Reminder of good old days, passing out 129 PMA Course at Kakul. Despite rain, clouds, COAS & PM landed, reviewed parade. Perfect parade, felt proud. Polio Campaign:Waziristan, the most affected area, followed by Khyber and a small area in Karachi. Need to join hands to save next generation. (Tweeted by DG ISPR @AsimBajwaISPR)

Press Release
Rawalpindi - August 27, 2011: 

At least 25 Security forces personnel including 16 Frontier Scouts KPK, 4 Policemen and 5 Levies embraced shahadat when 200-300 terrorists from across the border (Kunar and Nooristan Province) attacked 7 FC check posts in Chitral early this morning.  Own security personnel defended the posts by engaging the attackers and reportedly 20 terrorists were killed. However, two border posts were overrun by the terrorists. Reinforcements have been sent to beef up the border posts.
Reportedly terrorists from Swat, Dir, and Bajur organised by Fazlullah and Maulvi Faqir Muhammad with local Afghans have attacked the security forces posts in Chitral. Since their expulsion from their native areas, the terrorists have organised themselves in Kunar and Nooristan Provinces with the support of local Afghan authorities. Due to scanty presence of NATO and ANA forces along Pak-Afghan border, the terrorists are  using these areas as safe havens and have mounted repeated attacks against own security forces posts and isolated villages. 
It is pertinent to mention that since last one year accurate intelligence about large concentration of terrorists from Pakistan and their local Afghan supporters in Kunar and Nooristan provinces has been shared with NATO and Afghan authorities but no worth while action has been taken against the terrorists and attack against Pakistani border posts have continued with impunity.
