RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Thursday has said that peace was restored in FATA with the sacrifices of armed forces but some people have again started the movement as they want to destroy country’s solidity.
No one can harm Pakistan until existence of Pak Army, said army chief while paying glowing tribute to the families of martyrs and war heroes of the country.
“No medal can substitute the sacrifices of the martyrs,” said General Bajwa, adding that peace in the country prevails due to the martyrs and ghazis of Pakistan, said the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

In the ceremony, where General Bajwa was the chief guest, two officers were awarded the Tamgha-e-Jurat and 33 officers and soldiers were given the Tamgha-e-Basalat.
The families of martyrs received awards from the army chief, who paid homage to their sacrifices for the country.
