Yesterday, the Pakistan Army had said that the attack on Pakistan Air Force base camp in Peshawar was carried out by a splinter group of banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and the foul play was planned in Afghanistan.

“The attackers came from Afghanistan and the whole foul play was planned in the neighbouring country,” said Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asim Salim Bajwa, while holding a press talk.

“This attack was being executed through direct coordination from Afghanistan as well,” he asserted.
