RAWALPINDI – The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) has said Saturday that Islamic State (IS) militants operating from Afghanistan were behind for the recent terrorist attack in Parachinar.

“These militants were pushed out of Pakistan in a successful military operation but they found refuge in areas across the border close to Khyber and Kurrum agencies,” Major General Asif Ghafoor told Express News.

“This concentration and contiguity [of terrorists] near the border allowed them to make Parachinar their soft target,” he added.

Hundreds of protesters in Parachinar on Friday ended their eight-day long sit-in after army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa assured them of better security, according to protest leaders and the military.
