Latest update: Around 30,000 soldiers involved in operation - over 200 insurgents killed.
Interactive map produced by: Sana Malik | Mahnoor Bari | Gulzar Nayani
Data gathered from ISPR and Dawn
Has any independent journalist on the ground corroborated the numbers we are given as 'killed' and whether those killed were villagers (men, women and children) or if they were terrorists? If not, DAWN should do this. Otherwise, as they say, the first casualty of war is the truth.
Thank God that this operation, to clear our country of a menace, has finally got under way. I pray that our brave soldiers and airmen are kept out of harms way as much as possible.
May God protect the innocents, especially women and children..
Good Work by Sana Malik, Mahnoor Bari, Gulzar Nayani. Easy to know about Zarb-e-Azb Operation.
Killing Punjabi Taliban along with the foreign militants and sniper action by Army to kill Uzbeks laying IEDs. Looks like the army is trying to do the hold and neutralize operation now.
Please cover some valuable targets hit by the forces.
The operation against militants and those providing them refuge is a need of hour. We can't move forward without eliminating terrorists and their supporters.
Please note why some of the map is red and some is yellow? Is the yellow part where the terrorists are?
Very true, just count how many terrorist died till today. It looks if there is some hunt game going on.
Inshalla The ARMED FORCES of PAKISTAN WILL restore peace and eliminate miscreants from the area.May GOD take care of our Soldiers.
May God help all of us and keep our solders Brave and Safe.
We are with our Armed Forces , regardless of what the "drawing room pseudo-intellectuals" has to say against the Armed Forces !
Zarb-e-Azb Operation is the need of time that will lead to a peaceful and tension free state of pure but the Armed force must take care of the innocent civilians,moreover we pray that soon will get rid of militancy and state of anarchy
Well done Pak Army , thanks for doing this much needed operation
Zarb-i-Azb is wrong. How can a Nation's army wage a war against it's own citizens, however wrong they are. Dialogue is a better solution.
nice job, well done
This is an amazingly designed interactive map of operation Zarb-e-Azb. GOOD WORK!
Good effort! I must appreciate the trio who made a very good interactive map of conflict zone.
It is well known saying that there is always room for improvement. So the Dawn and the Team must add some more features. for example location of troops and enemy(no need to be precise). military assets like tank regiments artillery. And most importantly the recent movement of troops/enemy and wins and loses. area may be colored to show who controls the area.
I hope the Dawn team will work continuously to improve it further
Its very hard to put independent journalist in the conflict zone. However every effort should be made to ascertain the truth that is the first duty of a journalist/newspapers
