Pakistan Alerte de sécurité

IED blasts kills six government troops in North Waziristan district (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) on October 14; further attacks possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 16/10/2020, 12h00 until 18/10/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Karachi). COUNTRY/REGION North Waziristan Agency, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province

Event

Two improvised explosive device (IED) blasts killed six government troops in North Waziristan district (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) on Wednesday, October 14. The explosions occurred near Razmak as a convoy traveled through the area, resulting in one soldier also being injured. The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) group later claimed responsibility for the attack.

Similar militant attacks are possible in North Waziristan in the near term.

Context

TTehrik-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.

Advice

Those in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, and Pakistan more generally, are advised to remain vigilant at all times and report any suspicious activity to security forces.

Due to a high threat from terrorism, as well as kidnapping and sectarian violence, some Western governments advise their citizens to reconsider travel to some areas of Pakistan, including the former Federally Administered Tribal Areas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
