Shabqadar is a disputed area; half of which comes under Mohamand Agency and the half is part of Charsadda district.
It has boundry with Mohamand Agency so obviously the security situation had an affect of the area.
Shabqadar has always been a den of criminals so do not tell me that you found something new about it.
Rocket firing near Sher Khan Stadium more known as Army Stadium is not something new as well.
Because the area borders Chamkani area which is again almost a tribal or den of criminals and groups famouse for rocket attacks.
Regarding success of Army indeed it can be debated.
They are not trained to fight mountain insurgencies. They also can not use blind bombardment.
