Taliban, Pakistan Reach Settlement on TTP Members’ Relocation to Northern Afghanistan

The Interim Government has agreed with Pakistan to relocate Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) members to Northern Afghanistan.

The Taliban decide to reassure Islamabad that TTP is not engaging in operations against the Pakistani government. The TTP militants now stationed alongside the Durand will redeploy to Northern Afghanistan.

According to Zabihullah Mujahid, The Taliban spokesperson, the Refugees currently reside in Khost, Kunar and nearby Afghanistan border regions. 

He added that the Islamic Emirate planned to take refugees from the other side of the Durand Line in the province of Khost and Kunar to far provinces so that they would be away from the Durand Line. 

This decision has been taken to assure Pakistan that they will not involve in the attack.

According to the report, the Taliban will provide TTP members with land in northern Afghanistan, and Pakistan will finance the purchase of agricultural tools and resettlement supplies.

These Pakistani residents have been living in Afghanistan as refugees and have established camps in border regions in the south and east of the country due to the TTP membership and antagonism to the government of Pakistan.

Several sources claimed that the Taliban and Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) have been discussing the resettlement of the TTP members. 

According to the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), these refugees came to Afghanistan after the military operation of the Pakistani military in 2014. 

Another report by the NRC indicated that these refugees estimated 72,000, most of whom lived in Gulan Refugee Camp close to the Afghanistan-Pakistan border in Khost.

Since the Taliban retook control of Kabul on August 2021, there has been a remarkable increase in cross-border insurgent strikes in Pakistan. Most of those victims of the violence were Pakistani security personnel, notably in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the Waziristan region close to the Afghan border.

The outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which is thought to be operating out of Afghanistan, has taken responsibility for much of the deadly violence.

Meanwhile, Afghan experts believe it may create more opposition to the current plan of the Taliban as this is a political agenda rather than a humanitarian one.
