Pakistan Launches a Military Operation Against TTP

Pakistan has declared an end to a ceasefire with the Pakistani Taliban, saying that its army has launched a crackdown on the group on the Pakistan-Afghanistan borders.

Pakistani military spokesman Babar Iftikhar said on Wednesday that peace talks with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had been suspended, adding that military operations were underway against the network.

“There were some conditions that were non-negotiable from our side so there is no ceasefire right now,” Iftikhar said.

The group carried out several attacks on Pakistani security forces in North Waziristan after the Pakistani government announced that it had achieved a month-long ceasefire with the TTP.

The ceasefire was mediated by the Afghan Taliban.

“The ceasefire [with the TTP] ended on Dec 9. It was a confidence-building measure taken at the request of the current Afghan government.”
