Pakistan Facing Surge in Terrorism from Afghanistan: ISPR

Terrorism from Afghanistan

Security forces have successfully neutralized 29 terrorists in the past month in the Sambaza area of Zhob district, according to a statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Wednesday.

Pakistan has seen a rise in terrorism originating from Afghanistan, with terrorists attempting to infiltrate the country to target security forces and innocent civilians. To counter this threat, security forces have been conducting operations along the Pak-Afghan border, including the Sambaza area of Zhob district in Balochistan since April 21.

During an intelligence-based operation (IBO) on May 14, Major Babar Khan was martyred, the ISPR statement said. The security forces remain determined and committed to securing the borders and ensuring the safety of citizens.

The statement added that Pakistan has consistently urged the Afghan interim government to ensure effective border management on their side and to prevent terrorists from using Afghan soil to launch attacks against Pakistan.
