LAHORE: Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the family of Major Ali Salman here on Friday, according to the Inter-Services Public Relations.

Major Salman was martyred during an intelligence-based operation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Upper Dir district on August 9.

Gen Bajwa, who was accompanied by his wife, acknowledged the supreme sacrifice of the officer, saying that he had made the army proud.

“We shall restore peace and rule of law whatever sacrifices it may cost. No threat can deter the resolve of a nation which is united, resilient and honours its heroes”, said the COAS.

Later, the army chief visited the family of Brigadier Mohammad Hasnain who lost his life in a road accident on his way to an operational area in South Waziristan. Gen Bajwa was accompanied by the Lahore Corps Commander during the visit.
