TIMEFRAME expected from 7/13/2020, 12:00 AM until 7/15/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, North Waziristan Agency


Militants killed four soldiers during clashes in North Waziristan district (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) on Sunday, July 12. The militants fired on security forces as they conducted a cordon and search operation on a suspected militant hideout in North Waziristan's Vezhda Sar area, and an exchange of fire ensued. At least four militants were also killed in the encounter.


Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Al-Qai'da, Islamic State (IS) affiliates, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, the Afghan Taliban, and other Islamist militant groups continue to pose a threat in Pakistan's western border region despite continued military operations aimed at improving security in the area.


Individuals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and in Pakistan more generally, are advised to remain vigilant at all times and report any suspicious activity 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 Westerners, in particular, may be directly targeted.
