LAHORE: 

A secret report has issued specific warnings of terror attacks that around 16 Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) recruits are allegedly planning to carry out in Rawalpindi and Islamabad over the next two weeks.

The report — circulated by the National Crisis Management Cell (NCMC) at the interior ministry and shared with all provincial home departments, provincial and federal police departments and the federal capital’s commissioner office – said that Adiala Jail is likely to be the main target of the assailants who  intend to free their accomplices in a prison break.

Additionally, the terrorists, all highly trained and reported to be currently residing in Attock, are expected to simultaneously target government installations and attempt kidnapping some high-profile people in the twin cities.

Another intelligence report, circulated amongst law enforcement agencies (LEAs) by NCMC, reveals that another group of terrorists is planning to target Pearl Continental Hotel, Rawalpindi along with Chaklala Airbase and the Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad.

Similarly, specific information received through various intelligence sources suggests that the Anisur Rehman alias Pir Farooq, a commander of TTP, has planned a series of targeted attacks on Pakistan Army posts along the Pak-Afghan border area.

Infiltration

A highly sensitive report reveals that two Afghanistan- based TTP Swat commanders namely Shakar and Kufar Kush along with 50 militants have left Kunar province to mount terror attacks in Dir. The militants are reported to have departed Kunar on August 13 and are headed towards Binashahi in Dir.

Threat to Chinese diplomats, engineers

The NCMC has also circulated another report indicating that Chinese diplomats and engineers, working in Pakistan on several development projects, are a prime target of TTP commander Aziz Mehsud. The report has been circulated to relevant agencies to ensure that adequate safety and security is provided to Chinese officials around the country.

    Despite these warnings our security agencies will not be fully alert and the BEASTS (TTP) will try their level best to hurt PAKISTAN!!!

    The terrorism is like a beast with many heads,if one head is cut,many more sprang up,cutting the heads does not suffice.We need to destroy its body.The job cannot be done by regular police force.we need small specialised units to do this job.well trained,fully equipped and motivated.Recent example is that of sri lanka,once the state decided no body can stop it.

    Dear Mystriousforever,

    TTP’s indiscriminate killings prove that they are only concerned with destabilizing the region, and do not care who comes in their way. They kill women, children and regularly target innocent civilians from all walks of life. They even see our alliance as a threat to their dark and evil agenda. And that’s why they’ve issued threats against the Pakistani government for working with the U.S. Did you hear about the suicide attack on the U.S. consulate in Peshawar yesterday? These terrorists pose as much of a threat to us as they do to you. We have a shared interest in stabilizing the region, and conspiracy theories of this sort don’t do anything to further our common objectives. We’ve made too many sacrifices in the WOT, and it is in our best interest to see these terrorist elements eliminated from the region.

    @US Centcom:
    Haha US Centcom,your naivety really makes me laugh. Without going into too many details, there is no “alliance”, just a subservient traitorist government (which includes all political parties in power and some not in power assisting them) laying out the blueprints for the destabilization of Pakistan and of course mammoth levels of corruption (which is facilitated by the USA and their support of this oh so “democratic” regime which gets flooded with USAID even though they know where it ends up). This same “government” is sheltering all these criminal elements (look up the JUI F and TTP links please), while crying about a foreign conspiracy to belittle that genuine opposition to the US and it’s militarized policies and turn it into nothing more than a cover up of their collaboration with the very same forces apparently destabilizing them.Recommend

    Gave up so easily? Fortunately, for Pakistan there are many who are ready to take these cowards head-on. No matter where you are, every nation has given sacrifices to
