Terrorist threat increasing to Pakistan from Afghan soil: UN report

Terrorist threat increasing to Pakistan from Afghan soil: UN report

NEW YORK (92 News) - A recent UN report, that focus on global threat posed by Al-Qaeda, Da’esh and related groups, has drawn attention to the increasing cross-border terrorist threat to Pakistan from the Afghan soil.

The 28th report of the UN Monitoring Team submitted to the UN Security Council, reiterates findings of the earlier UN reports that had pointed out similar cross-border terrorist threat posed by proscribed TTP to Pakistan.

The latest UN Monitoring Team report also notes that the TTP has increased its financial resources from extortion, smuggling and taxes.

These UN reports back Pakistan’s strong concerns regarding the TTP and other terrorist groups' operations from Afghanistan.

Last year, Islamabad shared strong evidence of Indian support to the TTP and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar in carrying out terrorist attacks against Pakistan.

According to diplomatic sources, the Indian sponsorship and financing of such terror outfits is not only aimed at undermining Pakistan’s gains against these groups, but it also aims to spoil any chances of peace and stability in Afghanistan.
