Since the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) broke its truce with the government in November, there has been a wave of terrorism in Pakistan, mostly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.
A study says that January 2023 was the deadliest month since 2018. At least 44 militant attacks across the country killed 134 people and hurt 254, which is a 139% increase from 2018.
The violence happened just a few days after the military announced a new operation against militants. In recent months, there has been a rise in attacks, including a bombing at a mosque in Peshawar in February that killed more than 100 people.
