Lt Gen Faiz Hameed takes charge as Corps Commander Peshawar

Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed took over command of Peshawar Corps from Lieutenant General Nauman Mahmood on Monday, said a brief statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

Prime Minister Imran Khan on October 26 notified the appointment of Lt Gen Nadeem as the new ISI chief. A notification issued by the PM’s Office last month read: “The Prime Minister has seen and approved the appointment of Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum, HI (M) as Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence, with effect from November 20, 2021.”

The notification added that the incumbent spymaster, Lt Gen Faiz Hameed “shall continue to hold charge as the Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence till November 19, 2021”.

Gen Faiz was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General in April 2019 after two-and-a-half-year service in ISI and then was posted as adjutant General at the General Headquarters in Rawalpindi.
