Pressure on AQ’s traditional safe havens has constrained the leadership’s ability to communicate effectively with affiliate groups outside of South Asia ,” the report said.

 

US claimed that terror violence decreased in the year 2015 but Pakistan still suffered from terror attacks that targeted schools.

 

Report claimed that Pakistan army launched operations against terror organizations but Afghan Taliban and Haqqani Network were excluded from it.

The report stated that 11,774 terror attacks occurred in 92 countries in 2015 and Iran is the state who foremost sponsored terrorism .
