Respected Friends,
The following article has been taken by the given link above; and this is true that Pak Army is going to start a new operation in north Waziristan, now another huge displacement is awaiting for. ALLAH gives courage to the people who are living here. Ameen.

Pakistan army has informed civilian leadership of the country that a military operation in North Waziristan has become inevitable, our sources in Islamabad said Tuesday morning.
On condition of anonymity our sources who have the ears of COAS General Kayani say that military leadership has white boarded the operation and taking adequate measures to manage risk.
“GHQ believes a concerted effort is required to shut down the safe haven in North Waziristan and create an environment where Pakistani people can feel safe and secure,” our source in Islamabad said.
Military leadership will inform the US National Security Adviser, James L. Jones, and CIA Director Leon Panetta who arrive in Islamabad today of their plan and seek their concrete support.
Visiting American officials will meet with top Pakistani government, military and intelligence officials in Islamabad Wednesday.
The Pakistani military has waged a fierce offensive against the Pakistani Talibans who are believed to responsible for several terrorist attacks attacks inside Pakistan.
The operation last fall in South Waziristan has dispersed the group in other areas of the FATA, including North Waziristan, where the Pakistani military is planning to launch operations against the Afghan Taliban network of Jalaluddin Haqqani and al-Qaeda. Pakistani army requires logistical support from their American counterpart as they “are stretched too thin.”
US National Security Adviser, James L. Jones, and CIA Director Leon Panetta are scheduled to meet Wednesday with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari; Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani, General Ashfaq Kiyani, and Lt. General. Ahmed Shuja Pasha.
“Pakistani leadership, both civilian and military, will demand expanded American support that goes beyond rhetoric of war against terrorism,” our source said. “Americans need to stop pontificating about our existential threat and provide tangible support and transparent engagements,” he added.
