An army base assault in Pakistan killed 23 soldiers 

In Pakistan, militants stormed a police compound, resulting in the deaths of at least 23 soldiers and injuries to scores more.

A vehicle that was carrying explosives crashed into the building in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, which is located very close to the border with Afghanistan. The assault occurred during the early hours of the morning.

A militant group that is associated with the Pakistani Taliban has asserted that they are responsible for the incident that occurred on Tuesday. The Pakistani army was use the facility as a staging area for its military operations.

According to a statement released by the army, prior to the car smashing into the compound in the Dera Ismail Khan district, a number of militants attempted to enter the compound but were unsuccessful.

After that, the group utilised a truck loaded with explosives to crash into the boundary wall of the property. This was then followed by a suicide bomb attack, which resulted in the collapse of the building, according to the statement.

An explosion may have also occurred in the munitions that was stored inside the property in the Dera Ismail Khan district, according to the concerns that have been raised. A large number of victims were slain while they were asleep, according to an official.

According to the military, five of the attackers were killed. In addition, it was stated that a total of 27 militants had been killed as a result of military operations that took place in the region overnight.

Both Anwaar ul-Haq Kakar, the interim Prime Minister of Pakistan, and Sarfraz Bugti, the caretaker Interior Minister, have expressed their disapproval of the incident.

The Tahreek-e-Jihad Pakistan (TJP), which was founded earlier this year, has stated that its members were responsible for the attack that occurred on Tuesday.

Following the withdrawal of the hard-line Islamist militant group Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) from a ceasefire an entire year ago, there has been an increase in the number of attacks carried out by militant groups in Pakistan, notably in the regions that border Afghanistan.

As a result of the Taliban organization's return to power in neighbouring Afghanistan in 2021, experts believe that the TTP has gained confidence as a result of the Taliban.

According to Islamabad, rebels are operating from regions that are located on the other side of the border. This has been flatly denied by the Taliban in Afghanistan on multiple occasions.

The Pakistan Taliban group, also known as the TTP, has been engaged in a conflict with the Pakistani police and armed forces for a number of years. Despite the fact that it is distinct from the Afghan Taliban, this group adheres to the same fundamentalist philosophy as the latter.

In the northwestern region of Pakistan, the group intends to impose its vision of Sharia law over the regions.

An explosion caused by a bomb that occurred in January at a mosque in the city of Peshawar resulted in the deaths of at least one hundred persons.

The TTP denied that it was responsible for the attack at the time, and instead asserted that it was the responsibility of a commander of a splinter faction.
