Militant havens exist in Afghanistan: Pak's ISPR

Islamabad , Fri, 15 Jul 2011 ANI

Islamabad, July 15(ANI): Pakistan's Inter-Services Public Relations Director General, Major General Athar Abbas has said terrorist havens exist in Afghanistan.


He said terrorists from Swat had found Kunar and Nuristan regions in Afghanistan to be safe havens from where they launched cross-border attacks inside Pakistan.


Abbas said militants and their leaders - Fazalullah, Faqir Muhammad, Abdul Wali and Hakimullah - had hideouts in these areas, adding that Pakistan had conveyed its well-founded concerns when NATO was pulling out its troops from these areas.


Commenting on a video showing the killing of 27 troops in a Dir village on June 1, he said the incident was being probed to trace the culprits.


He said about 50 to 60 Tehrik-i-Taliban militants from Swat brutally killed the Pakistani troops in the recent cross- border attack, the Dawn reports.


He said Hafeezullah alias Kotchwan, Muftiuddin alias Shabbar and three other commanders from Toormila led the militants.


General Abbas said that although the Pakistan Army could not directly act in Kunar in Afghanistan, a commission had been set up in Peshawar to decide what possible action could be taken. (ANI)
