Pakistan and Afghanistan relations are on a boil. In the past few months while there has been simmering tensions on the Durand Line, the Tehreek-i-Taliban (TTP) threat has grown exponentially. On November 28, 2022, the TTP ended the indefinite ceasefire with the Pakistan government, which was called in June 2022. In its statement, the TTP accused the Pakistan state of not adhering to the ceasefire. It pointed out various security operations by the Pakistani security forces, particularly a recent operation in Lakki Marwat area of the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KPK) province, as the main reason for ending the ceasefire[1]. A TTP statement urged its fighters to resume attacks in retaliation for the continuous military campaign against them. Since then, there has been a spate of attacks by the TTP that has combined suicide bombings and hostage taking, without giving up classic guerrilla warfare tactics.
