Event

Two soldiers were killed and another injured after militants attacked a security forces checkpoint in South Waziristan district (Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province) on Wednesday, November 18. The attack took place near the Pash Ziarat area late on Wednesday night. Security forces responded to the attack and an exchange of gunfire ensued. No group has claimed immediate responsibility for the incident. Additional security personnel have been deployed to the area to carry out clearance operations.

Security operations are expected to take place in the vicinity of the incident in the coming days. Further militant attacks are likely in the region over the medium term.

Context

Extremist Islamist groups, including the terrorist organization Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TPP) and various terrorist groups under its umbrella, continue to pose a threat throughout the country despite continued army offensives to push them from their northwestern strongholds near the Afghan border.

Advice

Those 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.
