RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif is heading a meeting of the corps commanders at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Thursday 1 January 2015.

The agenda of the meeting is to discuss implementation of the anti-terror national action plan, establishment of military courts, matters pertaining to professional affairs of the military and progress on the ongoing Operation Zarb-i-Azb against militants in the North Waziristan tribal region.

Sources said that during the meeting, General Raheel took the corps commanders into confidence over the national action plan agreed upon by the country's political stakeholders.

Moreover, the corps commanders endorsed the plan and vowed that the army would work side by side with the citizens of Pakistan to counter the scourge of terrorism.

In the aftermath of the carnage at Peshawar's Army Public School, the country's political leadership has taken measures on emergency basis to chalk out a strategy to curb terrorism.

A decision by the political leadership to establish military courts to try suspected terrorists in order to pave way for speedy trials has been one of the major developments in this regard.

Moreover, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had also lifted a long-held moratorium on death penalty, resulting in the execution of seven death-row convicts, most of whom had attempted to target former COAS General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.
