Taliban launches major offensive in Pakistan’s Chitral district, captures villages amid clashes

In a significant development, Pakistan Taliban, also known as Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), launched a major offensive in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Chitral district. The rebels managed to capture several villages and clashed with Pakistani military personnel. The operation began at 4 am today.

Amidst the chaos, TTP spokesperson Muhammad Khurasani gave a message to the people of Chitral and urged them to remain calm. Khorasani stresses that his struggle is not against the local population, but against the powerful security forces, who he sees as violators of their rights. While unverified videos circulate, depicting TTP presence in Chitral district and alleged capture of soldiers, their authenticity remains uncertain.

Rising Terrorist Activities in Pakistan

However, a senior Pakistani security official refuted TTP’s claims, and said that the terrorists had not gained control of any territory. The TTP announced a wider conflict against the Pakistani military in November 2022, and vowed to establish Sharia law within Pakistan’s borders. In recent times, Pakistan has seen an increase in terrorist activities due to TTP. The group, suspected to have close ties to al-Qaeda, has been held responsible for several deadly attacks across the country.
