TTP's New Chapter: Thread
Last year, two smaller groups formerly aligned with the Afghan #Taliban joined #TTP. Led by Mullah Aslam Baloch from Noshki and Mazar #Baloch from #Makran. in 2023, two more smaller groups joined TTP. Today it announced new chapter in #Balochistan Image
This new 'Wilayah' will encompass the Kalat and Makran divisions of #Balochistan. It signifies the establishment of a proper organizational structure, becoming the second administrative unit of #TTP in Balochistan after Wilayah Zhob Makran Division MapKalat Divison Map

The #TTP occupation in #Swat is significantly more than is being reported in the domestic media.

Many villages are under TTP control, and search operations have been on-going for more than 5 months.

It is no surprise that the TTP has returned to Swat for us @commandeleven.
For the past 3 years, we have repeatedly informed and warned that the TTP presence was growing and their influence was increasing.

Deaf ears.

We have repeatedly argued against the negotiating table, because it is a sign of weakness.

Why should we negotiate?
The news of Gen. #FaizHameed's deal to hand over parts of #KPK to #TTP, in return for peace for the country - that is accepting defeat and emboldening the enemy.

Is it any surprise that there was a significant uptick in violence from December onwards, when TTP walked away again?

#Afghanistan | 🧵

1/ On the evening of Feb 8, at least several hundred people gathered at #Kabul International Airport after rumours circulated of flights to Turkey being arranged for Afghans to support the earthquake relief effort, with all visa requirements being waived. Image
2/ On Feb 19, the Taliban’s GDI released a video showing the ‘confession’ of two #Afghan satirists, Imran Ahmadzai and Sadullah Didan, who were accused of spreading the rumours of the flights to #Turkey, as well as anti-regime propaganda. Image
3/ AW found three posts by Ahmadzai on Feb 8, when the rush to the airport was underway, and he pretended to be among the crowds. All the posts generated a reasonable level of engagement but not at a level likely to have been a major catalyst to the rumours of flights to #Turkey.

Yesterday, members of the #AfghanEvac coalition joined volunteers from across the ecosystem for a @WhiteHouse event hosted by the NSC to recognize the work of the dedicated Afghans & volunteers who put their hearts and souls into this relocation & resettlement effort.
While there are many hundreds & thousands of other dedicated folks who have been involved in this effort, this small group represents the wide range of volunteers who continue to work to ensure our Afghan friends can begin new lives here and pursue their own American dream.
A nonpartisan effort like none other, the volunteers all across this ecosystem represent the best of America, combining a wholesale commitment to our #Afghan allies, the willingness to do hard and heartbreaking work, and the unparalleled dedication to see it through to the end.

We reported in February on this issue (…) and now we can reveal even more.
#Afghan resources are worth up to US$4 trillion and many countries, from the Soviets to Americans, wanted access since 1979. They all failed due to violence, war et al
Other players also wanted to enter the market, keen to access rare earths, lithium and other vital resources in the race to win the new war over so-called green energies. Andrew Forrest is a prominent Australian and supporter of moving away from fossil fuels.

A local journalist:
"Fighting between AFG & PAK border forces started in 'Shiro Oba' area, in Spin Boldak-Chaman crossing point (on #Durand_Line), in Kandahar Province.
The #clash started when AFG forces were building new check posts in the area & Pakistani side prevented them."
The #Taliban confirmed clashes in Spin Boldak of Kandahar, but didn't provide details about the reason& casualties.
There are conflicting news about the status of the crossing point. Some sources said it was closed, others reporting about reopening of the gate.

Since #WWII, #USA has used #USdollar hegemony to transfer domestic crises, harvest world #wealth and undermine the economic and financial stability of other countries through armed conflicts, financial wars, and trade wars.

#Afghan National Anthem throughout the years. This anthem was adopted in 1926. Imagine playing this during a cricket or football match. It's not going to motivate anyone....
This anthem was adopted between 1973 - 1978. It's the President's favourite. The emphasis is on unity and a single identity for all. All working towards a United and prosperous #Afghanistan.
The situation is obviously a bit muddy at the moment.
This anthem from 1978-1991. Communism is written all over it. 😂
