46,470 families have returned to NWA: FDMA

MIRANSHAH: Around 46,470 families have returned to their native areas since the launch of the repatriation process of internally displaced persons (IDPs) from North Waziristan Agency (NWA).

According to the details issued by the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) Disaster Management Authority (FDMA), a total of 82,000 families had shifted from Miranshah to Bannu and other parts of the country after the launch of the military operation Zarb-e-Azb against militants in NWA on June 15, 2014.

The military cleared most of the areas of militants after the military operation.

The returning process of the displaced families to native areas had started on April 1,2015, said the FDMA.

It said the IDPs have been returned to various parts of North Waziristan.

Meanwhile, the officials of the political administration said that the returning process of displaced persons to NWA has been stopped due to upcoming Eidul Azha. They said the process would be resumed on September 19.
