PM expresses deep grief over martyrdom of Lt Arsalan Alam

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has expressed deep grief over the martyrdom of Lt. Arsalan Alam who embraced martyrdom on Saturday as a result of attack on Pak Army post at Rajgal, Khyber Agency.

PM has stated that war against terrorism in fact is war of our existence as a sovereign nation. Our valiant forces have inflicted huge damage upon terrorist elements but at the same time have rendered huge sacrifices in doing so. Each drop of blood of our heroes is a testament to the fact that we all are united as a nation to cleanse our beloved motherland from terrorist elements, stated the PM.

These cowardly attacks on our law enforcing agencies can never flinch our resolve to back-off or slow down in our resolve to continue with anti-terror operations.

The Prime Minister has prayed for the departed soul and expressed sympathies with the bereaved family of the martyred Lt. Arsalan.
