Since the Taliban reclaimed power in Afghanistan in 2021, attacks in Pakistani border districts have increased dramatically. Pakistan alleges that Afghanistan is facilitating allied terrorists such as the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). It allows them to strike with impunity on Pakistan.
According to figures released by the Department of Interior and Tribal Affairs KP, the areas most hit by terrorism are Peshawar, Khyber, and Bajaur. As well as Tank, Dera Ismail Khan, North Waziristan, and South Waziristan.
According to Geo based on Home and Tribal Areas statistics, a total of 1,050 incidences of terrorism occurred in KP last year. However, 419 attacks happened in organized districts and 631 terrorist attacks in merged districts.
