All you have is waffle where is your mate batman. He is slow on this...celebrate the death of Pakistanis with politics
Where is the politics? Its simply a demand for accountability as social justice of communal coexistence under a charter of a nation state.

Four women aid workers were gunned down on Monday in the Mirali area of North Waziristan, police said, as a fresh wave of extremist violence rattles the region.

The aid workers were ambushed by two gunmen as they were driving through a village in North Waziristan district, according to local police chief Shafiullah Gandapur, who said just one passenger survived the assault.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far but it was surely an act of terrorism,” he told AFP.

Gandapur said the aid workers were affiliated with a programme run by a local institute to develop household skills for women.

The incident and death toll was confirmed by Rasul Khan, another local police official.

Separately, Gandapur said in a statement that the driver of the vehicle was also injured in the attack.

He added that a search and strike operation was being carried out in the Mirali tehsil of the district to trace and arrest the terrorists.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan issued a statement, condemning the attack and demanding that the perpetrators be brought to book.



The tribal areas along the Afghan border remain notorious for the availability of cheap guns, narcotics and smuggled goods.

Attacks have decreased in recent years following a series of military offensives against homegrown and foreign militants.

In 2014, the army launched a massive operation to wipe out militant bases in North Waziristan aimed at ending a near decade-long insurgency that cost thousands of lives.

But militant groups are still able to carry out sporadic, isolated assaults.


A recent surge in attacks targeting security forces along the Afghan border has sparked fears that these groups may be regrouping.
TTP took responsibility..

There is a problem with Waziristan and its people. They love fitna. Whether religion or ethnicity or any other reason. They love to create fitna and not obey law
It has been problematic historically. The US/NATO and Afghan/Indian nexus is exploiting it to the fullest.

TTP took responsibility..
The US/NATO and Indian/Afghan nexus.

Words are not enough to describe the sorrow I feel for our shaheed sisters, Allah give them jannah and eternal love.
I hope these savages are destroyed and wiped from the earth.

It has been confirmed that it was a retaliation for the recent killing of ten hardcore terrorists in NWA.... That's why they choose a soft target this time since they have been unable to target military targets..... These ladies were from Sabaoon NGO and they have been visiting these area for the last two months.... The terrorists chose them today to vent out their frustration.
I believe they were targetted for being affiliated with the SF?

The PTM needs to be destroyed

Asking for rights is fine but when they openly collude and create chaos it's intolerable


Waziristan is a snakes pit

It's not too big

The border there needs to be water right, not just fencing

Increase the checkpoints

Increase military operations and targeting

Start arresting PTM members as supporters of Extremist organisations

The Americans are again giving it another twist.

Solution is straightforward. Get in the devil's hole and pounce the enemy.
