Asim Bajwa

RAWALPINDI: Director General (DG) Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major Asim Bajwa claimed Thursday that a large portion of North Waziristan had been cleared in Operation Zarb-i-Azb.

Holding a press conference, the ISPR spokesman further said the operation is progressing successfully, adding that Operation Khyber-1 is also underway with full force.

Commenting on an interview of former director general of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt-Gen (retd) Asad Durrani to Al Jazeera where he said that Pakistan had ‘most likely’ revealed the position of former Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden to the US, Bajwa said it had been proven beyond doubt that Pakistan had no role in harbouring the Al Qaeda chief.
