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.

ISW & @criticalthreats are tracking the latest developments in #Pakistan, where hostility between former Prime Minister Imran #Khan's Tehrik-e-Insaf Party (PTI) and the Pakistani military had led PTI protesters to target military and police infrastructure across the country. 🧵⬇️
2/ Demonstrators set fire to multiple police stations in #Islamabad and exchanged small arms fire with #Pakistani security forces outside the Frontier Corps’ headquarters in #Peshawar on May 10.
3/ The #Pakistani government may choose to expand its crackdown against the PTI in response to attacks on the military, which could exacerbate the protests and open new security gaps that Salafi-jihadi groups could exploit.

Understanding TTP, Al-Qaeda & TTA 🧵

Al-Qaeda/TTA off shoot of Mujahideen:

Al-Qaeda appeared as an org & it strengthened its roots in Middle East, Central Asia & Africa. It was founded after the end of the Soviet war in 80s by Bin Laden. This was a sunni- salfi jihadist.

TTA was founded by Mullah Omar, a group consisting of 50 Talibs (students) in #Kandahar in 1994. It was a Deobandi Islamic fundamentalist org. Mujahedeen from #Pakistan joined #Taliban movement in #Afghanistan after the Soviet withdrawal.

History of TTP:

#TTP was officially established in Dec 2007 under the leadership of militant commander Baitullah Mehsud.

The group emerged as an alliance of fighters and radicals belonging to diverse backgrounds, tribes and nationalities.

DC lobbyists working for ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan in action. No Pakistani politician had such meets out of govt. Until recently, Khan accused Pakistanis meeting 🇺🇸 officials of "slavery" & championed one of the biggest campaigns of anti-Americanism #Pakistan has seen in decades./1
#ImranKhan and #PTI probably caused the single biggest damage to historic #Pakistan-#US ties, moving anti-Americanism from extremist and militant circles to middle class Pakistani drawing rooms.

Since a few days have passed and thing have "relatively" calmed down, I want to comment on the optics of bringing out APCs in #Lahore Cantt. You all have seen the images go viral on this platform, and some were rightly outraged. 1/n
However, this isn't the first time #PakistanArmy brought out APCs against protesting public. Many years ago, there was a dispute between farmers and the Army over some land in #Okara. That's when this image was shot. For me, personally, it became of the most defining images 2/n
of how the Army behaves in the country. My shock stemmed from the fact that my father commanded 40 AK, which is equipped with TOW mounted APCs for hunting enemy tanks. How could the Army bring out APCs - which are essentially troop carriers - mounted with machine 3/n

The attack on #ImranKhan today was amateurish and clumsy. Could have been lethal but wasn't. The way Khan and his party are exaggerating its planning and execution without any investigation, shows design to extract political milage and turn the tables on the Govt and Military.
Apparently #ImranKhan party activists protesting outside a military building in #Peshawar, a sign of the radicalization of a generation of Pakistanis under #ImranKhan 2011-2022. #PTI incited protests without waiting for a probe by its own Govt in #Punjab where attack occurred. /2
Result of #ImranKhan and #PTI's incessant anti-military incitement. Khan's party rules the province and runs the police service where the attack on Khan occurred today. PTI Govt is yet to release its findings. /3

Amid rising anti-#US+#EU rhetoric in #Pakistan post-#Ukraine invasion & PM's #Russia visit, it is important to refocus on rising terror incidents in the country and the linkages to #Afghanistan #Iran and #India and the easily exploitable local actors. /1
The waves of organized terrorism in Pakistan since 1980s and through 2000s have been linked to elements in #Afghanistan. It accelerated with the #India-#Iran nexus in that country. Made easier by local extremism, easy & gullible Pakistani recruits, and regional sponsors. /2
#Peshawar mosque carnage targeting Pakistani Shia Muslims is particularly worth a closer look. It indirectly targeted the #Australia cricket team visit after 23 yrs and tried to revive sectarian conflict. Both objectives have wider linkages to #India #Iran #Afghanistan /3

A Thread on #Peshawar #Mayor #Election #2021 @PTIofficial @PTIKPOfficial @PTIKPKNews not learning from past. Every city, locality has different politics & when it comes to local bodies, situation becomes more thin.
NA1 was the seat, people of Peshawar elected Imran Khan, however
upon leaving the ticket was awarded to some Bacha Gul, an unknown person, as per my belief not even from the country. Result, Mr. Ghulam Bilour winning the same. @ImranKhanPTI totally ignored the local workers and nominated an outsiders, obviously on the ill advice of
his close group. Just because Mr. Bacha Gul spread some money around.
Lesson, dont bring imported candidates to elections.
However, it was not learned, soon forgotten and for the Mayor of Peshawar, Mr. Rizwan ullah Khan Bangash was selected, under which criteria?
