On Monday, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for two recent attacks on Nato supply convoys in Pakistan and threatened to carry out more.
Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Azam Tariq said, “We accept responsibility for the attacks on the Nato supply trucks and tankers,”
“I am talking about attacks both in Sindh and in Islamabad,” he said in a telephone call from an undisclosed location.
“We will carry out more such attacks in future. We will not allow the use of Pakistani soil as a supply route for Nato troops based in Afghanistan,” he said.
“This is also to avenge drone attacks,” he added
In a midnight attack, more than 20 tankers carrying fuel for US and allied troops in Afghanistan caught fire after the gunmen opened fire at the tankers.
At least three people were killed and seven others injured but the gunmen escaped.
