Rawalpindi, June 26 (ANI): The Pakistan Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Ashfaq Kayani has said that the security forces would certainly be able to establish control over the region captured by the Taliban and other militants, as the army is "executing a campaign plan" to achieve its target without much collateral damage.
Addressing security personnel in South Waziristan where the army has launched an extensive operation against the Tehreek-e-Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud, General Kayani stressed that the insurgents would be eliminated, and the government's writ would be re-established in the region soon.
"The Pakistan Army is executing a deliberate campaign plan to achieve the desired end state of re-establishing the writ of the state while ensuring minimum loss of life and damage to property," The Daily Times quoted General Kayani, as saying.
General Kayani was on a day long visit to South Waziristan to gain on-field information about the operation, and boost the morale of the troops deployed in the area, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said. (ANI)
