Afghanistan: On Tuesday, a Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) faction based in Pak-Afghan border areas along North Waziristan released a statement claiming a missile attack targeting an Afghan Army camp in Paktika province of Afghanistan.
The statement, attributed to Abu Ameer Khurasani, the spokesperson of TTP faction calling itself ‘Waziristan Khurasan forces’, said four missiles were fired targeting an Afghan Army camp which killed and injured several Afghan soldiers. There has been no statement from Afghan Army yet and ITCT Newsdesk could not immediately verify this claim.
Just a day earlier, on Monday, the same TTP faction had released a statement warning Afghan Army to refrain from carrying out operations against its militants since its fight is with Pakistan Army. The same statement also warned that if Afghan forces don’t pay heed, they should prepare for attacks. The statement also accused Afghan Army of carrying out raids against innocent civilians.
