Afghan Soil Must Not Be Used for Anti-Pakistan Activities, Army Reiterates

Afghan Soil

RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army has once again expressed its concerns over the use of Afghan soil by militants, citing a significant increase in infiltration attempts and terror incidents orchestrated from the neighboring country.

According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), terrorists from Afghanistan have been attempting to infiltrate through the Pak-Afghan border and target security forces as well as innocent civilians.

The ISPR highlighted the army’s ongoing counter-terror operations, including those being carried out in the Sambaza area of Balochistan’s Zhob district since April 21.

These operations have resulted in the neutralization of 29 terrorists so far. The army has repeatedly urged the interim Afghan government to ensure effective border management and deny the use of Afghan soil by terrorists for perpetrating acts of terrorism against Pakistan.

This is not the first time the army has complained of the use of Afghan soil by terrorists to carry out attacks against Pakistan.

The country has witnessed a significant surge in terrorist attacks since the current Afghan regime came to power, with an even greater increase in recent months.

Last month, Pakistani forces carried out operations inside Afghan territory against terrorists belonging to the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

The ISPR’s statement also paid tribute to Major Babar Khan, who was martyred while fighting gallantly during an intelligence-based operation (IBO) on May 14.

Major Khan, 33, a resident of Mianwali district, was martyred during an anti-terror operation in Zhob, in which three terrorists were eliminated by security forces.

The army’s media wing reaffirmed the security forces’ resolve to secure the borders and ensure the safety of citizens against the scourge of terrorism.

The statement emphasized the need for effective border management and cooperation from the Afghan government to prevent the use of Afghan soil by terrorists.

The Pakistan Army remains committed to protecting its citizens and territorial integrity, and will continue to take all necessary measures to combat terrorism and ensure national security.
