Despite a 29% decline in terrorist attacks in Pakistan last year, the outlawed TTP, its splinters groups and ISIS’s Khurasan chapter remained the most potent threat to the country’s security, said a report by Pakistan Institute for Peace and Studies (PIPS).

At least 595 people were killed in the acts of terrorism around the country in 2018, the report said, adding that about 38% were killed in five lethal attacks, which were claimed by ISIS in Balochistan Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

According to the report, 354 people were killed in Balochistan, which is 59% of the total toll.

Law enforcement agencies killed at least 120 militants in 2018.
