ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has summoned a meeting of the corps commanders for Sunday evening, a day after the political impasse in Islamabad took the form of a full blown clash between protesters and law enforcement personnel.
Earlier, the meeting was scheduled to be held on Monday morning but its time was changed after the army chief held some consultations with the senior military commanders.
An ISPR spokesman had earlier said that the meeting which is to be chaired by General Raheel will discuss matters relating to the internal security situation.
Highly-placed sources told Daily Siatar Sindh that the conference would also evolve its strategy to end the prevailing impasse.
The situation in Islamabad took on critical proportions after the clashes began late on Saturday and led to at least seven reported deaths and two hundred injuries.
Tomorrow’s meeting of the army commanders can have a serious bearing on the prevailing scenario, especially with the fact that the military had engaged in ‘mediating’ the crisis between the government and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).
