Pakistani Taliban test missileThe Pakistani Taliban group – Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed to have successfully test-fired an indigenously developed missile named Omar-1.

The group has released a video which shows the assembly of the missile and its successful launch.

TTP spokesman Mohammad Khurasani said “It can be easily assembled and dissembled in accordance to the situation.”

Khurasani further added that the effectiveness of the specially-designed missile would certainly surprise the targeted enemy. “With the grace of God, you’ll soon see our enemies on the run,” he said.

He also added that the engineering unit of the TTP has the capability to develop modern lethal weapons. “We are training our fighters to get maximum results from the use of technology, including suicide vests, suicide vehicles, hand grenades, anti-jammer devices and so on,” Khurasani said.

Claims by TTP to successfully test the indigenously developed missile comes as Pakistani government recently stepped up its offensive against the militants following several large-scale attacks.

The Pakistani military has claimed around 2000 militants in the military offensive launched against them in the troubled North Waziristan and Khyber tribal regions last year.
