A spokesperson of the TTF was quoted as saying, “They include target killers and suicide attackers. They have been ordered to shoot the older students but not the children”.

“This attack is a response to Zarb-e-Azab and the killing of Taliban fighters and harassing their families.”

The Pakistan’s military is engaged in a fierce gun battle with the militants since the last six hours and a massive “rescue operation” has been launched.

According to NDTV.com, “Doctors said most injured have been shot in head. The hospital has reported a shortage of blood and has sought blood donations urgently.”

At the school, heavy gunfire and at least two blasts were reportedly heard from inside the school. Helicopters swooped overhead and a fleet of ambulances ferried wounded children to hospital.”
