The Lashkar had set their base in Nangarhar’s Spinjra region in Afghanistan. Moreover, the Afghan army had obtained information of Lashkar and Al Qaeda setting up their base at the Durand Line along the Afghan-Pakistan border. Against this background, on Monday night, the Afghan Armed Force declared to have killed a prominent Lashkar commander in their action. Apart from this, the armed force also claimed that terrorists were slain in numbers in this action. But in order to not let the Afghan army get their hands on the dead bodies, the Lashkar militants carried the bodies of the dead and injured, and fled to Pakistan.

Since the past month, this is known to be the second action carried out by the Afghan army on the terrorist bases near the Pakistan border. Earlier, the Afghan Armed Force had attacked the Lashkar base in Paktia province. Besides, the United States and the United Nations have already expressed concerns about the rising number of terrorist bases near the Pak-border region. Moreover, the UN has claimed in its report that there are about 6,500 terrorists in the region near the Afghan border. As per the UN report, 1,000 of these terrorists belong to the Pakistani terrorist outfits – Lashkar-E-Taiba, Jaish-E-Mohammad and Taliban’s Hakkani Network. Furthermore, the UN report also warned that the ties of Lashkar and Jaish with Taliban is a matter of grave concern.
