Pakistan Taliban (TTP) has released a video of 15 blindfolded Pakistani soldiers being shot by Taliban extremists near the Afghanistan border.
The video taken by the TTP was released to warn the Pakistani army against patrolling near the Afghan border.
Although it is difficult to verify the content, there has been no reaction from the Pakistan government on the killing its of army men so far.
The video obtained by Reuters on January 21, shows 15 blindfolded soldiers, all handcuffed sitting next to each other on a barren hill top and a bearded Taliban militant holding an AK-47 rifle speaking about revenge.
The TTP kidnapped 15 Frontier Corps soldiers on December 23, 2011 near the Afghan border, according to Reuters.
"Twelve of our comrades were besieged and mercilessly martyred in the Khyber Agency [area]," the militant spoke in local language in the video.
"Our pious women were also targeted".
"To avenge those comrades, we will kill these men. We warn the government of Pakistan that if the killing of our friends is not halted, this will be the fate of you all."
"They attacked us with rockets and killed a sentry," the video shows one of the kidnapped personnel describing how the TTP militants attacked their base.
"One ran away. The Taliban entered the fort and captured us with our weapons. They tied our hands, put us in a Datsun and took us away."
As the Pakistani soldiers stood quietly, the Taliban militants shouted: "We will cross all limits to avenge your blood."
"God is greatest," one militant shouted.
The grab shows militants taking turns one after another to fire bullets at the standing men.
"If the killing of our friends is not stopped, this will be the fate of all infidel armies, God willing," one of the militant threatens.
The fifteen soldiers were buried in Peshawar with full military honours on January 5, according to Reuters.
The TTP, formed in 2007, is allied to the Afghan Taliban and al Qaeda and mainly operates in Pakistan's tribal areas. The group wants to dislodge the Pakistan government and has been accused of staging a series of attacks across the country in the past few years.
The Pakistani government and the militants have been engaged in peace talks in the past. It remains to be seen how the government will react to the video which is being circulated openly and whether it will have any impact on the peace talks.
