KARACHI: Intelligence agencies have issued alerts regarding possible terrorist attacks on sensitive installations in Karachi.
According to an intelligence report threats on certain targets in Sindh warrant attention. These targets include CPEC Projects and Chinese nationals, targeted killing of a provincial minister, sabotage attacks at City Courts, Port Qasim, KPT and Kemari Oil Terminal, Mazar-e-Quaid, Expo Center, Rangers vehicles, PNS Karsaz, US Consulate and French Institutes/consulate.
The intelligence report has named NDS of Afghanistan, TTP and other terrorist groups.
Present government and the country are faced with multiple enemies in the country as well as abroad, making it even more difficult for the economy to fully recover and making it difficult for the government to implement reforms.
Last week, military took complete control of Chaman area and sealed the border with Afghanistan because of reports regarding a possible terrorist attack. Afghanistan has long been used as base for operations and terrorist acts in Pakistan.
An analyst said anti-Pakistan forces used donor agencies to trap country in debt trap and the previous governments took loans on uneasy terms just to serve their own interests. Moreover, previous governments accorded abnormal subsidies further straining the country’s resources.
Donor agencies are also pressurizing the government forcing it to take severely unpopular decisions, which may cause chaos and anarchy.
Sources said, foreign funded forces had plans to undertake terrorist activities during the PDM long march, but after the dispute between PDM, there are reports that sensitive installation could be targeted particularly in Karachi to destabilize the country.
Government is not taking undertaking development works, as the government is focused to get rid of the trap of donors. To recall, imports were significantly reduced, while exports are increasing which would ease the pressure on balance of payments.
