DERA ISMAIL KHAN, October 13, 2009 (Frontier Star): Police have sealed an office and inter net caf of banned organization Harkat-ul-Mujahidin
in Dera Ismail Khan and arrested 5 Persons including their chief Qari Siraj Khalid.
Pakistan, the United States' newest and most unlikely ally, provides what it admits as `moral and political' support to Harkat-ul-Mujahidin
-- a group that appears on America's list of international terrorists.
9) These local militant groups include Lashkar-i-Jhangvi, Jundullah, Jaysh-i-Muhammad, Jamaat-ul-Furqan, Harkat-ul-Mujahidin
, Lashkar-i-Tayyiba, Sipah-i-Sahaba Pakistan, and Harkat-ul-Jihad-i-Islami.
They initially attended training camps operated by Kashmiri groups that were allied with al-Qa'ida--such as Harkat-ul-Mujahidin (Mohammed Siddique Khan: July 7 London metro attack), Lashkar-i-Tayyiba (Dhiren Barot: Operation Rhyme), and Jayshi-Muhammad (Shane Kent: Operation Pendennis)--before they were properly vetted or able to make the links necessary to attend an actual al-Qa'ida camp.
Also, LeT, TTP and the alphabet soup of other Pakistan-based jihadist groups to include Harkat-ul-Mujahidin (HuM), Jaysh-i-Muhammad (JM) and Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islam (HuJI) operate in the same sanctuaries that al-Qa'ida survived in and have already attracted Westerners to train and plot with them.
