Tank (Pakistan), July 14 (ANI): A militant leader in South Waziristan, who is said to be in the good books of the government, has said that the peace agreement in the agency had been "ineffective".

Abdul Haq, a spokesman for Maulvi Nazir said that security forces were attacking the Taliban despite the fact that they had "maintained peace in the agency during the past two years."

"We think the peace deal has lost its validity and we hold the government responsible for this," The Dawn quoted Nazir, as saying.

Nazir was included in the government's list of "good Taliban" after he expelled Uzbek militants from the Ahmadzai Wazir area in 2007.

Security forces and militants clashed near Wana after a security post was attacked on Sunday night. Local people said that the clash continued till Monday noon.

According to official reports, three militants were killed and two others wounded in the clash.

However, militants said that one of their colleagues was missing. A daily-wage worker was killed and another injured, they said. (ANI)
