Director-General of Inter-Services Intelligence (DG ISI) Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed paid a farewell call on President Dr Arif Alvi at the Aiwan-e-Sadr in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The president appreciated the efforts and services of Lieutenant General Faiz Hameed as DG ISI for security of the country, according to an official statement.
Alvi also expressed his best wishes over his appointment as Peshawar Corps Commander.
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.
