While the foreign office remains firm in its stance that Pakistan has been forced to retaliate against Afghan militant attacks, senior officials of the defence ministry and foreign office have claimed that foreign forces in Afghanistan are behind recent cross border attacks in Pakistan. According to the officials, international forces raised a Coalition Special Operation Force (CSOF) to ‘directly and indirectly attack security forces and civilians in the bordering towns of Pakistan’. They further told a private media outlet that Islamabad had filed formal complaints with the USZ and Nato against armed attacks on its security forces in Dir and Chitral. “We are waiting for their reply”, one added while requesting anonymity.

American news website the Long War Journal in a report last week confirmed that the CSOF was fighting against the Taliban in Afganistan’s Nuristan province – an area mostly under the control of the Taliban and other allied fighting groups. Furthermore, noted strategy expert Brig Shaukat Qadir told the media that the CSOF, which, he said, was established by the USZ to sponsor violence in Pakistan, was used by foreign forces to attack Pakistani bordering towns. Meanwhile, a senior official in the foreign affairs ministry has confirmed that several rockets were recently fired as ‘retaliatory action’ on militants by Pakistani security forces in the Afghan province of Kunar.

The official made it clear that the attacks were part of retaliatory action against the militants who in the last two months have been constantly attacking Pakistani security forces and defence installations in Dir and Chitral from Kunar. While the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government has repeatedly blamed USZ and Nato forces in Afghanistan for sponsoring militant attacks on civilian and security forces in Dir and Chitral, the foreign affairs ministry refrains from accusing foreign troops. We are aware that a third party is directly involved in anti-Pakistan violence in our tribal regions”, the source said while requesting anonymity.
