Our counterterrorism efforts


There is no doubt that Pakistan has been seriously affected by terrorism. The start of military operations in North Waziristan in June 2014 was a watershed that gave hope that we were beginning to seriously grapple with the menace of terrorism; Operation ‘Zarb-e-Azb’ has achieved excellent results.

The second watershed in counter-terrorism was the adoption of the National Action Plan, which displayed the clear resolve of the political parties and the military establishment, after the devastating terrorist attack by the TTP on the Army Public School in Peshawar in December 2014.
