Pakistan ID cards seized from terrorists in Afghanistan blowing Islamabad’s claim of not aiding terrorist outfits
In an incident which uncovers Pakistan’s complicity in aiding terrorist outfits to create unrest in Afghanistan, Pakistani ID cards were recovered from the bodies of terrorists killed in Afghanistan’s Kandahar.
Security forces killed five terrorists in Maroof and nine others in Arghistan districts of the province, said Kandahar’s police chief Gen Tadin Khan Achakzai.
Some ID cards read names in Urdu, identifying the dead terrorists as Abdul Ghani, Abdul Ghaffar, Sanaullah, Naqibullah, Obaidullah, Abdul Malik among others.
In another attack, 25 Taliban terrorists, including 12 Pakistanis, were killed in an airstrike by NATO Rescue Support in the Takht-e-Pol town of Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.
The arrest of Abdullah Orakzai alias Aslam Farooqi, a key leader of the Islamic State in Khorasan Province (ISKP) earlier this year brought the terror group’s Pakistani connections into sharp focus, according to Amsterdam-based think-tank European Foundation For South Asian Studies (EFSAS).
The UN Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team to the 1988 Sanctions Committee in its 2019 report had acknowledged that nearly 5,000 terrorists belonging to Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, which is based in Pakistan, were active in Kunar and Nangarhar provinces of Afghanistan alone.
