Pakistan News Alert

Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claims improvised explosive device (IED) attack in Bajaur agency (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) October 29

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/30/2018, 12:00 AM until 10/31/2018, 11:59 PM (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION Bajaur agency (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province)

Event

Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants have claimed responsibility for an improvised explosive device (IED) attack that wounded four security personnel in Bajaur agency (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) on Monday, October 29. Similar TTP attacks on security forces are possible in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in the near term.

Context

TTP, Al-Qai'da, Islamic State (IS) affiliates, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, Afghan Taliban, and other Islamist militant groups continue to pose a threat throughout the country despite continued army offensives to push them from their northwestern strongholds near the Afghan border. Pakistan has suffered numerous deadly attacks in recent months, notably in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan provinces.

Advice

Individuals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and Pakistan more generally, are advised to remain vigilant at all times and report any suspicious objects or behavior to the relevant authorities. Due to a high threat from terrorism, as well as kidnapping and sectarian violence, some Western governments advise their citizens to reconsider travel to the country as foreign nationals, and in particular Westerners, may be directly targeted.
