The other side of #Gaza that terror groups try to hide
Sharing this side of #Gaza immediately unsettles and disturbs sympathizers of foreign-backed militant groups who rush to hide this under their one-sided narrative to keep Gaza residents hostage and continue exploiting their misery:

سعودی سیکیورٹی حکام کے پاس شواہد بڑھ رہے ہیں کہ تین ملکوں میں مقیم افراد نے ایک منظم پلان کے تحت مسجد نبوی میں گزشتہ ہفتے فسادات کروانے کی کوشش کی اور پاکستان میں ایک سیاسی جماعت کے گرد ماسٹر مائنڈ ہونے کے شبہات ہیں./1

Actions and policies of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan and his #PTIGovernment have led to arrests, denial of jobs, travel bans, and deportations of Pakistanis from #Turkey#UAE#France#SaudiArabia#China. All in just three years. The latest is Saudi crackdown on pro-Khan Pakistanis. /1
In April, ex-PM #ImranKhan's incitement was responsible for Pakistanis getting radicalized in two countries: #Turkey+#SaudiArabia. 🇹🇷 arrested 27 pro-Khan Pakistanis on Apr 12. 🇸🇦 has repeatedly arrested Khan sympathizers in 2019+2020+2021 & 2022. /2
April is proving to be a historic month in modern history of #Pakistan. After Supreme Court intervention and Parliament vote that ousted ex-PM for first time in 75 years, 🇵🇰 now has the youngest Foreign Minister in its history: @BBhuttoZardari. /1
Ex-PM #ImranKhan dragged #Cuba into domestic #Pakistan politics by using sanctions on Cuban people as something Pakistanis should look up to. This cynical analogy was unfair to both great nations. One more damage from the previous govt added to PM @CMShehbaz's repair list.
Federal Minister @betterpakistan represents many Pakistanis who believe #Pakistan should not be like #Cuba/#NorthKorea; and is within his rights to respond to the statement by ex-PM #ImranKhan who advised Pakistanis at an international forum to learn to live under sanctions.

#Pakistan's top security forum, the #NSC, attended by top Govt, military, and intelligence officials, chaired by PM @CMShehbaz, concludes there is no "foreign conspiracy" behind ex-PM #ImranKhan's exit from power after he lost parliamentary majority and was voted out. /1
Ex-PM #ImranKhan's conspiracy claim debunked by #Pakistan's top security forum:
"NSC discussed telegram from 🇵🇰 Emb in 🇺🇸 (...) informed by premier security agencies they found no evidence of any conspiracy (...) The NSC (...) concludes there has been no foreign conspiracy." /2

Ex-PM #ImranKhan addressing a rally. Entire focus is on incitement, using vocabulary reminiscent of 1960s Mideast: conspiracy+colonialism+anti-Americanism+religion; & 15yo drone attacks. Xenophobia was used as a political tool for yrs. Khan has hijacked it to unsettle #Pakistan.
Besides the above, ex-PM's strategy is to present himself as a victim of alleged international conspiracy instead of accountability for why his govt crashed under inexperience+mismanagement, squandering an impressive 2018 victory. /2

Picture of the day: What kosher/halal #American intervention in #Pakistan politics looks like.
Former Federal Minister Dr @ShireenMazari1: Parliament Committee approves Sikandar Sultan Raja as Chief Election Commissioner through consensus after 13 sessions.
Ex-PM @ImranKhanPTI: Establishment/Military suggested the name of chief election Commissioner. /1
DeC 2019 - then Federal Minister tells media after chairing a parliamentary committee meeting representing all political parties that a consensus is developing over a candidate's name for chief election commissioner acceptable to all, including to #PTI. /2
A probe is underway into links bw #Pakistan's former Amb in Washington to then #PTIGovernment. Probe to determine if Amb was a candidate for appointment as Foreign Secretary. His diplomatic cable was compromised to produce a #US conspiracy claim used by ex-PM to create a crisis.
Determining the nature of links between the former Ambassador in Washington and the #PTI-led government is key to understanding his role in creating a serious constitutional, political, and foreign policy crisis that has unsettled #Pakistan. /2
Ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan warned a rally crowd in #Pakistan's largest city that the #US "imposed" a new PM on the country, telling them 400 American drones attacked "weddings, schools, children" more than a decade ago.
But Khan has 2 messages on 🇺🇸:
One inside 🇵🇰 Another abroad /1
Annual violence in #Jerusalem in #Ramadan at holy places. Members of militant groups wanted by #Palestinian & #Israel security play football inside #MasjidAlAqsa. Local security accuses them of sparking violence during holy month for political reasons. /1 #Israel security released this video four hours ago to contain damage from earlier videos of rioting by members of militant groups. 26,000 worshippers entered #MasjidAlAqsa grounds peacefully today for Friday prayers after rioters were cleared. /2
Elected with 174 votes with the backing and support of #Pakistan's major political parties @pmln_org@MediaCellPPP@OfficialMqm@MoulanaOfficial#Pakistan's new Prime Minister @CMShehbaz comes with several honors: first to become PM with the support of 🇵🇰's all of the major parties; brother to 🇵🇰's only thrice elected PM; and comes with foreign policy experience, and ties with 🇵🇰's key international partners.

Massive vilification campaign targeting #Pakistan, the Supreme Court, Parliament, and Armed Forces has been traced to individuals close to ex-PM #ImranKhan's inner circle, including spreading fake story of a #US drone attack on 🇵🇰, meant to bolster Khan's anti-West narrative. /1
A key aide to former PM #ImranKhan is sought by @FIA_Agency for links to a massive anti-#Pakistan campaign in retaliation to decisions by the Supreme Court and Parliament nullifying Khan's illegal actions and ousting him in a historic vote. /2
