Peshawar, Nov.4 (ANI): The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan has rejected reports that the Pakistan Army has gained sufficient grounds inside its den in South Waziristan and added that it is prepared for a long war against the security forces.
A self-proclaimed spokesperson of the TTP, Azam Tariq told a foreign news agency that the banned outfit is fully prepared to take on the challenge and that it was drawing the troops into a trap.
"We are prepared for a long war. The areas we are withdrawing from, and the ones the army is claiming to have won, are being vacated by us as part of a strategy. The strategy is to lure the army into a trap, and then fight a long war," The Daily Times quoted Tariq, as saying.
He also rejected the military's claims of killing hundreds of insurgents saying only 11 of his associates have been killed so far in the war. (ANI)
