Peshawar, July 2 (ANI): The Pakistan Army has ruled out any possibility of a military offensive against the Taliban in North Waziristan.

The Army has said it would honour the peace deal inked with local tribes in the region despite a sudden increase in attacks on security forces.

Dispelling fears about a probable attack, the military air-dropped pamphlets in Pashto and Urdu to assure tribesmen that the Army has no intention of initiating military action in the region.

The pamphlets mentioned that 'some miscreants were trying to destroy peace and damage ties between the government and Utmanzai Wazir tribes.'

The people were relieved to know that the military is not planning any action in the region, The News reports.

"The leaflets and assurance by the government not to launch any operation restored signs of life to the region," said a resident of Miramshah, Muhammad Kaleem.

Referring to the recent attacks on security forces in the region, the pamphlet said some disgruntled elements could not tolerate development work in the underdeveloped tribal region, and therefore, have started terrorist attacks on government installations and security forces. (ANI)
