Pakistani Army: ’29 terrorists’ killed along Afghanistan border


The Pakistan Army has announced that “29 terrorists have been killed” during a series of operations over the past month along the border with Afghanistan.

The operations come amid a surge in terrorism originating from Afghanistan soil, according to the Pakistani army newsletter.

“Security forces have been conducting operations in the Sambaza area of Zhob district, Balochistan, along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border since April 21, 2024. As a result, 29 terrorists have been neutralized in the past month,” stated Inter-Services Public Relations on Wednesday.

Pakistan views this series of operations as part of a broad effort to curb the infiltration of “terrorists” who target security forces and civilians in Pakistan.

Meanwhile, last week Pakistani security forces clashed with the Taliban in the border region of Dand Patan. The clashes ended after five days of mediation by local elders and officials from both sides of the border.

On the other hand, the Pakistan Army’s media unit told the media: “We have repeatedly asked the Taliban to assure us of effective management of border areas.”

In recent months, Pakistani authorities have consistently accused the Taliban of providing shelter to Pakistani terrorists in response to the increase in terrorist attacks in the country.

Pakistan claims that terrorist attacks in this country are planned and orchestrated from inside Afghanistan, but the Taliban have always rejected the claims of Pakistani authorities, stating that armed opposition forces to the Pakistani government do not have a presence in Afghanistan.
