Mohmand Agency: “Mohmand Agency Taliban” claimed to have killed 23 FC soldiers they had kidnapped from Shongari checkpost here in 2010.

The TTP-Mohmand Agency chief Umar Khalid Khurasani has said the killings have been carried out as a revenge of the mysterious killings of their friends. Khurasani said in a statement composed in Urdu and posted on social media “Government on one side has started negotiation but on the other side our friends are being killed taking out them of different jails.”

Khurasani while giving details of their killed ‘friends’ said, “We had asked government several times to stop killing our friends. But government used the ‘negotiation’ as an opportunity to kill us.” Khurasani claimed the killings of the FC soldiers, “So we put to death twenty-three FC soldiers that were captured from Shonghari Post in Mohmand Agency, in June 2010”.

TTP-Mohmand Agency chief has said, “To release the Taliban prisoners is the basic demand of TTP and a major condition of the ‘negotiations’.” He warned government to stop killing their friends, “We know how to avenge of their friends. If government doesn’t stop, our reaction will be vigorous more in future.”
