Some interesting reports coming out of #Afghanistan over the past few days:

- roughly 2,000 #Taliban suicide bombers have been moved to the #Iran|ian border since the end of May.
- #ISKP has also started moving their fighters to northern #Afghanistan, according to sources within an anti-#Taliban group. They are being moved to #Badakhshan, #Takhar and some others.

Apparently, there are both @CIA and #ISI fingerprints on this.
- #Taliban are moving its fighters closer to the #Tajikistan border. Fighters are also moving to the #Badakhshan province, bordering #Tajikistan.

- #TTP have become so emboldened to expand their operations around #Pakistan, including new waliyats in #Balochistan & #Punjab.

Let's take this thread into more context for those outside the region, and those unfamiliar with the #TTP operations in #Swat.

The #TTP typically move through 2 routes:

- from #Afghanistan to #Elum in #Buner to either of their bases in #Ghat, south of #MalamJabba.
The 2nd route is from #Kunar, #Afghanistan through #LowerDir or #Bajaur to #GhatPeochar, the former stronghold of the #TTP during #Fazlullah's occupation of #Swat.

It was also one of the most difficult battle is the fight to reclaim Swat from the #terrorists.
We know of both police and military operations on going in areas including #GhatPeochar, mountains around #MalamJabba, #Charbagh, and #Banjot.

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?

A police officer who was suspended twice for violent behaviour was deployed at a children’s (girls) school!#Swat

The last place he should’ve been positioned with a gun in hand!

& today, he opened fire at them. 1 in nursery killed,multiple injured & traumatised.

Nobody tweeted? ImageImageImage
Who’s responsible?…
Heard a lot of people say that in the khutbas at mosques, girl education is shunned, discouraged & is deemed unIslamic (whereas learning is FARZ on everyone regardless of gender).

So, a lot of people are guessing this could be his way of ‘playing his part’.

خیبرپختونخواہ میں گزشتہ ماہ بھتہ خوری اور ٹارگٹ کلنگ کے متعدد واقعات سامنے آۓ ہیں۔ ان واقعات کے پیچھے کیا وجوہات ہیں؟ کیا یہ دہشتگردی کے واقعات ہیں یا اس کے پیچھے سول انتظامیہ کی نااہلی پوشیدہ ہے؟ 👇
پے درپے واقعات سے صوبائی حکومت و سول انتظامیہ کی لاتعلقی کیا ظاہر کرتی ہے؟ وین واقعہ کے بعد مظاہرین سے کوئی بھی صوبائی حکومتی رکن ملاقات کو کیوں نہ پہنچا؟
سول انتظامیہ کی غفلت معنی خیز ہے!👇
عمران خان نے پولیس کی انویسٹیگیشن رپورٹ آنے سے قبل ہی میڈیا سے یہ کیوں کہا کہ ہمیں بتایا جا رہا ہے یہ دہشتگردی کا واقعہ ہے؟KPK سول انتظامیہ صوبہ کا انتظام و انصرام سنبھالنے میں ناکام نظر آرہی ہے۔ ٹارگٹ کلنگ؛ بھتہ خوری؛ پرائمری اساتذہ کے مسائل صوبہ گندم کے بحران کا شکار 👇

یاد رکھو پاکستان پچھلے 20 سال ایک خون ریز جنگ سے بمشکل باہر نکلا ہے یہ جنگ ایک ڈکٹیٹر شخص نے اپنےاقتدار کی خاطر ہم پر مسلط کروائی اور اس جنگ میں اس ملک کی اسی ہزار عوام نے اپنی جان کی قربانیاں دی اور قربانیاں دیکر اس جنگ کے شعلوں کو اپنے لہو سے بجھایااور اس
@OfficialDGISPR Image
جنگ میں اسی ہزار شہید ہونے والے پاکستانیوں میں ہر صوبے کے لوگ شامل تھے۔۔

اب سوات اور کے پی میں اپنے مفادات کے لیے ہم پر پھر ایک گروہ کو مسلط کرنے کی کوشش کی جارہی ہے۔ جس کی ہلکی ہلکی تپش محسوس ہونا شروع ہوچکی ہے اور جن کا کام اس کو روکنا ہے وہ سب عمران خان کو روکنے میں لگے ہیں۔۔
یہ لوگ دن رات اسی کام میں لگے۔۔

ان دہشت گردوں کا مقابلہ دو طرح سے ہوگا۔۔ ایک سیاسی طور پر اور دوسرا سیکورٹی فورسز کی جانب سے۔ ارباب اختیار کو عمران خان کے علاوہ اس چیز پر بھی دھیان دینا چاہیے یہی تصور کرلیں کہ یہ عمران خان ہے۔۔اور اپنی اصل زمہ داری کی طرف توجہ دیں۔۔

Mini hilo #Usa, detención de un individuo peligroso, por una Unidad #Swat, con la capacidad #K9.
El suspect huye, sueltan al K9, el tipo en la huida saca un arma y cuanto es derribado por el can, dirige el arma al mismo. Llega el operador swat, observa la situación y sin dudarlo
busca ángulo de tiro, grita "Gun" Y dispara, NO DUDA, se acuerdan del compañero de #Alcobendas que cae al suelo Y nadie le cubre?
Este agente del swat, un patrullero yanki hubiera hecho lo mismo, ve en peligro al K9, y dispara, hasta cuando? HASTA QUE LA AMENAZA CESA. Insisto
NO DUDA. La vida de un K9, es la vida de un compañero.

Another startup, called #PakVitae, is providing a filter product that does not require electricity. Using gravity and attaching to the bottom of #water containers, the filters can provide up to 10,000 litres.

We’ve spent 3 years in #Swat monitoring the movement & activities of the #TTP here.

Keep in mind, I am a resident of Swat & have access to places & people who others don’t.

There are 3 types of #TTP operational in Swat currently.
Type 1: The Criminal Element

There is a criminal element operating in #Swat for many years since the #TTP was defeated in 2009. This element follows the same physical attributes of the TTP, but are involved in kidnappings & murders.
Type 2: The Original #TTP Swat

When the TTP was an occupying force in #Swat from 2007-09, they were brutal in their punishments & torture, to the extent that the TTP Swat chapter was expelled from the overall structure.

Policing is facing #recruitment crisis: # applicants continue to ↓ across continent.

One tool freq used by #police = recruitment videos. But what do these videos highlight & how can they affect who applies?

In new article, I explore these ?s:…


1/15 Image
Police #recruitment #videos serve several related functions, incl to:

1. Attract prospective applicants to the PD;

2. Communicate specific roles, responsibilities & benefits of a career with the PD;

3. Help prospective applicants assess their potential with the PD.

In light of their functions, it’s important to consider how content of #videos may impact who applies for #policing #careers, and, in turn, who becomes police officers.

This is especially relevant given the challenges currently facing #policing, like the legitimacy crisis.

This is going to be a long thread.🧵 #Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost released BCI case files from an officer-involved shooting last year in #Parma. He touted “full transparency” from the @OhioAG’s office. @DaveYostOH redacted names of 3 #SWAT officers who fired their weapons.
In June 2021, Kevin Giesel was shot & killed by officers from the Southwest Enforcement Bureau (SEB) #SWAT team during a 10-hour standoff at his house in #Parma. Giesel was a 64-year-old #Vietnam #veteran. He got into a shootout with #police officers.…
To be clear, I am in no way questioning why officers used deadly force or why a grand jury declined to indict the #police officers. I’m questioning the @OhioAG’s lack of transparency at a time when confidence in law enforcement is at an all-time low both in #Ohio & nationwide.
