Taliban faction claims ISI attack

The Jundullah faction of the banned Pakistan Taliban on Thursday claimed responsibility for the suicide attack on an ISI office in Sindh province, saying it was carried out to avenge the killing of commander Waliur Rehman in a US drone strike.
In a statement sent to TV news channels, Jundullah spokesman Ahmed Marwat said, ‘We sent four suicide bombers and our target was ISI. It was a revenge for the killing of Waliur Rehman (senior Taliban commander killed in drone strike earlier this year).

The statement blamed the Pakistan government of working with US forces. Marwat said the militants would continue attacking security forces for targeting the rebels. ‘These (intelligence officials) are friends of the US and until they refrain from their coalition with the US, we will continue to target them,’ he said.

Five persons, including one ISI deputy director, were killed when a group of suicide attackers stormed a high-security compound in Sukkur on Tuesday.
