Al-Qaida, Taliban ask Pakistani militants for help
DERA ISMAIL KHAN: Pakistani militant commanders say prominent al-Qaida and Afghan Taliban fighters have asked them to set aside differences and step up support for the battle against US-led forces in Afghanistan.
The Pakistani Taliban commanders say the request came during two meetings in Pakistan’s tribal region in November and December.
They said Monday that the senior al-Qaida commander Abu Yahya al-Libi attended both meetings, as did Sirajuddin Haqqani, the de-facto head of the most feared militant group in Afghanistan.
