Pakistan world`s most terror-hit nation: Report
Peshawar: Pakistan is the most terror hit-nation in the world after Iraq, a new report has found.
Also considering the severity of the incidents, Pakistan even surpassed the Middle Eastern nation, according to a policy document on internal national security.
The draft of National Internal Security Policy (NISP) 2013-2018 describes the scenario as dangerous, posing an existential threat to the integrity and sovereignty of Pakistan.
According to Dawn News, the draft revealed that from 2001 to 2013, there were 13,721 incidents in Pakistan, which is marginally less than Iraq.
From 2001 to 2005, there were 523 terrorist incidents in Pakistan, but from 2007 to November 2013, the total number of incidents has risen to 13,198, the report said.
According to the report, similarly, the number of suicide bombings between 2001 and 2007 were only 15, but from 2007 to November 2013, suicide attacks jumped to 358 - the highest anywhere in the world.
According to data released by the US National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses for Terrorism (Start), Pakistan led the chart with 1,404 terrorist attacks in 2012, surpassing Iraq (1,271).
Even Afghanistan was behind Pakistan at number three with 1,023 incidents.
