Pamphlets bearing Islamic State’s (IS) seal have been found circulating in areas of Bajaur Agency, sources said on Thursday.

A tribal leader from the region, requesting anonymity, told The Express Tribune. “Pamphlets were discovered in Inayat Kalay and areas of Mamound District of Bajuar Agency.”

The one-page pamphlet claims that the extremist group, which has taken over large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, aims to carry out attacks against polio workers, government functionaries and anyone suspected of ‘spying’.

The contents of the pamphlet carry a sectarian tone. However, the details provided in the pamphlet trace back to neighbouring Afghanistan.

“It’s mostly to cause panic,” said the tribal leader from the area, “the situation is very much under control,” he added.

Bajaur Agency is one of the seven tribal areas, located on the Durand Line. It shares a 52-kilometer border with Kunar province of Afghanistan.

Dozens of tribal elders have been targetted in the area for supporting and establishing the government’s writ in the area. Although the situation remains under control after a massive military operation, target killings of tribal areas and individual threats persists.

The leader of Daesh in Pakistan and Afghanistan, Hafiz Saeed, who originally belonged to Orakzai Agency, was claimed to be killed in a drone strike in Afghanistan – a claim that was denied by the group.
