An explosion occurred near a police patrol vehicle in Bannu district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, on Wednesday, injuring three pedestrians, including a child. This incident adds to the growing violence in the region.

Earlier, Malik Salahuddin, a local tribal elder, was shot dead by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Tank district. This killing is part of a disturbing trend, as target killings in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have risen significantly.

The Pak Army’s militarization of the region has exacerbated the situation. Initially intended to use it against countries like Afghanistan and India, the increased presence of terrorists has now backfired, with these groups attempting to seize control of the land. Some regions are reportedly already under their occupation.

In response to the escalating violence, the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) recently held a rally rejecting both the Army and the TTP. The Pashtun community is suffering greatly from this conflict, with many becoming casualties in the ongoing strife.
