Peshawar: The Taliban on Friday distributed pamphlets describing the Pakistan Army as an “impure force” working at the behest of the CIA and FBI, communicating their response to the military's allegations that they were being backed by India and Israel.

The pamphlets were distributed at mosques after Friday prayers in Miranshah and other areas of the Waziristan tribal region by the local Taliban, said local residents.

The fliers, apparently in response to Pakistan Army's comments that the militants were being backed by India and Israel, described the military as a “napak fouj” (impure force) that worked at the behest of the CIA and FBI.

They said the Army derived its strength from the “terrorists” of private security contractor Blackwater, U.S. drones, CIA, FBI, RAW and Israel's Mossad spy service.

The pamphlets also said the Army was funded by the U.S., NATO and the U.N.

Children standing at main gates of mosques distributed the two-page pamphlets to people, said local residents.

On March 2, Pakistani planes had dropped pamphlets in North Waziristan that claimed India, Israel and Al-Qaida were funding Taliban fighters in the region. — PTI
