RAWALPINDI: Pakistan Army on Sunday ruled out the impression that any military operation is underway in Balochistan, and stated that the troops have been deployed in earthquake-affected areas only to carry out relief operations.

In a statement, Director General Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa said that “there is no military operation underway in Awaran and Mushke districts as being propagated by miscreants… Security forces are in the areas only for relief operation.”


The DG ISPR said security forces “are committed in relief operation only, despite repeated attacks by miscreants on troops busy in relief work. Security forces have exercised utmost restraint, despite having loss of six soldiers in IED attacks and fire raids, and another 12 soldiers injured.”

DG ISPR also appealed to the general public to beware of “miscreant’s propaganda.” He welcomed the media to visit Awaran and Mushke to witness the situation on ground.
