KOHAT: The Darra Adamkhel chapter of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Thursday announced setting of its new “Fidai” wing “Al-Mansooreen” for carrying out suicide attacks all over the country.
Mohammad, the spokesman of the TTP Darra Adamkhel, phoned reporters in Kohat from an undisclosed place to announce that “Al-Mansooreen” had already despatched its commandoes to different parts of Pakistan for undertaking their mission. He said all members of the group were commandoes trained to carry out suicide attacks. He added that Commander Tariq Mansoor himself would head the “Al-Mansooreen” wing.
The Darra Adamkhel chapter of TTP has the reputation of being one of the most dangerous in the organisation. It had kidnapped a number of people, including a Polish engineer from Attock, and killed them. It has also been blamed for kidnappings for ransom.
