With sweat & blood of thousands of #Pakistanis, peace has been restored in our tribal areas along the border with #Afghanistan.

But #Pakistan haters in #Kabul are hellbent on creating ethnic discord & lawlessness in our towns & cities with online spread of ethnic propaganda.

/1
Objective is simple:

To fuel anti state misinformation in #Pakistan using millions of dollars in coordination with #Indian intel.

#NDS agents have laid an elaborate network & Imtiaz Wazir is their key operatives working as a go between of #PTM leadership & Afghan officials.

Other two officials who oversee international promotion of #PTM propaganda are ex Afghan Amb to #US Hamdullah Mohib currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Afghan President
&
His former deputy Majeed Qarar the cultural attaché at Afghan Embassy in Washington DC.

The maternity ward in West #Kabul supported by @MSF_Afghanistan was attacked by unknown gunmen, all women and newborns evacuated. Taliban deny involvement.

"The hospital was full of patients and doctors; there was total panic inside"
The last major attack on an MSF hospital in Afghanistan was conducted by the United States in the Kunduz massacre, where the U.S. deliberately targeted and executed doctors and patients.
Afghan special forces are currently clashing with terrorists that attacked the MSF hospital in Kabul. Newborns being rescued.

Just a typical day in #Kabul Abdi and Ghani declared themselves as presidents. Even American pressure couldn't overcome the fear #Afghanistan

Today's attack against the gathering of Afghan politicians which included Karzai, Abdullah, Mohaqiq, Khalili looks like the work of Islamic State (ISKP), which I predicted will act as a spoiler. All four survived the attack.

[Vid shows moment of attack]

While Afghanistan's top four politicians survived the attack, there are reports of several civilian deaths. The gathering was attacked with fire from a nearby under-construction building. #Kabul #Afghanistan
Taliban has already distanced itself from the attack.

It is also interesting that Abdullah, the chief rival of Ashraf Ghani was present at the gathering. I suppose the attack was also meant to serve as a message for him. #Kabul #Afghanistan

Why #AshrafGhani undermined #TUTAP's protest and Appreciates #PTM

#TUTAP project was proposed by #ADB (Asian Development Bank) in #Karzai's tenure. As per this project, 500-KV would be supplied to #Afghanistan and #Pakistan considering the power crisis in the region.

In 2016 Second Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish spoke out against routing the #TUTAP projects through #Salang rather than #Bamyan. He pointed to a 2013 assessment prepared by #Fichtner, a #German engineering consultancy,

1. The mess in #Libya is at least as complex as the mess in #Afghanistan: In Afghanistan the #Kabul-government, supported by #NATO, controls little more than Kabul.

In #Libya "Prime Minister" Fayez #Sarraj only controls a small part in the North, around #Tripoli.

#AnneWill
2. While Khalifa #Haftar, the commander of the Libyan National Army (#LNA), controls the larger part of #Libya. He does not control greater #Tripoli and in the South local warlords rule.

3. To make things more messy:
The "Prime Minister of Tripolis", Fayez #Sarraj, is supported by

(1/19) I left off yesterday with the #Taliban seizure of #Kabul in Sept. 1996. The #UnitedStates & much of the international community had largely ignored #Afghanistan since the 1989 Soviet withdrawal, so US policymakers, journalists, & others were startled by the Taliban's

#Iran

So if it comes to a invasion of #Iran there are several things to see and know. The #Geography is on the side of Iran. The #West is protected by a massiv #Chain of #mountains wich would be easy to #defend even with a weaker #army they could try to keep there a defend line
The north is not able to reach for the #US troops and the #caspiansee is #landlocked by many #nations. A inportant @NATO allie if the defens act works would be #Turkey wich would be forced to send troops against #Iran and a area mainly owned by #Kurds in #Iran.
the east has a little lower mountain chain and a bigger desert in the south west the #Dasht-e #Lut and is coverd by huge #rocks and the area of #Namak-#Zar inside Dasht-e Lut is the #hotest place on #earth actual. And the border area to #Pakistan is also coverd by a dry #desert

In analysing the history of #Afghanistan, scholars and historians often assessed the independence and autonomy of a given region based on their ability to resist an imposition of tax. Paying levies was therefore the way power-relations and supremacy was understood. 5/N.K.
In this sense, the #Hazarajat as a whole was what scholars often deemed as a “semi-independent” region. By 1891, aside from #Uruzgan, every other region (14 districts) of the #Hazarajat paid taxes to Abdur Rahman Khan. 6/N.K.
Most regions throughout the #Hazarajat were headed by ‘mirs’ or ‘khans’ and a system of feudalism operated throughout this sphere. 7/N.K.

The assassination attempt on @AmrullahSaleh2 is part of the effort to derail Pres #Trump's peace plan for #Afghanistan; comes just 4 days after #Pakistan Federal Minister visited #Panjshir Valley & Mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud, in a major policy shift for Pakistan.
The visit by @ShehryarAfridi1 to the #Panjshir mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud marked a policy shift in #Pakistan away from #Taliban, indicating equal respect for all #Afghans, & support from #Islamabad for the exceptional efforts of @US4AfghanPeace
