The army chief was given a detailed briefing on the prevailing security situation and ongoing counter-terrorism efforts, said the army statement.

Addressing the officers of the Corps, General Munir said, “Armed Forces will not tolerate any further attempt of violating the sanctity and security of its installations or vandalism and resolved to bring to justice all the planners, abetters, instigators and executors of vandalism on the Black Day of 9th May."

On 9 May, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party's chief and former PM Imran Khan was arrested, before being let off on bail by the Islamabad High Court on Friday.

Gen Munir also sensitised about the challenges of information warfare and efforts to create misperceptions and highlighted a concerted effort is being made maliciously by inimical elements to target the Armed Forces.

“We shall continue with our endeavours of peace and stability and there will be no room for spoilers of the process," he said.

On arrival, the Army chief was received by Corps Commander Peshawar, Lt Gen Hassan Azhar Hayat.
