan for the ceremony of the upcoming National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC), General Raheel Sharif said, “The Pakistan army is fully prepared to deter and defeat any form of aggression across the entire spectrum of threat,” ISPR reported.
The NCTC will be a state-of-the-art facility with a large capacity to impart training to troops to combat terrorism in all kinds of terrain, the press release added.
“Since we will have to fight terror with other Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), the army will do its part in training paramilitary forces, the police, constabulary, and the levies at this facility,” the army chief said.
He said the centre would not only cater to the training of the army troops, but will also cater to training of other friendly armies.
