Peshawar: Pamphlets dropped by Pakistani
planes in the lawless North Waziristan region on Tuesday claimed
that India, Israel and Al Qaida are funding Taliban fighters
in the tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

The two-page pamphlets in Urdu listed seven "sources
of strength" of the Taliban in Pakistan.
The first of these reasons was "huge funding" for the
militants by India, Israel and Al Qaida, the pamphlets
claimed.

Indian consulates in Afghanistan too were backing the
Taliban, the pamphlets alleged.

The militants were making large purchases of weapons
and explosives with funds obtained from India and Israel, they
further alleged.

Terrorists linked with Al Qaida and the RAW and Mossad
intelligence agencies too were backing the Taliban, the
pamphlets claimed.
Smugglers of `charas` and opium and unemployed tribal
youth were list as another alleged source of strength for the
militants.
