Pak Conducts Military Operation Against TTP in Afghanistan, Says Ex-Afghan Intel Chief

Monday, 08/29/2022

Pakistan has started an operation against Tehrik-e Taliban (TTP) Pakistan in Afghanistan, claimed Rahmatullah Nabil, former Afghan intelligence chief.

Nabil stressed that the Taliban defense minister had not been consulted regarding the operation, or has been pretending that the group is independent.

Nabil reacted on Twitter to the latest comments of the Taliban's acting defense minister Mullah Yaqoob in Kabul on Sunday, who said that American drones enter Afghanistan soil from Pakistan. He had asked Pakistan not to allow its airspace to be used against Afghanistan.

However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan quickly reacted to Yaqoob’s statements and called it "very unfortunate" and said that it "defies the norms of responsible diplomatic conduct".

Pakistan Foreign Ministry urged the Taliban to ensure the fulfillment of international commitments made by Afghanistan and not to allow the use of its territory for terrorism against any country.

Nabil refered to the start of Pakistan's military operations in Afghanistan when authorities in Islamabad had announced the failure of the peace talks between Pakistan and the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

Since August 15, 2021 and the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban, American and Pakistani military have launched attacks in parts of Afghanistan several times.

In one of these cases, air strikes by Pakistani forces on Khost and Kunar provinces in eastern Afghanistan left "at least 47 people" dead. It has been said that all these victims were civilians.
