Islamabad, Wed, 19 Oct 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Oct 19(ANI): The Pakistan Army and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel have been deployed in areas bordering Afghanistan to stop cross-border militant attacks, Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Major General Athar Abbas has said.


In an interview with Radio Pakistan, Abbas said that Pakistan will not allow militants to carry out attacks on its check posts and border villages and kill civilians.


He said that about 100 personnel of police, levies and paramilitary forces have so far been martyred in militant attacks from across the border during the last few months.


The International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) was informed about these attacks, but no action has been taken so far, he added.


Abbas said that there seems to be no presence of the Afghan army or ISAF in the vast area from where militants were operating against Pakistan, The Express Tribune reports.


He said about 37 security personnel were martyred in the Chitral attack, which was the first such attack and a matter of great concern for Pakistan.


Abbas also said that Dir was the most affected area by militant attacks, and that terrorist groups fleeing from Swat were involved in these attacks.


He said Pakistan had strengthened all border check posts and increased their numbers in Dir.


Abbas also said that militants had safe havens in the Kunar, Nooristan and Nangarhar areas of Afghanistan, and that there were no security forces present there.


It seems that the militants are being supported locally and operating freely, he added. (ANI)
