Taliban Victory in Afghanistan Fuels Terror Attacks in Pakistan

  • Deadly terror attacks rise to highest level since early 2017
  • Regional security risk has risen after Taliban came to power
Taliban members stop people rushing to pass to Pakistan from the Afghanistan border on Sept. 25.




Deadly terrorist attacks in Pakistan have increased to the highest level in over four years as U.S. troops left Afghanistan and the Taliban took power, a sign of growing instability in the region that could hurt business and investments.
Pakistan has seen 35 attacks that left at least 52 civilians dead in August, the highest since February 2017, according to data compiled by the South Asia Terrorism Portal. Most of the violence has been attributed to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, an offshoot of the Afghan militant group that has been encouraged by developments next door.

The Pakistani militant group “has been emboldened further by what happened in Afghanistan,” Umar Karim, a visiting fellow at the London-based Royal United Services Institute, said over the phone. “The terrorist group had already been growing stronger much before the situation in Afghanistan with splinter groups merging over the past year or so.”

Rampant Violence

With the Taliban in control of Afghanistan, there are concerns in Islamabad that a spillover in terror activities could affect investments, including China’s Belt and Road Initiative that has seen $25 billion poured into power plants and road projects. Pakistan is already facing pressure from Beijing who called on the government to protect such projects after a bus explosion in July killed 12 workers, including nine Chinese citizens.

Holding Back
The growing instability and increased risk in the region have already prompted at least one foreign investor to hold back on acquiring a Pakistani company, according to two people familiar with the matter who asked not to be named, citing the private nature of the information.

Pakistan is not talking about it openly, but it’s concerned about the re-emerging threat of the Pakistan Taliban, which had been crushed by a combination of U.S. drone strikes and domestic military operations, said Asfandyar Mir, a senior expert at the United States Institute of Peace.
Pakistan’s state information minister Farrukh Habib did not respond to a request for a comment.
Part of Pakistan’s worries stem from the fact that many militants wanted by its government have been freed from jails in Afghanistan when the Taliban swept to power. The Afghan militant group has assured Islamabad that their soil won’t be used as a terror base but that’s not been the case so far.
Militants firing from Afghanistan killed two Pakistani soldiers last month in a clash which left many injured. Another seven soldiers died in September when the army attacked terrorists in South Waziristan, according to a statement sent by the army’s media wing.

Seriously, STOP SPREADING INDIAN PROPAGANDA ON THIS FORUM ! When will Mods clean up such threads???
The article talks about Pakistani concerns of the Taliban takeover and recent statistics showing how violence has started to increase to 2017 levels as far as August is concerned. How is this 'indian propaganda'?

Our enemies lost in Afghanistan

This uptick in violence was inevitable, only a fool wouldn't expect it

They question is our response, whilst we could always demand more, our forces have conducted multiple IBO's recently

And we need to be patient for our forces to hunt down our enemies

These IBOs are preferable to large operations that would effect people's lives


Continue to increase border security, backing up the fencing already in place now
Multiple and repeated IBOs are the way forward

The misery and pain of our enemies is palpable you can see it on Social media, it's a battle of nerves we will need to win

It has no relation with Taliban but It is a desperation from our neighbors who got scared after the victory of Taliban so they activated their sleeper cells. But days are numbered....We are eliminating them one by one.

I don't think this is propaganda, terrorist attacks have greatly increased since 2017, this year alone, Dasu happened, we lost the most number of soldiers in a single attack since 2018 (in Waziristan), cross border attacks spiked, Chinese engineers were targeted in Gawader and Karachi, Lahore had a terrorist attack, IEDs have become common. Troop casualties are at a 3 year high.
Yes TTP and other groups have claimed higher casualties and more attacks, but even going with what we ourselves have claimed, it's still very high.
This head in sand strategy will be very costly for us.

Tbs victory will actually result in more attacks in Afghanistan itself. Though Pakistan will face more too but these will be pushed and supported by Iran more than the tb ranks.
