Peshawar under continue under terrorists attack
Terrorists again targeted a Mosque in Hayatabad area of Peshawar in which at least ten people have been killed and over 60 injured. According to Senior Superintend of Police Operations, the explosive took place outside a mosque when people gathered there for Friday prayers. Reportedly, the sound firing can also be heard at the site of the blast. The injured have been shifted to a hospital nearby, and the area has been cordoned off. The terrorist first carried out blast near passport office then did other blast on Imam Bargah.
Early on 4th and 5Th February, terrorists have thrown hand grenades outside of a private college but fortunately no causality was reported due to closure of the college.
However, todays’ attack was carried out just after one day of Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj. Gen. Asim Salim Bajwa gave latest update on militant beauty in Army Public School Warsak Road Peshawar. More than 150 kids have been martyred in that TTP attack.
DG has stated that the Peshawar school attack assailants have all been identified He also expressed that momentum of operation has increased. He added that 226 troops martyred so far, while 813 injured during Zarb-e-Azb.
Mullah Fazlullah had ordered the attack on school, he revealed. He informed that Peshawar attack assailants planned attack in the Afghan border region and deployed some people for recce.
He detailed that the school attackers first arrived in Jamrud in December and stayed there for four days. The assailants were later split into two groups, one stayed in Tehkal, while the other stayed shelter in Warsak Colony. He added that the assailants gathered at residence of an Imam Masjid, where from they launched attack on Army Public School.
One of the Group commanders Ateeq has been arrested, told the DG ISPR. He added that facilitator commander Hazrat Ali carries Rs 2.5 million head money and he also financed the school attack in Peshawar.
General Bajwa said nine of the Peshawar school attackers have been killed while 12 arrested, out of total 27.
“Six terrorists are nabbed in Afghanistan after Army Chief Gen. Raheel Sharif visited the neighbouring country.” We will eventually get there but difficulties develop due to foreign funding of terrorists. He said India had always been intervening in Pakistan affairs [one way or the other].
The DG ISPR very clearly uncovered the Indian hand behind Fata unrest and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan has always been discussed. “Once we reach any conclusion, we will make it public. Their [India’s] aggression at border and backing of terrorists is well known.”
Despite international funding of terrorists, Pakistani forces are focused and determined to root out terrorism, he added. He said most of the areas of South Waziristan have been cleared of terrorists. He added that intelligence based operations were under way across the country. “As many as 176 hardcore terrorists have been killed, while over 5000 apprehended.”
The detail report of DG ISPR is enough to understand the involvement of foreign hand in ongoing militant activities in Pakistan. After Obama’ visit India has even intensified terrorists’ activities in Balochistan and rest of Pakistan’s area. In fact India has also tried to foment secteriansim through todays’ blasts in Pakistan. KPK government should pay attention on the security situation and initiate cases against terrorists so that they should be punished.
