The Pakistani Taliban vowed to send fighters to help the Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, adding the group should set aside its differences with other militant organisations in that region.

IS militants have taken over vast swathes of territory in Syria and Iraq, but have also been vying for supremacy with other militant groups like the Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra front, which it formally cut ties with in February.

Shahidullah Shahid, a spokesman for the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan which was formed in 2007 and formally allies itself with Al-Qaeda, urged all militant organisations fighting in the Middle East to unite for the greater good.
