No attacks into Afghanistan after June 10: Pak Taliban
KABUL (Pajhwok): A major Taliban group in the North Waziristan has formally revoked the peace agreement with the Pakistani government and announced to stop all its operations in Afghanistan after June 10.
Led by Hafiz Gul Bahadar, the group through a pamphlet distributed in the tribal region said it was now preparing to fight against a planned security forces operation, asking local residents to leave the area and move to safety until June 10.
The pamphlet distributed on Friday read that the government had broken the peace accord with the North Waziristan Taliban by launching air strikes with a full-fledged operation being planned for the tribal region.
The group also warned locals to refrain from seeking refuge in government- camps and instead, it directed them to move to areas close to the Afghan border whereby they could easily travel to Afghanistan.
Locals were asked to sever all ties with the government and military officials by June 10 and warned action against those not heeding the warnings.
The group said it would not send any fighters across the border to Afghanistan and would focus on defending North Waziristan, calling upon the tribesmen to either leave the area or join hands with the militants.
