Pakistan is again witnessing the resurgence of terrorism in its tribal belt bordering Afghanistan which is now spreading to major cities like Peshawar, Lahore as well as the capital Islamabad, making it the most challenging and dangerous test for the country’s security forces.
Since the failure of negotiations between the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) terrorist group and a government delegation under former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan held in Kabul under the facilitation of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan, the banned outfit has carried out deadly attacks ranging from suicide blasts, IED explosions, targeted attacks on security installations, military convoys and check-posts, and targeted killings of security personnel.
A latest report reveals that there have been over 200 terror attacks by the TTP and other terror groups in Pakistan. “Pakistan witnessed a sharp increase in terrorist attacks in August with 99 incidents reported across the country, marking 83 per cent surge in militant attacks compared to July during which terrorists carried out 54 attacks,” a think tank said in a report.
“It is their [Taliban] responsibility—their international, bilateral and their trilateral responsibility as they have committed to the trilateral meeting between Pakistan, Afghanistan and China in May this year.” Foreign Office spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said.
