On Monday, Pakistani security services said that they had killed a prominent leader of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who had been responsible for many assaults on law enforcement and polio teams.
In a mission based on information, Abdul Jabar Shah of the outlawed TTP Gandapur faction was murdered in the neighbouring Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of South Waziristan tribal area. The raid also resulted in the injuries of two terrorists.
Attacks against law enforcement organisations, religious organisations, polio teams, and extortion for the TTP were all carried out by the terrorist leader.
The local law enforcement forces have achieved success twice in a row.
Since the Taliban's invasion of Afghanistan, the illegal TTP has reportedly intensified its attacks and grown stronger.
The militant organisation, which was formed in 2007 as an umbrella organisation for a number of militant groups, broke off a cease-fire with the federal government and instructed its members to carry out terrorist strikes around the nation.
