Pakistan Army: TTP Sanctuaries in Afghanistan Major Security Threat

The Pakistan Army has expressed serious concern over the sanctuaries provided to the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Afghanistan. In a statement issued on Monday, the army said that the TTP’s ability to operate freely from Afghanistan is a major security threat to Pakistan.

The statement said that the TTP has been using Afghanistan as a safe haven to launch attacks against Pakistan. In recent months, the TTP has carried out a number of high-profile attacks in Pakistan, including a suicide bombing that killed 12 soldiers.

The army said that it is “seriously concerned” about the TTP’s sanctuaries in Afghanistan. It called on the Taliban government to take action against the TTP and to prevent it from using Afghan soil to launch attacks against Pakistan.

The army’s statement comes at a time when relations between Pakistan and Afghanistan are strained. The two countries have been locked in a dispute over the Durand Line, the border that separates them. The Taliban government has refused to recognize the Durand Line, which has led to tensions between the two countries.

The army’s statement is a reminder of the security challenges that Pakistan faces. The TTP is a militant group that has been fighting against the Pakistani government for many years. The group has carried out numerous attacks in Pakistan, killing hundreds of people.

The TTP’s sanctuaries in Afghanistan are a major source of concern for the Pakistani government. The group’s ability to operate freely from Afghanistan makes it difficult for the Pakistani military to defeat it.

The army’s statement is a call to the Taliban government to take action against the TTP. The Taliban government has said that it is committed to preventing the use of Afghan soil to launch attacks against other countries. However, it remains to be seen whether the Taliban will be able to control the TTP.

The security situation in Afghanistan is a major concern for Pakistan. The TTP’s sanctuaries in Afghanistan pose a serious threat to Pakistan’s security. The Pakistani government will need to work with the Taliban government to address this threat.
