Peshawar, Feb 6 (ANI): The banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has threatened to intensify attacks on government installations and NATO supplies if military operations in the Swat Valley and Federally Administered Tribal Areas are not stopped.

TTP spokesman Maulvi Omar said that their men would launch attacks on government installations if the military operations against the militants continued.

He claimed that a decision to accelerate attacks on NATO supplies had already been taken and now, the TTP militants would use all means to stop supplies to US and other allied troops deployed in Afghanistan.

The News quoted Omar as saying that the Taliban would not allow supplies to reach US and NATO forces and threatened that militants would blow up containers taking food and other items for foreign forces.

The threat particularly related to the military operation in the strategically located Khyber Agency against banned TTP militants. (ANI)
