Islamabad: Pakistan on Friday announced a full-scale anti-terror campaign against outlawed groups in an effort to eradicate terrorism from the nation, according to Geo News.

The National Security Committee (NSC) meeting, which lasted for two hours and was presided over by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, brought about the development, according to a statement from the PM’s office.

The breakdown of a truce with the illegal Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has led to an increase in recent terrorist-police skirmishes in Pakistan, which is indicative of the fragile security situation there.

This all-encompassing and thorough operation will target all aspects of terrorism in Pakistan, including the political, diplomatic, security, economic, and social spheres.

Senior military officers, including Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Shamshad Mirza, were present, according to Geo News.

According to the statement, “the meeting decided to launch an all-out, comprehensive operation — with renewed vigour and determination — with the [help] of the entire nation and the government, which will rid the country of the threat of terrorism.”

59 police officers were attacked in 2021, compared to 36 in 2017, 30 in 2018, 38 in 2019, and 28 in 2020. But in 2022, there were more than 120 police casualties, and by the first three months of 2023, the death toll had already surpassed that of 2022.

For the past few years, heavy weapons and grenades have been used to attack police stations in various locations.

The News International said that the most recent incidence this year took place in Lakki Marwat, when DSP Iqbal Momand and three other police officers perished after their armoured personnel carrier was harmed by a roadside improvised explosive device.

The suicide bomber who detonated explosives around his vest in the mosque of the Peshawar Police Lines during the Zuhr prayers in January was responsible for the biggest attack on police this year.

According to The News International, 96 of the victims were cops, some of whom passed away in the hospital. Senior officials estimated that 100 people were killed in the incident.

In Pakistan, terrorism has just returned. Terrorist groups have been carrying out assaults around the nation with almost complete impunity in recent months, particularly in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan, worsening the law and order situation in the nation.

The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has escalated its attacks since the discussions with the terrorist organisation ended in November, focusing primarily on the police in KP and the regions bordering Afghanistan. According to Dawn, insurgents in Baluchistan have formalised a connection to the TTP, an illegal organization, and increased their violent actions.
