He further said: "We owe it to our next generations to eliminate this scourge once for all. Together we shall win against terrorism/extremism". General Raheel further informed the committee that the offenders directly related to the Peshawar school attack were gunned down during the encounter. He further said that positive results are coming out of the ongoing military operations Khyber-One and Zarb-e-Azb.
General Raheel Sharif said that the Commander ISAF assured him full support in eliminating terrorists on Afghan soil, adding that better results can be achieved by Pak-Afghan bilateral co-operation. Earlier, clarifying some reports, ISPR said that reports of involvement of 11 terrorists in the Peshawar attack are baseless. Seven terrorists, who carried out that barbaric act in a Peshawar school, were killed and their bodies are in custody.
