ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The United Nations (UN) has confirmed that India had used the Afghan soil for its state terrorism against Pakistan.

According to a report, terror group Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP), responsible for more than 100 "cross-border" attacks within three months last year, oversaw a "reunification" of splinter groups that took place in Afghanistan and was moderated by al-Qaeda, a development that was expected to increase the threat to Afghanistan and the region.

"India merged five terrorist organizations in Afghanistan. After the merger of terrorist groups, attacks on Pakistan increased," it added.

The report stated that according to Member State assessments, the TTP fighting strength range between 2,500 and 6,000. The report said that one Member State reported that TTP was "responsible for more than 100 cross-border attacks between July and October 2020."

The report also addressed the activities of the TTP and noted the “reunification of splinter groups [of TTP]" in Afghanistan as a point of concern. “Five entities pledged alliance to [the] TTP in July and August [2020], including the Shehryar Mehsud group, Jamaatul Ahrar (JuA), Hizbul Ahrar, the Amjad Farooqi group and the Usman Saifullah group [formerly known as Lashkar-e-Jhangvi].”

Pakistan had presented a dossier carrying undeniable evidence of Indian terrorism in Pakistan to United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

The DG ISPR had clearly narrated the matters pertaining to the Indian state terrorism.
