the best innovative techniques usually are those that create something new from what is obvious and easily available In this case it was the decision by the attackers to use the simple expedient of army uniforms Why Soldiers for some yearsunlike previouslynow carry arms A van travelling on Peshawar Road with an army number-plate with armed soldiers inside would not evoke any suspicion The sentries at the first checkpoint to GHQs main gate would not immediately suspect anything That would reinforce the element of surprise the attackers already enjoy Result: by the time anyone could reactthe attackers had taken out the sentries at the first barrier Small arms fire and hand grenades created the expected melee and even as sentries at the second checkpoint took out four of the attackersit became difficult to figure out the attackers immediately Visually it would have looked like a fire-fight going on among the soldiers The brigadier and the lieutenant colonel who got killed fell to the attackers fire because reports suggest they thought they were instructing their own men to take positions and respond The buildings or complexes that are under attack today were constructed in times when such a threat did not exist No one could have anticipated it either Now they need to be secured and the measures often make commuting a nightmare Thats the paradox of securing oneself in a non-conventional conflict Beefing up security throws up its own multiple problems Worsesocial trust is the first casualty and the most problematic issue Now that the terrorists have used a simple innovation of wearing army uniformsthe response will inevitably throw up the problem of how to determine who is a genuine soldier Can the procurement of uniforms be regulated If sohow One must never lose sight of the fact that innovation is the most dangerous arrow in the insurgent/ terrorists quiver The idea is to try and stay ahead of him That is not always possible but one must try The attack on GHQ was the attack on the armys centre of gravity The army is poised to hit the insurgents/ terrorists COG The leaderAqeel aka Dr Usmana deserter from the Army Medical Corpsis a known terrorist and wanted by the intelligence agencies also in relation to the attack on the Sri Lankan team He belongs to Jaish-e-Muhammad and was close to Ilyas KashmiriAl-Qaedas commander for operations Kashmiri was recently killed in a drone attack The Tehreek-e-Taliban has claimed responsibilitycalling the group that attacked the GHQ the Amjad Farooqi Group Farooqi was the terrorist that masterminded the two 2003 attacks on former General-President Pervez Musharraf Farooqi was originally with Sipah-e Sahaba and later joined JeM Intelligence agencies know that JeM and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi are now subsumed in TTP and linked to Al-Qaeda through that connection Farooqi was killed in a police encounter in Sindh in 2004 The attack was conducted by two teams The plan seemed to be for one team to engage the sentries and give cover to the other to get into the GHQ and take hostages It didnt really work out entirely that way after four terrorists were taken out at the gates The other six managed to get into a side building and did take hostages but failed to reach any high-value target The SSG operation was clean and highly professional and they managed to rescue all the hostages except threekilled four terrorists and managed to capture a wounded Aqeel The degree of difficulty for a neat operation was very high since the attackers were carrying IED beltsexplosivesmostly anti-personnel minesand had managed to take into the building enough ammo to last them a protracted gun battle The SSG had the unenviable task of taking them out while rescuing the hostages Going in with first light they completed the first phase in an hour and had the leader neutralised by 9 am To the extent that the attack created big news;
