Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Claims Drone Strike In November 2022

December 23, 2022

The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP, the Movement of Pakistani Taliban) has released numbers of its attacks against Pakistanis security forces in various regions of Pakistan, especially in the lawless tribal regions along the Pakistan-Afghan border, in November 2022, and of the resulting casualties among Pakistan's security forces. The TTP said that a drone strike in Dera Ismail Khan district, a military operation in Lakki Marwat district, and the order by the TTP "Defense Ministry" to resume attacks against Pakistani security forces, were the significant features of the month.

The TTP's claim of a drone strike came a day after the Pakistani security forces reported that three TTP commanders were killed during an operation in Dera Ismail Khan district. While there was no independent confirmation of the drone strike, there were deadly attacks against the Pakistani security forces in November, during which the TTP announced the end of its months-long ceasefire with Pakistan. Citing an attack in the Lakki Marwat district, the TTP said in a statement that the decision to call off the ceasefire had been taken following continuous offensives by Pakistani security forces in the Lakki Marwat district.
