It was added that he returned to Pakistan from Syria and was involved in recruiting, facilitation and indoctrination for the Al-Qaeda and Daesh. Moreover, the detained terrorist confessed that he was involved in recruiting more terrorists for training in Afghanistan because they had access to weapons training and militant training over there.  Furthermore, the law enforcement agencies have acclaimed that similar operation against Daesh and Al-Qaeda militants present in the country will be carried out and steps are being taken to make further arrests.
