The military’s media wing also named Lt Gen Sardar Hassan Azhar Hayat who has been appointed as the new Peshawar corps commander.

Lt Gen Hameed’s appointment comes at a crucial time when both external and internal security challenges seemed to be growing.

In October 2021, he was appointed as the Peshawar corps commander when Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum replaced him as the director-general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

In a surprise shakeup, Lt Gen Hameed was given the DG ISI’s role on June 16, 2019.

He has previously served in the ISI as the head of internal security and comes from the army’s Baloch Regiment.

Lt Gen Hameed first caught public attention for his role in ending the Faizabad dharna by the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan in November 2017 through an agreement.

The group then staged a sit-in against amendments to the Elections Act 2017.
