Afghan Taliban reject reports of joining hands with TTP


ISLAMABAD: Afghan Taliban on Thursday have denied all the reports suggesting they had joined hands with the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to carry out joint operations, Express Tribune reported.

The clarification came after the TTP sent a supposed email to media, suggesting both the groups had decided to “launch joint operations for the supremacy of Islam and the interest of the Muslims.”

“The leadership of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan have agreed to carry out joint activities under one flag,” the statement added, further claiming the joint military drills of the two groups were underway.

The email, however, was not sent from the militant outfit’s regular email address.

TTP Spokesperson Mohammad Khorasani also did not respond to queries.

Meanwhile, Afghan Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid termed the email as fake.

“We have not struck a deal with any group,” Mujahid told The Express Tribune. “We have no plans to join any group, and all such reports are just rumours.”
