Surprising Facts About The ISI

The inter-service intelligence also known as the IsI for short was formed on January 1st
1948 the Agency is made up of military officers and personnel from Pakistan Armed Forces
Pakistan’s Powerful intelligence Agency IsI is among the most active
intelligence Enterprise and covered direct action forces in the world
it is part of the Pakistani Army
But it operates
Generally Beyond the control of the Pakistani government as a whole thanks for joining me here on another episode of Ftd facts
I’m leroy, Kenton and now by far this past week. This was the most requested topic
I mean like everybody wants to know about the ISI Musta near ahmed requested it

Do hate mohammed as well Salman saeed and then we have Khalid al below XI and then we have mini hall salim
And not to mention a bunch of other people so let’s begin with the fact the American crime news declared
Pakistan’s inter-services intelligence can be the world’s best and strongest intelligence agency back in 2011
The ISI headquarters is located in
Islamabad Pakistan and its main focus is to protect Pakistan’s national interests as well as look into matters of political and social
interest to Pakistan and advise the military in the best steps to take now over the years the
Is.i has stopped many terror related attacks. Well before they were even
Executed the Isi is also the largest intelligence agency in the world the IsI has close to 10,000 agents in the field
Worldwide, ironically, it’s one of the least funded agencies in the world
It’s above all laws in its home country

of Pakistan
And it’s often referred to as a state within a state because its policies are made outside of all the other
institutions with the exception of the army now
I want to talk a little bit about operation cyclone if you’re not familiar
It was a code name given to an operation between the American cia and the Pakistani IsI beginning in 1979 and ending in
1989 but that was the u.s.
Plans attack codenamed operation cyclone funded by the Cia and designed to draw the u.s.
sar into an expensive and distracting
29 Vietnam Like North now the objective of this mission was to stop the invasion of the uSSr forces into afghanistan
By providing support to the mujahideen fighters in Afghanistan. That was one of the most expensive Cia
Operations that it has ever undertaken and it cost some Roughly twenty to thirty million dollars u.s.
Every single year, but that was up until 1980 and by the time they reached
1987 it Rose to

630 Million Dollars a year
It’s also reported that no IsI agent has ever been caught or
Turned although this has never been verified the Pakistani government has not yet taken responsibility
For any alleged undercover agent that was caught on foreign soil there are stories of officials like Squadron leader Khalid
Khawaja that were arrested on Pakistani soil for conspiracy against the state
But it seems like the IsI has been very good at
Insulating themselves from any direct involvement in any of the covert operation that they have supposedly
Orchestrated if this is true. That’s very impressive
The IsI have also played very crucial roles in arresting members of al-Qaeda?
As well as the taliban even though most western TV shows and movies

Show the ISI in some kind of negative light where there possibly shown collaborating with terrorists the ice
I actually have worked very close with the cia in bringing down Crucial Target and
officials of the Taliban and the Al qaeda all across the world Si is very professional
Organization in my experience over the years I have a lot of respect for them and I also think it’s only in western mind
And in especially American mind that you can expect an intelligence service of a foreign country to do something counter to its own
Interests

Which country’s interests while there are sources that link ongoing relations between terrorist organizations and the ISI the Pakistani intelligence
Service has played a very crucial role in the capture of very prominent
Agitators like Ramzi, Yousef Abdul Gani Vardar ahmed Omar saeed sheikh and many more
Pakistani Security Forces captured one of Osama Bin Laden’s Chief lieutenants Abu zubaydah along with 19 other al qaeda
operatives in Eastern Pakistani city of I saw that The IsI Arrested September 11 mastermind Khalid sheikh
Mohammed going further the ISI and the Pakistani military have worked effectively with the United states to continuepursuing the remnants of Al qaeda and following 9/11
Pakistan stationed 80,000 troops in the troubled province of Waziristan
Near the Afghan border in order to help break the back of the Al qaeda Network
Now as I mentioned earlier in this episode that the is I have close to 10,000 members
And I say that because the official number hasn’t been confirmed
But what is known about IsI is that they do recruit from?

Pakistan’s military as well as they recruit
Civilian and put them through a lot of rigorous training the training seems to be very secretive because there’s very little information and details about
it but what we do know is that the agents are trained in covert intelligence Gathering and
counterintelligence Again, I mentioned that the headquarters of the ISI is located in Islamabad Pakistan and the complex consists of various low rising
buildings separated by lawns and Fountains Decon Walsh a journalist at the Guardian
He says that the entrance is suitably discreet no signJust a plain clothed officer packing a pistol walsh also said that the complex resembled a well funded private
university and that the buildings are neatly tended moving on now to
Operation Tupac yeah, you heard that correctly but it has nothing to do with the American rapper
Mama Gave birth to another

son Operation Tupac was the name of a 3-part operation that was designed to secretly support the Militant of Kashmir
It was partly started by Pakistan’s president
Zia-Ul-Haq back in 1988 and the name comes from
Tupac Amaru the second which is the 18th century print who led the war of liberation in Peru
Against the Spanish rule the ISI is currently engaged in covertly
Supporting the Kashmiri militants in their fight against the Indian authorities in Kashmir this is because the militants in Kashmir are fighting to be
Independent from India and become part of Pakistan of course for Pakistan the overwhelming obsession is India
Another thing I want to highlight is the Kargil war the Kargil war was back in 1999 the line of control between India and Pakistan
Is probably one of the most inhospitable?
Places in the world there’s an unwritten agreement
That during the winter neither force will occupy the borders post the ice I wrote this agreement in the winter of 1998 to 1999
Which led to the Kargil war in the following summer although?
Pakistan is considered to have lost this war the war is also considered a victory for the IsI as it caught our aw
It’s Indian counterpart completely off guard
India had no clue about the infiltration until they were informed about unknown strangers occupying Indian posts now
We’re coming down close to the end. Let’s talk about Mullah mohammed omar mujahid
She was a top Taliban leader

and it’s an open secret now that he was trained by the IsI a captured Taliban Spokesman by the name of
mohammed Hanif told the Afghan authorities back in January of
2007 that omar was protected by the ISI in the city of quetta in
Pakistan by November of 2009 the Washington times were claiming that omar had been helped by the ISI and that he was now in
Karachi it was only in January of 2010 that amir Sultan Tara who was a retired
official and IsI agent said that omar was ready to break with his al-qaeda allies and make peace with
Afghanistan and finally let’s talk about Nuclear tests although
It’s never been proven for sure but it said that the Indian
R8w as well as is really mossad flew over Pakistan’s nuclear test facilities in order to Gather information
But they were unable to do that because the Ia side plan to keep its nuclear facilities
Secret and even change the location of its test sites multiple times to keep away anybody from seeing anything
they finally settled in the Pakistani city of chuggy and ensure the security of the nuclear equipment by guarding the
Transport plane with six F-16 fighter jet so it’s unclear

What sort of nuclear tests have been going on but that’s just the IsI rolls people don’t necessarily
Know exactly what they’re up to now that concludes this episode about the ISI

INDIA or PAKISTAN – Which Military is Better?

Let’s begin at looking at the military of India India seems to be
modernizing its military and its nuclear capabilities while keeping an
eye on
China another world superpower now India currently ranks fourth in terms
of global military power and
India has been quickly developing new military technologies taking a look
at the specific military
statistics the available manpower for India is
616 million active personnel sits at 1 million three hundred sixty two
Thousand five hundred and they have two million eight hundred and forty
four thousand seven hundred fifty reserve personnel
Now it turns of Pakistan’s military the Pakistani
Armed Forces are ranked 13 in the entire world
But there are the six largest in terms of active
military personnel And the largest among all the Muslim nations and
also to note Pakistan has the world’s sixth largest nuclear

Arsenal in terms of Pakistan’s military breakdown
it looks like this Pakistan has available manpower of 95 million people
their active personnel is at 637 thousand and they
have two hundred eighty two thousand reserve personnel
Now in comparing the army strength of India and
Pakistan India’s Army has four thousand four
hundred and twenty-six combat tanks
They have six thousand seven hundred and four armored fighting vehicles
292 rocker projectors seven thousand four hund
red and fourteen towed artillery as well as
290 self-propelled artillery now for Pakistan’s army
strength They have two thousand nine hundred twenty four combat
tanks two thousand eight hundred and twenty eight Armored fighting
vehicles the rocket projectors in their possession total at one hundred
and thirty-four they also have three

Thousand two hundred seventy eight towed artillery
And they’re self propelled artillery total is at four
hundred see five now moving on from the land up into the air
Let’s compare their air power India has six hundred and
seventy six fighter aircrafts and eight hundred and nine attack aircrafts


their transport aircrafts total at
857 their trainer aircrafts are read 323 and they have a
total of six hundred and sixty six helicopters oh
That’s probably bad luck and also India has sixteen attack
helicopters now when you look at Pakistan’s air power
We see that they have 301 fighter aircrafts 394 attack
aircrafts

261 transport aircrafts, and they have 190 trainer aircrafts
now. They’re total helicopters are at 316 and they have 394
attack helicopters continuing now with the navy of these two
amazing countries
India’s total naval assets it at 295 in their Navy they have three aircraft
carriers fourteen forgets 11 destroyers 15 submarines and
23 Corvettes and their mine warfare vessels total at six in Pakistan’s Navy
They have a hundred and ninety seven total naval assets
They have 17 patrol craft ten. Frigates eight submarines and three mine warfare
vessels now finally
Let’s end off this video in looking at their total military
Defense budget India’s defense budget is an estimated total of 51 billion
dollars u.s.

India’s defence budget is a fourth largest in the world and will be
12.1 percent of its annual spending in the year 2018 to 2019 and even though
India’s defense budget has
Really increased a huge chunk of it is going to be eaten up by its
Personnel costs so this may hold back some of India’s Armed Forces
Plans especially when it comes to requiring new weapons now Pakistan’s defense
budget is a lot smaller at seven billion dollars u.s.
But reported that Pakistan will be increasing its defense budget by around
seven percent
Now the past couple years Pakistan’s economy has grown quite a bit especially
in the year 2016 it grew by

4.7 percent and with this Pakistan’s military can focus on a lot of bigger
priorities like new combat aircraft
Submarines as well as its country’s missile programs
So that’s all I have for this military comparison episode of India and Pakistan
Thank you guys so much for watching and be sure to check out our full video
where we compare India and Pakistan as nations on
a whole and we do a side-by-side comparison.

Surprising Facts About SSG Commandos

Pakistan’s elite special forces unit the special service group or SSG has been listed as the best Special Forces Group ahead of units such as
US Navy SEALs and the British special air service group the list by Business Insider
Australia ranked them as the best of nine of the top elite forces from around the world
There may be no real bearing to that ranking however the SSG still has a lot of things going on that makes them a powerful
And I’ve been seeing quite a bit of comments asking for us to do a video on the SSG so here
It is now a question. I’m throwing out there to you guys before I get into this video is if you were in the military
What would you be a fighter pilot a foot soldier a medic let me know down below in the comment section

So starting off with the facts the SSG or special service group is the main Special?
Operations Task Force of the Pakistan Army while the rest of the Army is well trained in regular combat
situations these SSG commandos are skilled in special skills like
counterintelligence
counterterrorism and covert operations
Its headquarters is at the tar bila cantonment
located in harper district of pakistan the SSG is headed by a
major-general and divided into eight battalions each
Battalion has around 700 men in four companies with each company split into platoons and then into ten man teams
each battalion is commanded by
Lieutenant Colonel

Now terms of recruiting now the earlier thought process of hiring recruits was to spend as little time training them as
Possible they did this because in the earlier years after gaining freedom from the British
Pakistan was not very rich
It had to cut a lot of corners and the SSG was first called the 19th battle edge when it was created in
1956 after combining the 7th and 10th ballots regiment and the
312 garrison company the SS G’s initial training and orientation
regarding tactics was based on the US Special Forces program
Whom they cooperated closely with in the cold war years the SSG initially had six companies and each company had
specialization units specialize in desert mountain Ranger and underwater warfare
Later on Chinese training tactics weapons and equipment were also included
Also the SSG used guerrilla tactics to fight off their enemies and use element of surprise

Whenever and wherever they could
They specialized in counterterrorism
operations where the fighters have to be very still and very
Stealthy their first major deployment came during the indo-pak war of 1965 and by the year
1971 the SSG had grown to three battalions with one permanently stationed in East Pakistan
Now the training program has evolved over the years where it incorporates many new elements of modern warfare


But some things have remained the same you see the SSG officers must have at least two years of prior military experience
And volunteer from other formations for two year assignments with the SSG
noncommissioned officers and enlisted men
Volunteer from other formations to serve permanently in the SSG as well as all trainees must participate in a nine-month
SSG course and cheer at physical training includes doing a 36 mile march in
24 hours so these guys are the real deal, they don’t play around
training with the same people and the same
Instructors can get pretty tedious and also put you in the danger of being obsolete since the rest of the world is
moving in new ways of training so it’s super important that soldiers interact with other countries and
Airways of training this is also a good way to keep the enemy tactics in mind and so the SSG conducts
biannual exercises with the Turkish Special Forces
Which they have designated as the Auto Turk series during the 1980s into the 1990s?
SSG held many similar training exercises with the US Special Forces also, okay?
So the SSG Navy was actually created after the SSG
army after the indo-pakistani war in
1965 the Pakistan Navy under the advice of the US Navy decided to create its own Special Warfare unit
the SSG n in 1966 by
1967 the United States had finally lifted its embargo on Pakistan therefore allowing the United

Hope you guys learned something new and by no means is this all the facts that there is to know about them
We also did a video on the ISI in Pakistan so you can check that video down as well
We’ve also done the military power of Pakistan. We’ve done a lot of videos about Pakistan

How Much Power Does Pakistan Have?

Currently on the global scale Pakistan is ranked 13th in the world in regards to military power now the Pakistani Armed forces comprises of three main
Branches and those are the Pakistan Army the Pakistan navy and the Pakistan Air Force all the branches work together during
operations under the Joint Staff Headquarters, or the JS HQ
But ever since we started our video series on the military powers of the different countries Pakistan has been like the highest
Requested video people like a shout Chatterjee, Yassir Jamil ahmad
Mujahid’s and Hamza Muhammad of all requested for us to do a video on Pakistan military power
Now according to world ometer dot info the population of Pakistan is currently
196 Million Seven Hundred and sixteen thousand
116 people of that population total the available mad power in Pakistan numbers at 95 Million
Pakistan’s Total Military Personnel However totals at 1 million
135,000 that includes active personnel numbering at six hundred and twenty thousand as well as reserve personnel
totaling at five hundred and fifteen thousand people now ever since the partition of
1947 the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has fought Several Wars
including five with India as well as two ongoing conflicts that have been going on over a
Decade now the first conflict was of balochistan liberation
Army,

Instagram user Farhana Stein who lives in Pakistan he sent us in some facts about Pakistan’s military on

Teamwork as well as thanks so much to Md yossel for sending in an email
He told us about this YouTube channel the Pakistan army and we’ll be using some of their clips in this
Episode like it’s a great channel if you want even more information about Pakistan’s military or see some of the cool
Military footage that they have I will link to that down below, okay?
so let’s continue now with Pakistan’s airpower their total aircraft strength numbers at951 they have 301 the fighter aircraft
394 Attack Aircraft
261 Transport Aircraft and their trainer aircraft number in at
190 in terms of Helicopter strength they total at
316 and 52 is the amount of attack helicopters that Pakistan has now
let’s take a look at the land systems that help fuel the power of Pakistan’s Army Combat tanks total at
2924 there are
2828 armored fighting vehicles the number of self-propelled artillery is at 465 towed artillery is at
3278 and Pakistan has in their possession 134 Rocket Projectors now real quick.

I want to introduce the special service group known as the ssg
This is a primary special operations Force in Pakistan’s Army
It’s made up of five thousand six hundred men and all of the people intending to become part of the ssg
Must participate in a nine-month course at the chair at base the ssg course focuses a lot on physical
Conditioning and part of the training includes a 36 mile March that has to be completed in 12 hours
There’s also a series of airborne training as well as airborne jumps that must be completed in order to Earn their wings
From there a two-week advanced training court is done. Where intense hand-to-hand Combat is
Mandatory on top of that there’s a lot of hard physical training that has to be done and because of that only 5% of the recruits that want to join the ssg
Actually join because that’s how tough the training is because the ssg goes through a wide range of grueling training including knifing demolition
survival language skills Martial art Espionage and
Psychoanalytic training in 2015 actually they were listed as the best special Force service in the world
I mean they beat out the us Navy seals as
Well as the British special air service group the navy strength of Pakistan isn’t that great?
They only have 10 frigates 8 submarines 17 patrol craft and 3 mine warfare
Vessels in terms of their military logistics to get people and equipment from one place to another
the labor Force of that is comprised of 65 million
100,000 people their merchant marine strength stands at 11 Pakistan has two major ports and terminals they have 7,000
791 kilometers of Railway coverage
And a total of 151 serviceable airport in terms of Pakistan’s military budget in u.s.
dollars that amount was seven billion dollars

But it jumped up to eight point seven billion dollars this year now considering the fact that Pakistan does possess nuclear weapons
Their military is strong enough to defend their borders against any sort of onslaught
And they’re not going to go down as easily as a lot of people think because Pakistan is often considered a failed state
But you got to keep in mind that they are the sixth largest in the world in terms of active military personnel
And they’re the largest among the other muslim-majority countries as well as reportedly Pakistan is the only Muslim majority
Country that possesses nuclear weapons with allies including the u.s.
A seemingly Saudi Arabia turkey and China yeah China is an ally although that is questionable by many people
Pakistan would definitely have a lot to fall back on when it comes to wartime
However given Pakistan’s location when it come to wartime things don’t necessarily come that easy yep
Afghanistan on one side you have India on the other side to current rival nations
You’re just sandwiched between them because of this their cities
Especially along the border with India stay heavily guarded in case of any surprise attack
Pakistan also is among the top five nations in the world with the most act of Terrorism
Despite Terrorism being at the lowest level within the past decade
so there’s some instability and unrest in that department as well as
Pakistan’s energy
Crisis it’s a very critical issue in Pakistan that needs to be addressed as soon as possible to do this this would require
Pakistan to engage its allies like China to invest a lot in Pakistan’s energy
project with various instabilities Pakistan’s for future progression needs to invest heavily into creating alliances and
strengthening their current one because of the growing population
Keeping up with the demand for energy while at the same time defending its border so heavily proves to be a very challenging
