Afghan Security Forces Destroy LeT Camp On Afghanistan-Pakistan Border
Abu Bakar, LeT commander from Khyber Agency in Pakistan, was among those who were killed in the operation.
In an operation on June 29, which lasted for two hours from 11.00 p.m. to 1.00 a.m., the Afghan Security Forces (ASF) managed to destroy a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) camp at the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Abu Bakar, LeT commander from Khyber Agency in Pakistan, was among those who were killed in the operation. However, there were casualties on the ASF’s side as well, even as two of its soldiers were slain and five others were injured. The military operation took place close to the Durand Line at Spinzara near the Durbaba area of Nangarhar.
This action comes after the establishment of multiple camps in Wargah and Tordarah by the LeT with the aim of attacking Afghan Forces. Also in the backdrop to this development is the recent Pentagon report, which has said that the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region remains a sanctuary for various groups, including the LeT. Moreover, a United Nations report in June had said that about 6,500 Pakistani foreign terrorist fighters are present in Afghanistan.
