US general praises anti-terror operation


WASHINGTON: Last year, Pakistan took some concrete steps in the war against terrorism but its actions also pushed a large number of extremists into Afghanistan, says the outgoing US commander for Afghanistan.

“Pakistan has done a lot of stuff in the last year. It’s very courageous of Gen Raheel Sharif, the Chief of Pakistani Army, to have Pakistani military operations,” Gen John Campbell told the House Armed Services Committee.
