The Tehrek-e-Taliban Pakistan is a terror organization, that mainly operates in the tribal areas of Pakistan. The group has conducted several terror attacks on the Pakistani security forces which forced the Pakistani government to come to the negotiation table with the TTP for peace talks.
Recently, the Pakistan army has given operational control to the TTP in 6 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan and has ordered the local police force to not take any actions against the TTP fighter’s activity in the area.
As per many Pashtun activists and leaders, this is being done by Pakistan to restart a proxy war by Pakistan in the lure of earning dollars as its economy is currently in shambles.
