MIRANSHAH - Hours after Pakistan on Tuesday ended a seven-month-old blockade of crucial NATO supply routes to Afghanistan, the Pakistani Taliban have issued a threat.
A Pakistani Taliban spokesman said it would attack NATO supply trucks and kill its drivers if they attempted to resume supplies to troops in Afghanistan.
Ehsanullah Ehsan said the Taliban "will not allow any truck to pass and will attack it".
"We will not only attack the supply truck but will also kill the drivers (of NATO supply trucks)," Ehsan added.
Islamabad yesterday decided to lift the blockade after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton apologised for the cross-border NATO air strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers in November last year.
