Pakistan-US Air Strike
The U.S aircraft have again violated Pakistan's air space and launched another air strike in the country's South Waziristan tribal region, witnesses in the region said Thursday.
There was no casualty but the air raids at Angoor Ada near the Afghan border created panic among the people, they said.
According to sources, the American planes Wednesday night bombed Zeyub mountainous range, around 25 km west of Wana, the center of South Waziristan.
The air strike uprooted trees and created deep caves in the mountainous region.
After the American force air strike, more than ten mortar shells were fired from the Bermal area in Afghanistan, locals said.
The shells landed at Angoor Adda, Bagar and Moosa Nika and caused huge explosions, they said.
An official said that the local administration had also received information about the air strike.
The air strike on Waziristan came a day after American planes bombed Mohmad Agency and killed 11 Pakistani soldiers.
Sources said that the American spy planes were seen flying at low altitude in North Waziristan.
