August 25, 2016

RAWALPINDI (92 News) – COAS General Raheel Sharif had a tele-conversation with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday. During the conversation, the COAS strongly condemned terrorists’ attack on American University of Afghan in Kabul and expressed his sympathies with the bereaved families. The COAS said that Pakistani soil would not be allowed to be used for any type of terrorism in Afghanistan. Afghan authorities have shared three mobile telephone numbers allegedly used during the university attack who allegedly were on contact with the attackers. It may be mentioned here that based on these three Afghan cell numbers provided by Afghan authorities, Pakistan Army carried out a combing operation in suspected area closer to Pak-Afghan border to verify presence of miscreants. Our evaluation of the evidence provided and outcome of combing operation so far, has shown that all Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network owned and operated by Afghan company whose spill over signal affects some areas along Pak-Afghan border. Outcome of the operation so far has been shared with the Afghan authorities. Further technical evaluation of the cell numbers (all Afghan) is being carried out. The COAS assured the Afghan president of all out cooperation on availability of further information from Afghans.
