Mumbai: In one of the most brutal attacks on humanity, Pakistan Taliban on Tuesday killed 132 school children along with nine staff members and left over 250 injured in Peshawar. The unprecedented slaughter shows that the Pakistani military has not been able to bring under control the Taliban in their country, which is also known as TTP.
Terrorists who attacked the School in Peshawar have claimed that this was the retaliation for US backed efforts to wipe the group that has helped protect the terror outfit, al Qaeda. The objective of the attack was very clear, hence the attack on a school which is run by the army for the children of soldiers.
The main motive of the attack was to hurt the children in their safe havens and homes. According to a statement by Pakistan Taliban, the gruesome attack is a perfect revenge for the hurt caused to them and their families, by the government.
Reports say that Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has a long list of attacks that it will carry out in Pakistan against the security forces. The regions where there is a strong presence of the terror group, have served as a refuge for al Qaeda, which is the main American target.
Post the entire attack, it appears that the terrorists had little interest in taking hostages. One attacker blew himself up inside the school premises, the others went from classroom to classroom killing teachers and students. The death toll currently stands at 142 and still counting as there critically injured children in the hospital.
