QUETTA, 22 May: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has said the ongoing war against terrorism is being fought to secure the future generations.

Addressing a function at Command and Staff College in Quetta yesterday, the COAS said prosperity can only prevail in Pakistan in a peaceful environment. The army chief said it is time to take action against terrorists in urban areas after success in Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

General Raheel said the security threats are complex and multi-dimensional, rending traditional response mechanisms irrelevant. He said only the Army cannot win the wars, adding that the support of masses is vital for triumph.
