ISLAMABAD - The federal government is likely to mobilise nearly two more Army divisions as part of contingency measures to eliminate the anti-state elements, militants and miscreants in Swat and Malakand region.
Well-placed sources revealed TheNation on Monday that plans were afoot to mobilise two more Army divisions mainly for the purpose of reinforcement to effectively combat the armed militants who were using the guerrilla warfare tactics.
Sources further said that the move would also help reinforce the troops already deployed and engaged against the militants in Swat and other parts of Malakand.
They were of the view that one purpose of the move could be to contain the militants militarily in such a manner to make them unable to move to other adjoining areas, and to preempt efforts of Tehrik-e-Taleban Pakistan to reinforce militants in Swat and Malakand.
It is worth mentioning here that there is already one division plus military force currently engaged in conducting operation code named 'Rah-e-Haq 4.
