Maps of Pakistan


Heavy fighting between the Pakistani military and Tehrik-i Taliban Pakistan, one of several Pashtun militant groups operating in the country's Pashtun tribal regions (the North West Frontier Province, or NWFP, and Federally-Administered Tribal Areas, or FATA), continues. I have found some good maps of the country and the NWFP and FATA. Hopefully they are of use to you, the readers. Click to enlarge the maps and their text. Several key Pashtun militia leaders have signed ceasefire agreements with the Pakistani military, at least for the time being, and have chosen to remain neutral in the current fighting.

This regional map of Pakistan is useful for situating the last post I wrote for the main Views from the Occident blog on the Iranian Baluchi insurgent-jihadi group Jundullah. See Pakistani Baluchistan in the southwest (peach-colored).
