Kamra base attack: Three out of nine militants identified
[Dawn] Air force authorities informed the Parliamentary Committee on National Security (PCNS) that three cut-throats involved in the Kamra airbase attack had been identified and that they were residents of the Punjab province, DawnNews reported.
The committee's session was held at the Parliament House here on Friday and was presided over by Raza Rabbani.
Briefing the committee members, air force authorities said that three out of the nine cut-throats who had attacked the Minhas airbase in Kamra had been identified and that they were residents of Punjab. One of the three hails from Sialkot.
In August, cut-throats armed with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons had carried out a brazen attack under cover of darkness on the Minhas base of the Pakistain Air Force at Kamra.
The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistain (TTP) grabbed credit for the assault.
At the time, the air force front man said that eight cut-throats had been killed during the crossfire within the boundary walls of the airbase and one went kaboom!" within the outer perimeters of the base where he had reportedly been hiding.
Pakistain has experienced numerous retaliatory attacks launched by bad turban organizations that are active in the northwestern part of the country because of its role as a strategic ally in the war in Afghanistan.
