TTP say they will not attack Pak army in key region


PESHAWAR: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan said on Saturday they would not attack the Pakistani army in their stronghold of North Waziristan but concentrate attacks on NATO forces in Afghanistan instead.

Thousands of soldiers are stationed in North Waziristan, along the Afghan border. There have been infrequent clashes there between the soldiers and Taliban but a leaflet issued by Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud ordered those to stop. A senior commander confirmed the pamphlet’s veracity.
