Militants decry attacks against Pakistani military

Taliban, al Qaeda militants have long used North Waziristan tribal area as a base to stage attacks against forces in Afghanistan.

Peshawar: Pakistan`s leading militants have called on fighters not to attack the Pakistani military in their most important sanctuary along the Afghan border.

Taliban and al Qaeda militants have long used the North Waziristan tribal area as a base to stage attacks against US-led forces in neighbouring Afghanistan.

Pakistan has refused US demands to launch an offensive in North Waziristan. American officials have accused the Pakistani government of supporting some militants in the area.

A militant leadership council distributed a pamphlet on Saturday saying fighters should honour an agreement not to attack Pakistani security forces in North Waziristan.
The council includes leaders of the Pakistani Taliban and the feared Haqqani network.
