On the night of May 15, unidentified attackers stormed the home of Nazir Afghan, a prominent member of the Pashtoon Tahafuz Movement (PTM) in Dera Ismail Khan district, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The assault, involving heavy weapons, left four people injured, including Nazir Afghan, his cousin, and his uncle.

The attackers used heavy ammunition during the attack, causing significant property damage. They managed to escape the scene.

This incident is the latest in a series of attacks on PTM members, who have been vocal about the Pakistan Army’s human rights abuses in Pashtun regions. PTM activists have frequently been targeted by the Pakistan military to silence dissent.

In the aftermath of the attack, PTM leaders condemned the violence and accused the Pakistan Army of being behind the assault.

The attack on Nazir Afghan’s home underscores the ongoing struggle and violence faced by PTM members as they continue to raise their voices against oppression and demand justice for the Pashtun community.
