    More suicide bombings in 2017 than previous two years

    ISLAMABAD: Despite slight improvement in the overall security situation in the country, 2017 saw more suicide attacks than previous two years, according to a provisional report on security situation in Pakistan released by an independent think tank.

    The report compiled by the Pakistan Institute for Conflict and Security Studies (PICSS) shows that terrorists carried out 23 suicide attacks in different parts of the country in 2017, whereas 2016 and 2015 had witnessed 17 and 18 such incidents, respectively.

    The statistics showed that 1,387 people, including 585 civilians, 555 militants and 247 security forces personnel, were killed and 1,965 people, including 1,580 civilians, were injured in terrorism-related incidents, including militant attacks and security forces’ actions.

    The report says that there has been around 15 per cent decline in the number of militant attacks and six per cent reduction in the number of deaths in terrorist attacks.

    The Islamabad-based think tank focuses on conflict and security issues in South Asia, Central Asia and West Asia and works as a monitoring body of anti-state violence in Pakistan, according to the introduction given on the official website of the organisation.

    According to the PICSS, the situation witnessed in the year could be attributed to different external and internal factors, including renewed support to anti-Pakistan elements operating from Afghanistan and the government in Islamabad losing focus of its counter-extremism strategy and the National Action Plan due to political manoeuvrings of the opposition parties as well as because of the ouster of prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

    Report says Balochistan saw highest number of attacks; Nearly 1,400 died in terrorism-related incidents

    Militants carried out at least 420 attacks in which 912 people, including 584 civilians, 225 security forces personnel and 103 militants, were killed and 1,877 injured. In response, security forces conducted 522 operations in which left 475 people, including 452 militants and 22 security forces’ personnel, dead and 88 people injured. Security forces also arrested 1,760 suspected militants during the year.

    The year 2017 saw 113pc decline in security forces’ actions, a reduction of 87pc in militant deaths and 139pc in the number of arrests. Despite a remarkable decline in security forces’ actions, the total number of militant attacks remained less than the last year’s.

    The year 2017 saw the highest number of militant attacks in Balochistan where 183 militant attacks took place in which 308 people, including 208 civilians and 84 security forces personnel, were killed and 572 people suffered injuries. The province remained target of a variety of militant groups, including sub-nationalist militants, sectarian and international militant groups. Overall 43pc of the total militant attacks in the country were recorded in Balochistan and 10 out of 23 suicide attacks (43pc) took place in the province.

    In response, security forces conducted 134 operations against militants in Balochistan in which 112 militants were killed and 657 arrested.

    After Balochistan, the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) remained the most troubled part of the country during 2017. Although, the number of militant attacks dropped by 14pc, the number of deaths increased by 77pc in the tribal areas. Kidnapping by militants also increased in Fata by 113pc.

    In total, 102 militant attacks were recorded in Fata in which 339 people, including 206 civilians, 65 security forces’ personnel and 68 militants, were killed and 858 people, including 629 civilians, suffered injuries. As many as 58 security operations were reported from Fata in which 84 militants and five security forces’ personnel were killed. Security forces also arrested at least 79 suspects from Fata.

    Khyber Pakhtunkhwa witnessed significant improvement in security situation as all indicators saw negative trends. There was 40pc decline in the number of militant attacks an

    SATP data is based on media reports. Most of your fatalities goes unreported in your media.

    their maybe increase in the number of incident but the casualties are decreasing (at 2005 level when it all started) which is good sign.

    need more intelligence involvement in Balochistan, Move some Rangers from Karachi to Balochistan, they know how to handle urban warfare better then any paramilitary, they have proven themselves.

    Remember it was around 2500-3000 civilian deaths per year around 2010-2013. It's around 05-06 level now.

    dumb-wit Pakistanis actually flaunt 70,000 deaths when we know this is an exaggerated figure to get sympathy around the world.Media and govt. officials knowingly or unknowingly also add the casualties happening at the hands of criminals all over the country. A criminal killing a guy while snatching a cellphone is also considered terrorism for many..

    Real figures.
    2017 Pakistan saw around 400 casualties in terror incidents.
    2016 around 416 casualties
    2015 around 335 casualties

    Meanwhile, our's is decreasing at a record rate you should worry about 200 civilians and 170 security personnel in 2017. You have lost more in terrorism than Pakistan . Notice how India was losing 1000-2000 civilains per year in 90's while Pakistan was largely peaceful.
