Remembering the APS martyrs on the fifth anniversary
The Army Public School was attacked on December 16 by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, who killed 150 people, including over 130 children. Shortly after the assault, the Pakistan Army launched a broad spectrum campaign to eliminate terrorism and so it did. The horror that paralysed Pakistan five years ago remain fresh in the hearts and minds of those who survived. The tragic incident left an indelible mark on the nation and forever changed a city. In 2019, we commemorate the sacrifices of the young APS martyrs who were robbed of their chance to leave a mark on Pakistan.
