Pakistani military personnel are claiming that Afghanistan is a safe place for TTP and other terrorists who shed the blood of Pakistanis.
Inter-Services Public Relations Pakistan in a statement said that yesterday General Syed Asim Munir, Pakistan's Chief of Army Staff, during a visit with injured soldiers of the recent terrorist attack in Zhob, briefed that “the involvement of Afghan nationals in acts of terrorism in Pakistan is another important concern that needs to be addressed. Such attacks are intolerable and would elicit an effective response from the Security Forces of Pakistan.”
General Syed Asim Munir, expressed “serious concerns” and claimed that "safe havens and liberty of action were available to TTP in Afghanistan.”
Khawaja Muhammad Asif, Pakistan’s defense minister, also tweeted that Afghanistan is not fulfilling obligations as a neighbor and brother country and is not abiding by the Doha agreement.
Khawaja Muhammad Asif claimed that the terrorists who shed the blood of Pakistanis can find refuge on Afghan soil.
This comes as nine soldiers died after militants stormed an army base in Pakistan's southern Balochistan province, and three more were killed in an exchange of fire in the area on Wednesday.
Zabihullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, in reaction to recent remarks of Pakistani military officials said that Afghan soil will not be used against other countries, particularly neighbors.
“This is the fact that we never permit anyone to use Afghanistan’s soil against other countries,” said Mujahid.
