After India's Balakot strike, Pakistani terrorists being trained in Afghanistan

Pakistan-based terror organizations, Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), have reportedly shifted their cadres to Afghanistan following the Indian Air Force's airstrikes on terror camps in Pakistan's Balakot.

After receiving intelligence inputs that JeM and LeT cadres have moved to Afghanistan's Kunar, Nangarhar, Nuristan, and Kandahar provinces, the Indian diplomatic missions and offices in Kabul have been put on a high alert.

Here's more.

Pakistan-based JeM and LeT have joined hands with the Afghan Taliban and the country's Haqqani Network, across the Durand Line separating Pakistan and Afghanistan, for training their cadres in subversive activity, reported Hindustan Times citing some documents.

Meanwhile, Indian security agencies believe the shifting of these terrorist cadres to across the border was done to avoid Pakistan's blacklisting by Financial Action Task Force (FATF).

People in Indian counter-terror agencies familiar with the matter said that Indian diplomatic establishments in Afghanistan, including the embassy, were under threat from heavily-armed Haji Abdul Safi-led JeM terrorists.
