Takfiri Groups Attack Shia Muslims In Parachinar
On October 31, an attack by armed Takfiri groups on vehicles belonging to Shia passengers has left at least six civilian martyrs, three wounded and two missing on the road to the village of Ghoz Gari in the western outskirts of Parachinar, located in the Kurram District of the Kohat Division of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan.
After the deadly raid, Takfiri militants attacked the Bushahra region and its surrounding villages; then, the Takfiris engaged in exchange of fire with armed Shia fighters over the past few days.
According to local sources, the latest attack was carried out by the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (Army of Jhangvi).
The exact reason for their attacks has not yet been determined, and Pakistani media have cited “religious differences” as the main reason for these attacks.
One of the martyrs of Parachinar was Qasem Abbas Turi, who was a member of the Zainabiyoun Brigade. He, along with several members of the armed forces from the village of Ghoz Gari, were martyred in clashes with Takfiri militants.
It should be mentioned that Takfiri militant groups in the Kurram District also attacked Shia-populated areas of Parachinar on July 9, 2023, which resulted in five days of armed clashes between the two warring sides and several non-combatant Shia Muslims were martyred in this region.
