RAWALPINDI: Pakistan has witnessed a surge in terrorist incidents orchestrated from Afghan soil, wherein, terrorists from Afghanistan attempt to infiltrate through Pakistan-Afghanistan Border and target Security Forces as well as the innocent civilians, the military’s media wing said in a statement on Wednesday.

According to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), in this context, in addition to other areas along Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Security Forces are conducting operations in general area Sambaza in Zhob District of Balochistan, since 21 April 24.

As a result of effective engagements, 29 terrorists have been successfully neutralized by the Security Forces in past one month, the ISPR said. In the same series of operations, during an intelligence-based operation on 14 May 2024, Maj Babar Khan also embraced Shahadat, while fighting gallantly, the ISPR added.

Pakistan’s Security Forces are determined and remain committed to secure the borders and ensure safety of its citizens against the scourge of terrorism.

Pakistan has consistently been asking Interim Afghan Government to ensure effective border management on their side of border. Interim Afghan Government is expected to fulfil its obligations and deny the use of Afghan Soil by terrorists for perpetuating acts of terrorism against Pakistan.
