Pakistan Army on Wednesday transferred the powerful spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence’s (ISI's) chief Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed and posted him as Peshawar Corps Commander.

However, his replacement was not announced immediately.

Hameed was appointed as head of tISI on June 16, 2019, in a military shake-up.

He had previously served in the ISI as the head of internal security.

He is considered as close to Army chief General Qamar Bajwa and was appointed as ISI head at a crucial time due to several external and internal security challenges.

He oversaw the crucial changes in Afghanistan where the Taliban took control in August.

In September, he visited Kabul and told the media in a brief chat that "everything will be ok" in Afghanistan, when there were rumours about differences among Taliban ranks due to delay in the announcement of the government.

The Army, in an official statement, also announced two more senior-level postings.

Lt Gen Mohammad Amir was posted as Gujranwala corps commander, while Lt Gen Asim Munir was appointed as the Quarter Master General (QMG) of the Army, the statement said.
