Pakistani Taliban claim successful test-fire of missile

Islamabad: As Pakistan was Tuesday celebrating Chinese investments worth $46 billion in the country, the militant Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) reported it has successfully test-fired its first indigenously developed missile.

The TTP issued a statement and posted a video showing the launch of the missile, named "Omar 1". The video, released Monday, showed different parts of the missile being assembled before its launch, the online Pakistan Defence reported on Tuesday.

The TTP said that a special feature of "Omar 1" was its design.

"It can be easily assembled and dissembled in accordance to the situation," said Muhammad Khurassani, the TTP spokesperson.

Khurassani said 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 added.

The spokesperson said that 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."

Pakistan claims to have killed around 2,000 militants in Zarb-e-Azb operation - a military offensive against terrorists - launched in the troubled North Waziristan and Khyber tribal regions last year. The operations, which still continue, had caused exodus of more than 1.5 million people.
