    Martyrdom operation took place between the night of 14th August and 15th August, by 16 Martyrdom Operators of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (Jamaat-ul-Ahrar), Mehsud Division and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, attacked 2 airbases in Quetta," read the statement, which was released in English. "This attack started from 11:00 at night and carried on till early next morning. In the last news we received it was reported that 1 ammunition depot was destroyed, 2 jets were destroyed and around 35 security officials were killed."

    The Taliban also said the group would "avenge the atrocities being carried out in Waziristan and upon the rest of the Pakistan people," referring to the ongoing military operation in North Waziristan that is targeting select jihadist groups, including the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

    Pakistani officials said that the coordinated suicide assaults on Pakistani Air Force Base Samungli, which hosts two squadrons of F-7 interceptor aircraft, and Khalid Army Aviation Base, were carried out by 14 jihadists, 11 of whom were killed and three were captured. The Pakistani military reported no casualties and said the suicide assault teams did not penetrate the perimeter of the base.In one of the more prominent attacks, IMU/al Qaeda leader Bekkay Harrach, who was also known as Al Hafidh Abu Talha al Almani, was killed while leading an assault on Bagram Airbase in May 2010. Harrach led a team of 20 fighters assembled from the ranks of al Qaeda, the Pakistani Taliban, and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, according to his martyrdom statement. Before his death, Harrach produced propaganda for al Qaeda in which he threatened to attack Germany.

    Germany supports the US involvement in Pakistan. But we do believe the primary focus of this involvement should be for the protection of civilians and also to prevent future terrorist attacks in other areas of Pakistan. Germany shall continue to send aid to Pakistan, and we urge other nations to do so, to help provide safety and stability for Pakistan and its people.

    We are relieved to hear that there were no casualities for the Pakistani military and that the base is secure in this horrific event.

    The Oriental Republic of Uruguay sends its support to Pakistan's battle with terrorism although it wishes the Pakistani Government would be more transparent and supportive of the West regarding Islamist terrorism. However, the Uruguayan people are eager that this does not spill over into a global war.
