The military's senior command also discussed the details of the ongoing Operation Raddul Fasaad and appreciated the performance of civilian and military security forces in the successful hosting of the Pakistan Super League Final in Lahore and the overall response by the state’s security apparatus after the recent spate of terror attacks.
