PESHAWAR, Pakistan - The Pakistani Taliban have killed 15 kidnapped troops in revenge for military operations against them near the Afghan border, a Taliban spokesman said on Thursday, vowing further such attacks.

Pakistani forces have targeted militants in the northwestern Khyber tribal region on and off for more than four years.

"This is revenge for the killing of our comrades in Khyber by Pakistani forces," Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), told Reuters. "We will soon take revenge for other operations too."
