Between the Pakistani Army and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, a situation resembling war has broken out (TTP). The PML-N and PPP, the two parties that make up the country's ruling alliance, have been threatened with assassination by the TTP, better known as the Pakistan Taliban.

Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, and several national cabinet ministers are among them.

After the Afghan Taliban threatened the Pakistan Army with a replay of the events of 1971 in the event of an attack on Afghanistan, the TTP issued a warning.

Home Minister of Pakistan Rana Sanaullah recently declared that the Pakistani army will invade Afghanistan and strike TTP bases if the Taliban did not get rid of the TTP terrorists.

Although the Taliban leaders aware of the fact that TTP militants are now residing in Afghanistan's shelter has infuriated them, and they have publicly threatened to attack the leaders of both Pakistan's major parties, the PML-N and PPP.

"TTP has not taken any action against political parties for a very long period. However, if these two parties stick to their stance, then action will be done against their leaders. Al Jazeera quoted TTP spokesman Muhammad Khorasani as adding, "People should avoid going near them.

He continued, "(Our) aim is Pakistan's security forces who are operating against the interests of the nation at the behest of the West.

TTP has announced a significant shift in its approach, claiming that the PPP and Nawaz Sharif's PML have declared war to appease the US, I'm against it.

Unfortunately, it is unclear how the current administration came to be enslaved by America, according to the TTP statement.

The TTP has advised the political parties to keep away from it’s conflict with the security forces. The TTP targets the Pakistan Army fatally from bases in Afghanistan.

The Pakistan Taliban has also urged religious organizations to forgo aiding the Pakistani Army in their conflict with the TTP.

The TTP statement continued, "The TTP policy does not include targeting your parties, but we do ask that you refrain from taking part in any activity against us.

After a hiatus of 9 years, the TTP previously committed a suicide strike in Islamabad.

Tehreek-e-Taliban has since issued new directives prohibiting its top commander Noor Wali Mehsud from meeting with its members and other important militants. TTP fears that the Pakistan Army and ISI may target Noor Wali.
