From Afghanistan, 23 terrorist organizations spread terrorism in around 53 countries, including the U.S., China, and Pakistan.

Pakistan is one of the top targets of terrorism in Afghanistan. As per reports, 17 out of 23 terrorist organizations target only Pakistan.

TTP, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, and Baloch terrorist organizations are among the organizations spreading terrorism from Afghanistan to Pakistan.

From Afghanistan, Al-Qaeda targets Europe and America, Tehreek-e-Islami Turkmenistan targets China, and IMU targets Uzbekistan

From Afghanistan, Jundullah spreads terrorism in Iran and ISIS in Europe and America, while Hizb ut-Tahrir and Jamaat-ul-Ahrar spread terrorism in Pakistan.

Afghanistan is regularly providing financial support to terrorist organizations in the region.

The TTP and Afghan support played a central role in the rising tide of terrorism in Pakistan last year. The TTP, which was almost wiped out by Operation Zarb-e-Azb and Ridd al-Fasaad, has been revived after the Afghan Taliban took over.

Asia Pacific Forum reported that from 2015 to 2020, thanks to the operations of the Pakistan Army, the attacks on the TTP have continuously decreased.

It was further reported that since 2020, TTP attacks have been gradually increasing and TTP carried out 49 attacks in Pakistan in 2020, 198 in 2021, and 237 in 2022, in which 389 Pakistanis were martyred in 317 attacks of TTP last year.

American weapons left in Afghanistan were also used in the recent terrorist incidents in Pakistan.

All the suicide bombers in Pakistan in the last two years were also Afghans. The TTP has the full support of the Afghan Taliban, no action was taken despite Pakistan’s repeated demands. The recent report of the United Nations has also revealed the increasing instability in the region under the Afghan Taliban.

The UN report said: “The promises made by the Taliban to break the terrorist groups and not become a security threat to other countries have not been fulfilled in the Doha agreement.”

The UN report said: “After the Afghan Taliban took power, the security situation in the region has become very complicated and uncertain.”

According to the US Representative for Peace Program: “TTP is active in Afghanistan to train terrorists and raise funds for them.”
