The Pakistan Army said on Friday that four of its soldiers were killed in a shootout with the Pakistani Taliban. It is the deadliest confrontation between the armed group and Pakistan security forces since the ceasefire ended earlier this month. The Pakistani military said security forces had raided two positions in an old Pakistani Taliban stronghold near Afghanistan.

The first raid was carried out in the Tank District in the northwest in which two armed fighters were killed, the statement said. The second raid took place in North Waziristan district in which a fighter was taken into custody before four soldiers were killed. Security forces were raiding suspected hideouts in North Waziristan’s Mir Ali town when he died in a fierce gunfight. The army said that a ‘terrorist’ has been apprehended with arms and ammunition.

TTP confirmed the raid
According to the Pakistan Army, the soldiers seized a cache of weapons during both the raids. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is also known as ‘Pakistani Talibani’. It is a terrorist organization of Pakistan whose roots are linked to the Afghan Taliban. The TTP has confirmed that the Army had raided one of its hideouts. The troubled area along the Pakistan and Afghanistan border has long been a stronghold for groups such as the TTP, which operates from Afghanistan.

Notorious for the Peshawar attack of 2014
TTP was established in 2007. The organization is notorious for the 2014 Peshawar school attack in which 150 children were killed. In return, Pakistan took concrete steps to crush the TTP, forcing the organization’s fighters to hide in Afghanistan. After the Taliban capture of Kabul, the TTP is once again raising its head, which Pakistan is trying to stop.

The deal between TTP and Pakistan failed
The Pakistani Taliban claims that it has carried out a total of 45 attacks till the period of December 2021. This includes 14 attacks in North Waziristan Agency, 14 in Bajaur Agency, 4 in Dera Ismail Khan, 3 in Peshawar and 3 in Bannu. The TTP and Pakistan had agreed to a settlement in November. But that failed on 10 December, when hardliners accused the Pakistani government of violating the terms of the deal.
