Nato attack was preplanned: DG MO

Director General Military Operations Major General Ashfaq Nadeem Thursday termed the Nato airstrike on Salala check posts in Pakistan on November 26 as a pre-planned attack.

Giving a briefing to Senate Standing Committee on Defence which met here under the chair of Javed Ashraf Qazi, the DG MO said that after the attack on the check post it was wrongly informed that Volcano check post had come under attack.

He also said that when the Company Commander rushed to the check post he saw that Nato helicopters had returned, which kept the firing assault on until the two check posts were completely destroyed.

"The bunkers were specifically targeted and destroyed," Maj. Gen. Ashfaq Nadeem told the Senate body.

He said that terrorists always hide inside ditches and cracks and they never come up on mountain peaks.

The DG MO said that it was puzzling as to whether the drone attacks in Afghanistan were the acts of Special Forces or ISAF.
