RAWALPINDI (92 News) – Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif visited Signal Regimental Centre Kohat on Tuesday.

At an installation ceremony, the COAS pinned the badges of the rank on the shoulders of Major General Sohail Ahmed Zaidi, Signal-in-Chief to formally install him Colonel Commandant of Corps of Signal.

Interacting with officers, men and families of Shuhada, the COAS commended the extraordinary efforts of ranks of signals corps in providing communication support to Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

He also appreciated the sacrifices rendered both by men in uniform and civilians alike in defeating the terrorists and dislodging them from their bases.

The COAS further said: “The ongoing war against terrorism and extremism being fought with the backing of the nation cannot bring enduring peace and stability unless the menace of corruption is not uprooted. Therefore, across the board accountability is necessary for the solidarity, integrity and prosperity of Pakistan. Pakistan Armed Forces will fully support every meaningful effort in that direction, which would ensure a better future for our next generations.”

Earlier, the COAS laid a floral wreath at Yadgar-e-Shuhada and offered Fateha.
