General Asim Munir, Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff, visited border areas near Afghanistan on the first day of Eid al-Fitr.

The Pakistani Army's public relations office stated on Wednesday that Munir assessed the operational readiness of the army and the security situation along the borders with Afghanistan.

The army chief traveled to Miranshah and Spinwam areas in North Waziristan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which are in the vicinity of the Khost province of Afghanistan.

This marks the first visit by Pakistan’s Chief of Staff following the country's airstrikes on Khost and Paktika provinces of Afghanistan.

Pakistan’s air force conducted airstrikes on Paktika and Khost in the early morning of March 18. According to Pakistan, the target of the airstrikes was Pakistani Taliban militants on Afghan soil.

Despite Afghan Taliban being called allies in Islamabad, Pakistan's security concerns about the activities of Pakistani militant groups in Afghanistan have increased following the Taliban's takeover of power in Afghanistan.
