Pakistani army bombs Taliban’s suicide camp (U)

Al Jazeera English – CENTRAL/S. ASIA – Pakistan army ‘hits suicide camp’

Pakistani helicopter gunships have destroyed a suspected training camp in the northwest of the country, according to an army statement.

At least six Taliban fighters were killed in the attack near the town of Charbagh in the Swat district of North West Frontier Province, officials said on Saturday.

Several other people were reportedly injured as the camp on a small island on the Swat river was bombarded.

(U): Pakistan: no military campaign against the Taliban:

The Pakistani military has choked off main roads leading out of South Waziristan, and the country’s fighter jets have been pounding targets from the air (an operation Islamabad insists it will continue). But that falls short of the military campaign the U.S. desires. Instead, Pakistani authorities are hoping to exploit divisions within the TTP to prize away some factions, while counting on the CIA’s drones to take out Baitullah’s successors. (See pictures of refugees fleeing the fighting in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.)

U.S. counterterrorism officials worry that a failure to capitalize on the post-Baitullah confusion within the TTP will allow its new leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, to consolidate his position and reorganize the group.

So, Pakistan is interested in Hakimullah reorganizing the group. What an “ally”.
