Pakistan Air Space violated by US led Helicopters.


JNN Oct.26th. 2011.US-led NATO helicopters have violated Pakistan’s airspace over North Waziristan tribal region near the border with Afghanistan, Pakistani military officials say.

JNN Oct.26th 2011. “Two helicopters intruded several kilometers inside Pakistan territory in Datta Khel town around 2:00 am (2100 GMT Tuesday),” a military official told AFP, on condition of anonymity.

The US-led helicopter entered Pakistan from the eastern Afghan province of Paktia and circled the border village of Zoi Nara, the official added.

A NATO spokesman, however, said their “operational reporting” showed no ISAF helicopters had crossed the border.

The NATO helicopters left Pakistan airspace after Pakistani forces fired “warning shots,” Pakistani military officials said.

According to the report, the US-led helicopter flew at a low altitude and circled the area for five minutes.

North Waziristan is the stronghold of pro-Taliban militants and the Haqqani network.

The developments also come as reports of US troops massing in Afghanistan along the Pakistani border have raised concerns in the country about a potential US plan to military attack the North Waziristan tribal region.

US President Obama has frequently blamed Pakistan for not doing enough to fight terrorism in its troubled northwestern tribal belt along the Afghan border.

US planes and helicopters have increasingly violated Pakistani airspace over the past months.

The US claims its air raids target militants who cross the Pakistani border into Afghanistan. But locals say civilians are the main victims of the unauthorized attacks.

The unauthorized US drone attacks have drawn strong criticism from the Pakistani people and officials.

The US invaded Afghanistan with the official objective of curbing militancy and bringing peace and stability to the region, however, after nine years the region remains unstable and militancy has expanded towards Pakistan.

Analysts say the US is looking for an excuse to expand its military operations in the troubled South and Central Asian region to secure bases near Russia and China.

  1. Any violation of air space entitles the countries defences to shoot down the intruders whoever they may be but the authorities in that country are busy in their filthy luxuries
    collecting cuts and %ages and who cares who intrudes in their sacred lands. This impotent attitude has given rise to daily sectarian violences so rife in the entire land , what an awful and shameful situation which they call their Paakland . Shame on the legacy of Zialess Nahaq where every day we hear the killing and bomb blasts either in this state or that state in this mohalla or that mohalla of their main city of prestige and no one stirs ,this country is
    going to the dogs ultimately, fragmented in bits and pieces, it seems if the youth do not wake up..
