Latest World News: 4 injured in explosion in Bajaur district of KP – Pakistan –

At least four people were injured in an explosion in the Geelay region of Mamund Tehsil district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwas Bajaur on Friday, police said.

According to Mamund Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Sattar Khan, a vehicle was targeted. He added that the bomb was detonated via a remote control.

The injured were taken to Khar District Headquarters Hospital (DHQ), the DSP added.

Meanwhile, Bajaur District Police Officer (DPO) Nazeer Khan said Dawn.com passengers were returning home after Friday afternoon prayers when the bomb exploded.

The DPD further said that following the incident the police cordoned off the area.

He added that an investigation was underway but the reason why the victims were targeted could not yet be determined.

The blast comes a day after five police officers were killed in two separate KP attacks while 12 people, including nine police officers, were injured.

Terrorists had attacked an official compound in Bara bazaar in Khyber district while a police station in Peshawars Regi Model Town area was attacked.

Increase in terrorist activities

Pakistan has seen an upsurge in terrorist activities, especially in the KP and Balochistan, after the banning of Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) ended its ceasefire with the government in November last year.

A report released this month by the Pakistan Institute for Conflict and Security Studies think tank says the first half of the current year has witnessed a steady and alarming increase in terrorist attacks and suicides, which have cost the lives of 389 people across the country.

More than a week ago, up to 12 Pakistani army soldiers embraced martyrdom in two attacks on the army in Zhob and Sui regions of Balochistan, which were the highest military death toll in one day following reported terrorist attacks this year.

Seven heavily armed militants were also killed in retaliation.

Two days after the incidents, the military expressed serious concerns about the safe havens and freedom of action available to the TTP in Afghanistan.

It is expected that the Afghan caretaker government will not allow the use of its soil to perpetrate terror against any country, in the real sense and in accordance with the commitments made in the Doha agreement, according to an inter-service public relations statement.

The involvement of Afghan nationals in acts of terrorism in Pakistan is another important concern that needs to be addressed. Such attacks are intolerable and would elicit an effective response from Pakistani security forces, he added.

Senior army brass again reiterated the claim at the 258th Corps Commanders Conference while Defense Minister Khawaja Asif also accused the Afghan Taliban of not honoring their commitments under the Doha agreement, that is, they would not allow Afghan soil to be used against others.

Also earlier, Islamabad had repeatedly raised concerns about the use of Afghan soil by militants for cross-border terrorism.

In response to recent concerns raised by the military and the government, Afghan Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid disputed the statements of the Pakistani side saying: We do not allow them (TTP) to live and operate in Afghanistan. We have suffered the consequences of wars and we do not want others to suffer like Afghanistan.

But in a separate space interview with BBC PashtoMujahid has taken a harder line apparently in order to play with Afghan galleries advising Pakistan to solve its internal problems on its own, instead of pointing fingers at others.

At a press conference in June, Director General of Inter-Agency Public Relations, Major General Ahmed Sharif Chaudhry, said security forces had carried out 13,619 intelligence operations this year in which 1,172 terrorists had been killed or arrested.

Every day, more than 77 operations are carried out by the armed forces, police, intelligence agencies and other law enforcement agencies to eliminate the threat of terrorism, he said.

DG Sharif added that 95 soldiers embraced martyrdom in these operations.
