    Zarb-e-Azb, a Ray of hope in the pitch-dark night of terrorism

    Pakistani political elite, has finally joined the Pakistan Army on the same hymn sheet against terrorist militants. It is very heartening for all patriotic Pakistanis that Pak army has launched a long-awaited major military offensive against the foreign and local militants in tribal areas. There had been a limited recalibration of Pakistani government on National security policy towards armed terrorist groups. The government of Pakistan initially focused on negotiating with the Taliban before using force, to bring them under the state’s control. However such measures baffled the nation. As, I mentioned in one of my previous column of 17th April 2014 that there was a very little prospect of a negotiated settlement.

    The TTP under a new leadership of Mullah Fazlullah has a record of entering into deals with the government to buy time to amalgamate his own power. This is what he did in Swat when he entered into two arrangements with the government but reneged once he thought that he was in a gainful position to levy his will on the public. Swat agreement was aimed at ending violence but saw an increase instead as the Taliban took control of the Swat valley. The 2004 deal with militant leader Naik Mohammad resulting in the Shakai agreement was followed by an almost immediate withdrawal on his commitments. The agreement bolstered his legitimacy amongst the tribes and turned him into a veritable war lord. The 2005 Sararogha agreement with Baitullah Mehsud exacerbated the confrontations it aimed to reduce. It helped install Mehsud as the chief of the Pakistani Taliban. The appropriate move of launching operation Zarab-i- Azab commendably finishes the government's policy of negotiating peace with Pakistani Taliban militants instead of using force to end the years’ long terrorism ad militancy.

    Gen. Asim Saleem Bajwa in the press release of the operation launch has rightly mentioned that "Using North Waziristan as a base, the terrorists had waged a war against the state of Pakistan’’. The Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan covers an area of 27, 270 sq. kilometres. This tremendously small area, however, is home to over roughly 45,000 militants and forty militant groups, amongst them are the Afghan Taliban, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, al- Qaeda, Jaish-e-Mohammed, and the Pakistani Taliban. There has been mounting National and International frustration since 2010 that the army’s offensive in South Waziristan was not extended to North Waziristan, to which many armed militants absconded.

    The Pakistani Taliban insurgent movement is not simply a tribal or an Islamist insurrection. Individual Pakistani Taliban militants have been involved in transnational terrorism through their group’s alliance with al-Qaeda. Some of them are driven by criminality, while others are disciplined and are fighting to evict the Pakistani authorities from these areas to impose the illegitimacy of its self-declared state of the Islamic Emirate of tribal areas.

    Bombings, including suicide strikes, appear to be the group’s preferred modus operandi, these being targeted especially at the Pakistani security forces and symbols of the state. Illegal FM radio channels and the circulation of DVD, CDs and pro-TTP newspapers and websites serve to promote the organization’s propaganda campaign. Child recruitment appears common; certain Pakistani Taliban commanders bear a specific responsibility for training suicide bombers, and a significant amount of propaganda material is directed at young people. Innumerable financial sources swell TTP coffers, including criminal activity, ‘protection money’ and donations from sympathisers inside and outside of Pakistan.

    For more than 10 years, the Pakistani military, with limited resources has fought a very difficult war of attrition against an elusive enemy. According to the statistics of South Asian Terrorism portal from 2003 to April 2014 Pakistan has lost 18775 Civilians and 5681 security forces personals in terrorist violence. It has also resulted in to destruction of infrastructure, internal migration of millions of people from parts of north western Pakistan, erosions of investment climate, nose diving of production and growing unemployment and above all brought economic activity to a virtual standstill in many part of the country. Pakistan had never witnessed such devastating social and economic upheaval in its industry, even after dismemberment of the country by direct war.

    Kidnapping incidents of government officials and security forces by terrorists have become a frequent feature of terrorism in Pakistan. Terrorist organizations ambush convoys of government officials, including the foreign dignitaries and members of the police and armed forces, when they are traveling in small groups and with less security. After the abduction, the terrorists take the hostages to underground places and present a list of demands to the government.

    Like Iraq and Afghanistan, suicide terrorism has become the most lethal and devastating method of terrorism in Pakistan. In the last few years, an ever-increasing supply of mentally indoctrinated individuals, with high motivation for heavenly life after death, has taken hundreds of lives in Pakistan. The ineffectiveness of a counter strategy to the threat of suicide terrorism has become a grave concern for the Pakistani Nation. Suicide terrorists select high profile targets or attack security forces with the intent to create real panic among the masses after each attack. Suicide attacks cause multiple deaths and grave damage to property. More importantly, people react to suicide incidents with exceptional horror, more so than to conventional terrorist attacks.

    Terrorists, especially in tribal areas near the Pak-Afghan border, skill-fully plan and use the local public as human shields. In some cases, where the writ of the state is weak and the terrorists have influence, they force or threaten the locals to stay around them and provide them support against security forces. They ensure that no local person gives any information about the terrorists to government agencies, they ruthlessly kill suspects in public. This warns others not to attempt such ventures in the future. This phenomenon of human shield leads to collateral damage and causes death or injuries to innocent people.

    The Pakistan Army has been involved in safeguarding security and stability through tackling terrorism and militancy in FATA. Since 2001, it has successfully conducted 5 major counter-terrorism operations. During winter of 2001, Pakistan’s armed forces in collaboration with U.S. participated in operation ‘enduring freedom’ in Khyber and Kurram tribal agencies. Our armed forces played a pivotal role in capturing many prominent Al Qaeda leaders and foreigners, including Abu Zubaydah, Ramzi bin al-Shibh and Sharib Ahmad. Operation Al Mizan involved numerous smaller operations. The army conducted key search operations across a 36-km area west of Wana that was hub of terrorists, including Naik Muhammad Wazir, Noor-ul-Islam, Haji Muhammad Shareef, Maulavi Abbas and Maulavi Abdul Aziz, who were suspected of protecting foreign fighters.

    Frontier Corps launched Operation Sher Dil in September 2008. By early December, over 1,000 militants and 63 security personnel had been killed. Pakistani forces found tunnel complexes used for hiding people and storing material such as armaments, ammo, radio frequency lists, guerrilla-warfare manuals, propaganda and bomb-making instructions. Operation Rah-e-Haq was conducted in two phases during November 2007 and from summer till winter 2008 in Swat. During operation 36 security personals and nine members of the public embraced martyrdom and 615 terrorist got killed.

    In summer, 2009, Pakistan army launched operation Rah-i-Rast to abolish the key leaders of Pakistani Taliban and other militant groups in Swat. Military regained the control of these areas and destroyed concrete bunkers while confiscating weapons, ammo and explosives hidden in caves.

    Pakistan Army and Air Force jointly conducted a targeted operation Rah-i-Nijat in South Waziristan during summer 2009. By the end of year 2009, Pak army controlled most of Ladha, Makin, and Sararogha areas. Army also disrupted TTP command and control system in the key Mehsud areas of South Waziristan.

    The Pakistani military’s large-scale domestic air and ground operation Zarb-e-Azb is unparalleled in the country’s history and, for many observers, reflect a new recognition among Pakistan’s civilian and military leaders, alike, that Taliban militants had become a ominous threat to Pakistan’s security and stability. The operation will enable the country to generate a matching response to the despicable designs of the terrorist. It is indeed a ray of hope in the pitch-dark night of terrorism.

    At least 25 suspected terrorists were killed in airstrikes and by ground troops of Pakistan’s Armed Forces in North Waziristan Agency (NWA) as the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) fleeing the cordoned area crossed 430,000 on Monday.

    “Eight terrorist hideouts around Mir Ali, NWA were destroyed by jet aircrafts early morning,” said a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).

    “15 terrorists were killed in the strikes. Tunnels were spotted in the targeted areas and 10 terrorists were killed while fleeing from the cordoned off area in Spinwam and Mir Ali. Two soldiers also embraced martyrdom in exchange of fire,” the statement added.

    “While the operation Zarb-e-Azb progresses as per plan, terrorists inside cordoned area are making desperate attempts to flee from the area. Several attempts by terrorists to flee from the cordoned off area have been foiled,” it said.

    Moreover, aerial surveillance, vigorous patrolling and cordon around the area housing terrorists continue as the military operation Zarb-e-Azb progresses as per plan, the statement added.

    AS IDPs EVACUATE:

    On IDPs’ situation, the Pakistan Army said that curfew was relaxed from 6am to 4pm Monday to facilitate evacuation of leftover locals.

    “As many as 414,429 IDPs have been registered so far at Saidgai Checkpost. It is believed that remaining people will leave the area today.”

    For better management of IDPs at Bannu, Army Engineers Division has been tasked to assist the civil administration at Bannu and Dera Ismael Khan. Troops of the Engineers Division have already reached Bannu.

    The Army said that four relief goods delivery points have been established by its Engineers Division at Bannu, where food items, medical care and cash amount, as announced by the federal government, will be distributed by the concerned civil agency among IDPs of NWA.

    Fatwa declares Zarb-i-Azb a jihad

    Thousands flee North Waziristan region on last day of evacuation



    PESHAWAR/BANNU: Residents of North Waziristan have until the end of Monday to leave the remote mountainous North Waziristan tribal region ahead of a widely anticipated major ground offensive by the army against Islamist militants.

    At least 430,000 people have fled the region into nearby areas of Pakistan as well as neighbouring Afghanistan, the biggest movement of refugees in Pakistan in years.

    “Today is the last day for the people to leave the tribal region,” a military official told Reuters by telephone from the North Waziristan capital of Miramshah. “The curfew will be then imposed and preparations made for the ground offensive.”

    Many of those who stayed behind, their number is unknown, said they could not afford to pay for cars to take them to safer places such as Bannu, a dusty town on the edge of the region, where most refugees have settled.

    “Those who could afford it have left the tribal region, but some are still there and could die in the fighting as they don't have any means to come out of Waziristan,” Zakirullah Khan said after arriving in Bannu.

    Also read: Imran Khan visits Bannu

    He said prices charged by drivers had soared to levels well beyond the budgets of those wanting to leave. Other residents complained the government was not doing enough to help them. Many opted to stay with relatives rather than official camps.

    Refugees said settlements in North Waziristan tribal region had been reduced to ghost towns.

    “In my entire life I have never seen Waziristan so deserted and scary,” said Shad Mir Wazir, a refugee, adding that he saw a number of Taliban militants still hiding in some villages.

    WFP distributes aid
    The World Food Programme on Monday began distributing aid for hundreds of thousands of people who have fled a military operation in North Waziristan tribal region, as refugees clashed with authorities over delays.

    Pakistan began Zarb-i-Azb, a long-awaited military offensive aimed at eliminating Taliban militants from their stronghold in the North Waziristan tribal district, last week, following a brazen attack on the country's busiest airport in Karachi.

    The operation, involving air strikes, tanks and heavy artillery has forced the exodus of more than 400,000 people, mainly to the nearby town of Bannu just outside the tribal zone.

    It has left nearly 280 militants dead, according to the army, but the figure cannot be independently verified.

    Safiullah Khan, an official with a local non-government organisation partnered with the WFP, said a food distribution point in Bannu had begun providing rations including wheat flour, cooking oil, lentils and high energy biscuits.

    “We have made all necessary arrangements, which are enough to cater to ration needs of 15,000 families on daily basis,” he said.



    Around 2,000 people had gathered at a local football ground where the food centre was set up to wait for the first consignment of trucks.

    They later scuffled with police when distribution was delayed by several hours, who fired in the air to disperse the protestors.

    Noor Bat Khan, a 60-year-old resident from Esori village in North Waziristan criticised authorities for taking so long to act and not creating enough centres.

    “The authorities should set up more distribution points as it will be difficult for the displaced persons to wait for their turn in scorching heat,“ he said.

    According to a government spokesman, a total of 404,819 people have so far left North Waziristan after the start of the military offensive.

    Meanwhile influential warlord Hafiz Gul Bahadur held talks with a tribal jirga, or council, in North Waziristan where he repeated a threat to join forces with the Taliban if the offensive continued.

    “Bahadur said he would not launch any retaliatory action against military troops operating in the region until the middle of August provided the government agrees to stop the offensive enabling the refugees to return to their homes,” a spokesman for the jirga, Malik Fida told AFP.

    Bahadur fought against the Soviets during their occupation of Afghanistan and later against US forces after 2001, but signed a peace deal with the Pakistani military in 2006.

    The importance of North waziristan operation

    The writer is a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the Pakistan Army and is currently pursuing PhD in civil-military relations from Karachi University

    Finally the much-awaited military operation against militants in the troubled North Waziristan Agency of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) has been launched. There was never any doubt that a ‘military operation’ was the only viable option and the only genuine solution available with the civilian government to root out terrorism. Why was then the operation being pended and delayed?

    The political reason is too obvious as all politicians want to avoid any ‘scandalous activity’ that may cost them the votes that win them elections and keep them in power. It’s the military reason that has counted the most here and has really stood out. All military academies in the world teach ‘military commanders resolve’ as an outstanding military principle to achieve military successes. No doubt General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and General Kayani were top line generals of our army but they belonged to the same league. Together sharing the military leadership of Pakistan Army for 14 long years, they represented a military mindset that shared and believed in the ‘sacred doctrine of strategic depth’ that possibly was the reason that tied their hands behind their backs as the army continued fighting a ‘stalemated war’ that was being characterised more by ‘firefighting acts’ than any military actions of substance.

    General Raheel Sharif, from the outset, vouched to respond to every terrorist act with a military action. Air strikes on the militant hideouts became a norm and it was generally being perceived that the new military commander was pushing his civilian bosses to agree to the initiation of a ‘military operation’ as the most-favoured option. All military commanders know that ‘the success of half of any military operation is reaching there, the other half is its execution’. If anything, the beginning of the military operation suggests that the army may also have reached a conclusion. It will no more guard and protect the ‘ideological frontier’ which it created and sustained and of which the Taliban were an essential part. A frontier, within which the Taliban once trained, nourished, housed and were even protected. If there ever is going to be a ‘responsible end’ to this war, it will come only if the army has finally decided that it no more recognises and accepts the notion of strategic depth and will meet all ‘ideological crusaders’ with a singular treatment.

    Addressing the National Assembly, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has announced that the “the Zarb-e-Azb operation will not end till all terrorists are eliminated”. The people of Pakistan must own and rally around this mission statement given by the prime minister. Winning this war will not be easy. Nobody is even clear at this stage what really the definition of winning this war is. Surely it can’t only be the successful culmination of tactical operations in the battlefield zone. It has to be something more strategic. Something wider in scope — a single unanimous will of an entire nation, which should, in fact, act as a much ‘wider team’ to execute the prime minister’s given mission statement. In this dreadful irregular war that we fight across the length and breadth of the country, the complete nation will have to stand together to achieve this difficult but not impossible victory.

    The real worry that the security establishment faces now is, how to counter the blowback and the retaliatory strikes by the Taliban in the country’s heartland? The Taliban spokesperson has already threatened and reminded the government that ‘our response will be tough’.

    The war engulfs the entire country. Pakistan, today, is a war zone and the Taliban will fight this war where it will hurt the government and the army the most. Not in the mountains, gorges and deep valleys of North Waziristan. There these local and foreign militants will lie low or withdraw through the porous border into the neighbouring provinces in Afghanistan.

    It’s their vanguards who will retaliate — the likes of the group of terrorists that recentlyattacked the Karachi airport. These small groups of terrorists harbouring in the urban centres in the country are the real part of the Taliban’s response force. They have the capacity and the capability to create the nightmare that all custodians of safety and security of this country dread and fear. It is against these likely ‘violent and destructive’ militant actions in the urban centres by the death squads of the Taliban, that Pakistan is least prepared. The soft underbelly of Pakistan in the war on terror is its weak ‘second tier security apparatus’.

    The example of Karachi — the port city and hub of Pakistan’s business and commercial activity — clearly illustrates why Pakistan’s mega cities may be the choice targets of Taliban’s ‘retaliatory strikes’. A city of over 25 million people, Karachi boosts a police force of only 35,000 men. Most of these men were recruited by the ruling parties on mutually agreed and shared quotas without meeting the required standards of recruitment. Highly unprofessional and corrupt, this is hardly a force that can be relied to put up a defense against the stealth techniques and sneaky and covert operations of the Taliban insurgents. As if their unprofessionalism was not enough — the police force that is highly politicised is mostly involved in serving and protecting the VIPs. According to a rough estimate, over 18,000 men are deployed to protect and serve only the city elite. No wonder the chief minister of Sindh deputed and tasked the military to guard the sensitive installations in the city.

    Except the odd IED attacks or small hit-and-run operations, I don’t see any likelihood of the Taliban raising their head in the operational area to meet the challenge that the Pakistan Army has thrown at them. Not under the lurking eyes of the ‘reconnaissance drones’ that the Pakistan Army now flies in the battlefield zone or the cobra helicopters that hover in the skies or even the fighter jets that will now target them day in and day out. The boots on ground will also be deeply relieved and now highly motivated as for them ‘the push has finally come to shove’. The army has enough troops on ground to clear and hold the nerve centres and vital tactical grounds in the operational area. Even if the Afghan Army does not shield its border and prevent the retreating ‘terrorists’ from infiltrating, the Pakistan Army will continue to flush out these terrorists towards the Afghan border.

    The procrastination in the decision to launch a military operation by Pakistan’s military and civil elite gave Taliban tremendous military leverage. This all is about to change. The commencement of the military operation is no guarantor of ultimate success against the Taliban, but it surely is the most vital tool now being used by the state from its ‘options tool-kit’ to tip the balance in favour of the state.

    Re: Operation Zarb-e-Azb updates

    I seem to be a bit confused. Apparently 50,000 troops are being used and their seems to be a delay in finishing the mission off. I believe it could be over within a week.

    Two soldiers killed in North Waziristan suicide attack: officials


    BANNU:
    A suicide bomber in a car killed at least two troops and a civilian on Tuesday in North Waziristan.

    The attacker detonated his bomb in Spinwam village of the tribal district when he was intercepted on the approach to a checkpoint, officials said.

    Pakistan Army have used jet fighters, tanks and artillery in the offensive, which began over a week ago, killing around 300 people they have described as militants, though the number and identity of the victims are impossible to verify.

    “At least two soldiers and a civilian have embraced martyrdom,” a security official told AFP.

    A military statement said that troops stopped the car suicide bomber 100 metres away from a checkpost near a hospital and the action averted major casualties.

    The Ansarul Mujahideen militant group claimed responsibility, with spokesman Abu Baseer saying it was the start of a counter-offensive against the armed forces by the Taliban.

    “It is beginning of our offensive and we will launch attacks against government and local tribesmen if they form anti-Taliban force,” Baseer told AFP via telephone from an unknown location.

    Meanwhile, jets and helicopter gunships targeted militant hideouts at several places in North Waziristan, officials said.

    The offensive has seen North Waziristan hit by more than a week of shelling and air raids, and more than 470,000 people have fled ahead of an impending ground assault, with many going to the nearby town of Bannu.
