Peshwar, Dec.15 (ANI): Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Maulvi Omar on Sunday claimed responsibility for the recent attacks on NATO supplies.
Talking over telephone with reporters, the Daily Times quoted Omar as saying that the arson attacks on NATO supplies in Peshawar and Khyber Agency were a reaction to the United States drone attacks in the Tribal Areas.
He warned of more such attacks if the US troops did not halt their attacks on the Tribal Areas.
He said the TTP would cut the supply routes to NATO and international forces stationed in Afghanistan.
NATO has started looking for alternatives to the main supply route through Pakistan after the Taliban torched some 300 trucks laden with supplies, including military vehicles, in five attacks in the last week. (ANI)
