Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has categorically stated that the North Waziristan Operation will continue till the last terrorist sanctuary is eliminated. He said that the decision to launch Zarb-e-Azb was taken after careful deliberations. He also said that all local and foreign terrorists will be wiped out and no sanctuary will be spared. The Prime Minister stated that the government plans to develop the tribal areas after the military has successfully cleared them. It is high time that this underdeveloped area got the opportunity to join the rest of the nation in the 21st century. The people of Pakistan deserve peace, and with the ongoing North Waziristan Operation we are hopeful for a positive outcome. We have been waiting for peace for a long time. Let us hope that Ramadan proves to be a blessing for us.
