One attack was reported from Punjab, whereas three attacks were reported from Islamabad. 

It is important to remember that a delegation of Pakistani ulema was said to have failed a few days ago in their attempt to persuade the TTP to moderate their attitude in negotiations with Pakistani mediators. 

The group, led by Sheikh-ul-Islam Mufti Taqi Usmani, arrived in Kabul on a C-130 on Monday, and they were supposed to stay there until Wednesday in order to try and persuade the TTP leadership to modify their attitude in a last-ditch effort, with little hope of success. 

According to a source in the Ulema group, the TTP leadership carefully listened to them but stood firm on their demands. 

Usmani termed his visit positive but did not mention his interaction with the TTP.

“There is a deadlock. And the prospects of a peace deal are not bright,” a source connected to the peace efforts said.

Pakistan began talks with the TTP in October last year at the request of the Afghan Taliban to seek a political solution to the issue.
