New statement from the Teḥrīk-ī-Ṭālibān Pākistān: "Claiming Credit for the Kawhaṭ [Kohat] Mosque Bombing"

NOTE: This translation is via Flashpoint Partners. Also, one should check out Mosharraf Zaidi’s recent article about the tragic bombings in Pakistani mosques for the AfPak Channel.

“A blessed martyrdom operation was carried out by a knight of monotheism, as we consider him, targeting a meeting between the Awakening [movement] of Kohat… and the local commanders of the apostate army…The operation came in response to recent security campaigns and in retaliation for our heroes. Enemy media broadcasts are claiming that this operation took place near the mosque, and this is a big lie and a major fabrication about your brothers.”
