Taliban Rawalpindi, June 5 (ANI): Pakistan’s Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani has said that the military had “decisively turned the tide” against the Taliban in Swat and adjoining districts.

“The tide in Swat has decisively turned and major population centres and roads leading to the valley have been largely cleared of organised resistance by the Taliban,” said General Kayani while addressing the 119th Corps Commanders’ Conference at General Headquarters.

He told the meeting that forces were aggressively hunting the top leadership of the Taliban in Swat.

General Kayani reiterated the army’s resolve to defeat the terrorists, and praised the troops engaged in fighting the Taliban.
