The Tehreek-e-Taliban, the Pakistani branch of the Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack on a Pakistani air force base in Peshawar on Friday, and has reportedly released a video showing the attackers. 

A group of more than 10 terrorists targeted the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) camp in Peshawar early on Friday, and at least 8 terrorists have been killed in operations so far, while 10 soldiers have been injured. 

The Pakistan Taliban spokesperson Muhammad Khurasani sent out mails to Pakistani journalists claiming responsibility for the latest attack, Dawn reported. 

The TTP has also released a video showing the attackers preparing for the strike, Pakistani journalists tweeted. 

The Pakistan Taliban's last major attack in Peshawar was in December 2014, when militants massacred over 100 students at an army school, prompting the government to launch an offensive against the terrorists. 

On Friday, about 7 to 10 terrorists attacked the guard room at the air force base and were immediately surrounded by the quick reaction force team who took down several militants, Director-General (DG) Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major-General Asim Bajwa tweeted.
