The assassination of the leader of a renegade Pakistani Taliban faction by one of his own men Tuesday underscores a growing rift in the ranks of the militant group as it braces for an impending army assault in the volatile northwest.

Qari Zainuddin's killing sets back government hopes of exploiting these internal divisions in the South Waziristan tribal region, where the army has been pounding strongholds of Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud in apparent preparation for a major, U.S.-backed offensive.

Zainuddin’s assassination is a major loss of Pak Army and it will delay the process of operation against Mehsud & other activists. However, when these operations has been started two months ago, there was no sign of aid or support of tribes in Pak Army’s plan and no strategy has been set by security forces to bring in confidence of these tribesmen. As because in Army’s opinion these tribes were also a strong hold of Taliban but when steps raised towards the fight stuffs becomes easier without any intervention and these tribes or tribesmen contacted with army at their own will and not a outcome of any plan or strategy.

So when tribesmen like Zainuddin step forward by himself then there would definitely be other tribesmen in the northwest who could provide the support to the army again and if not then Pak Army is in not depended on them because security forces has been fighting on there own plans and not on the support of tribes.
