According to reports, there were above 500 alleged foreign terrorists taking sanctuary in South Waziristan Agency (SWA), forcing Government of Pakistan and Army to take some action. In this action, government required cooperation of tribal people for apprehension of the reported elements.
Pakistan Army conducting Wana Operation, emphasizes that no US personnel would be allowed to cross the border to assist them and no one will be allowed to use Pakistani soil for terrorist activity as well.
Since the operation has started, dozens of Pakistan Army soldiers have been killed by militants. Pakistan Army has also killed and captured number of militants.
1. Do you think the WANA Operation by Pakistan Army is justified ?
2. How do you see the foreign persons taking sanctuary in WANA, Mujahideen or Terrorists ?
