A new bloc of the Pakistani Taliban has vowed to carry on the movement's campaign of bombings and shootings, in the militants' first video message since a major army assault on their strongholds.

Senior commanders announced the creation of a new hardline grouping within the umbrella Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan but insisted they were not splitting from the movement.

The Pakistani military has been waging a major assault on TTP bases in North Waziristan tribal area since mid-June and says it has crippled the militants' command and control structure.

The video, posted online, showed around two dozen Taliban cadres in an undisclosed location, announcing the creation of the new Jamaat-ul-Ahrar group, to be headed by Maulana Qasim Khorasani.
