Pakistan Army’s airstrikes against Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan militants in the provinces of Khost and Paktika

Local sources have reported to the media about Pakistan Army’s airstrikes targeting Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan fighters in the provinces of Khost and Paktika in eastern Afghanistan.

According to the sources, these airstrikes took place this morning on Tuesday, March 18, in the Spērah district of Khost province and the Barmal district of Paktika province.

So far, the casualties caused by these airstrikes have not been disclosed, and officials from the interim Taliban government have not commented on the matter.

Apparently, these Pakistan Army airstrikes are a response to the attacks by Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, as in recent days, the TTP has carried out several attacks against the Pakistan Army, resulting in the deaths of several soldiers from that country.

In a militant attack by Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan in the North Waziristan region, at least seven soldiers from the Pakistan Army were killed, and over 18 were injured.

Furthermore, Pakistan’s Defense Minister, Khawaja Asif, stated yesterday that the origin of many militant attacks against Pakistan is Afghanistan.

The Defense Minister of Pakistan added, “The origin of many terrorist attacks against Pakistan is Afghanistan.”

Khawaja Asif emphasized that attacks in Pakistan are being orchestrated from Afghan territory, and at the same time, some of the facilitators of these militants have been traced, and the Afghan Taliban has been informed about it.

However, the interim government of Afghanistan denies these claims, and officials from the current government state that Afghan territory will not be used to attack any country.

Zabihullah Mujahid stated to the media yesterday that the claims made by Pakistani officials are not true.
