16th December 1971 – Pakistan was stabbed in the back by its enemies with the help of Mukti Bahini and once again on December 16, the nation gets stabbed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan; the handlers in both cases being the same, those who never accepted Pakistan as a sovereign country.
A bloody Taliban raid on an army-run school in Peshawar ended last night. According to sources, 9 attackers were killed, 3 soldiers martyred and 7 special security personnel sustained injuries during the operation. The assault on the school martyred at least 145 people and injured 114, majority of them children.
SSG’s Zarrar Company commandos were air lifted to Peshawar from Tarbela via helicopters. The soldiers went block by block and room by room to clear the building, starting from the Principal’s office. The terrorists were wearing suicide vests, most of them blew themselves during the operation. The ISPR says that all the four blocks of the school have been cleared by security forces.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan accepted the responsibility for the attack, saying they had ordered the target killers and suicide attackers to shoot the older students but not the small children.
The students saved by the security forces later told that the militants were speaking Arabic and children were killed at point blank range. Students added that the attackers came from the backside of the school building. First they opened aerial fire and later started targeting students. Read the rest of this entry »

The Miranshah Tehsil remained on the military radar on the sixth day of the counter insurgency operation. So far 232 militants have been killed and 20 hideouts have been pummeled by the security forces.
A substantial number of IDP’s reached Bannu today after the three days relaxation in curfew by the authorities. The thorough vetting of IDP by military personnel resulted in the arrest of 24 suspected militants when they tried to flee with other civilians at the various check posts of Mir Ali and Miranshah. Three locals were also apprehended when they failed to prove their identities.
At least 12 militants, including foreigners were killed today in the Army Aviation Corps strikes in Qutub Khel area of Miranshah. The military officials allege that a huge cache of weaponry was also destroyed. The artillery was also used to target militant hideouts at a considerable distance.
TTP splinter group led by an influential commander, Abid Mucharr was also raided by Sindh Rangers in Mangophir, Karachi. The ensuing standoff left two terrorists dead and two security personnel injured. A shrine in federal capital has also been bombed by the militants, resulting in the injury of 40 devotees, according to media reports.
A large number of people migrated towards the safer areas, on the third and last day of curfew relaxation by the political authorities. The transportation of civilian evacuees from the operation affected areas of North Waziristan to Bannu under the security of armed forces jammed the connecting road, which was eventually cleared by evening.
Till now 200,000 persons have been evacuated from the area, as per the figures presented by authorities. The statistical figures further claimed that around 400 Afghan families have already left North Waziristan Agency for Afghanistan through the border village of Ghulam Khan Tehsil.
The staff on check points has also been increased to expedite the process of registration. The mobile vans of National Database & Registration Authorities have also been stationed for the facilitation purpose at IDP registration points.
Prime Minister Mr. Nawaz Sharif was briefed about the Zarb-e-Azb and IDP evacuation arrangements when he visited the Peshawar Corps HQ along with the COAS General Raheel Sharif today.
Mr. Hamid Karzai, the President of Afghanistan was once again requested by Mr. Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Chief Minister Balochistan on the behalf of PM Nawaz to end the support of TTP and aid in extradition of Mullah Fazlullah, the top boss of Tehreek-e-Taliban from Afghanistan. The dismantling of the militancy outfits and their hideouts in Kunar and Nuristan provinces of Afghanistan were expounded upon by Mr. Achakzai in his phone call.

A Shuhada (Martyrs) Convention was held today, under the auspices of Jamat-ud-Dawa, to dispel the deliberate confusions being created in the society following the bombing of Hakimullah Mehsud in a drone strike. Attended by 3000 religious scholars, it was resolved that deliberate confusion is being created by certain segments of the society about ‘martyrdom’ status of the slain warriors.
The religious scholars stressed that the terrorists are increasingly resorting to the menace of Takfeerism (declaring Muslims as Infidels), to justify their atrocities and nefarious aims. It was further underscored that the US is using drone strikes to target tribal Muslims, who as a reaction are resorting to terrorism activities and sabotage.
Appealing to the Government of Pakistan and all the religious-political parties, the scholars pointed out that they should direct their activities towards the real enemy, and shouldn’t confuse the masses in unnecessary debates of attainment of ‘martyrdom’.
Lauding the sacrifices of Pakistani armed forces, the highly learned participants iterated that the Pakistani nation would stand alongside its armed forces, and will give a befitting reply to anyone who dare gaze at Pakistan with mal-intent.
At the end of the conference, a resolution was passed stating that the Government of Pakistan should part way with the United States on the so called ‘War on Terror’, stop the US from carrying on drone strikes on Pakistan’s soil, and carry on negotiations with TTP militants so that peace can be maintained.
