Pakistani Taliban claim
Terrorist attacks have increased in Pakistan in recent months, especially in the provinces of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.
Islamabad argues that these attacks were planned and directed by the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) based in Afghanistan. Afghanistan denies these allegations.
102 people, most of them police officers, were killed in the suicide attack on the mosque during the noon prayer on January 30 in Peshawar, and 10 police officers were killed in the suicide attack on March 6 in Balochistan.
On May 19, a suicide attack was carried out on the convoy of the leader of the Jamaat-e-Islami Party, Siraj al-Haq, in the Zhob region of Balochistan. The Secretary General of the party, Emirül Azim, announced that the leader of the party, Hak, survived the suicide attack without injury, and that the attacker died.
