PESHAWAR: Pakistan army said it had completed the phase one of Khyber 4 military offensive after troops including SSG successfully cleared the highest and craggiest mountain top Brekh Muhammad Kandao near Pak-Afghan border.
Many terrorists have been killed and remaining few fled to Afghanistan.
DG ISPR Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor took to the Twitter on Saturday to announce the completion of the phase 1 of the latest military operation.
“Every inch of Pakistan will be peaceful Inshah Ullah. No one can beat a resilient Pakistan,” Ghafoor said.
Earlier, ISPR reported that after having cleared the top, the forces have established posts on over 12000 feet high feature riddled with thick forestation.
“This mountain top was being used as main observation point and its base as transit / storage point.

“The mountain top was planned to be cleared little later as per initial plan but with high tempo operation it has been cleared well ahead of planned timings,” it added.
