To prepare this report, the monitoring team provided an analysis of war-torn countries and their growing militant groups, including Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and interviewed experts, including locals, who know the militant groups closely. ۔
The monitoring team’s report also maps out the situation following the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan. In which it has been revealed that the operatives of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who have taken refuge in Afghanistan can attack Pakistan from across the border.
The report further said that the TTP and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar were increasing their financial resources through extortion, smuggling and forced taxes, which could be a precursor to terrorism.
The contents of the report also support Pakistan’s position that TTP operatives have been granted asylum in Afghanistan and have the blessings of Prussia.
