There are latest reports that TTP hirelings are being heavily armed and paid by CIA and made to infiltrate in Pakistan from Afghanistan. They are assigned with the tasks to fire back especially by mortars fire on different borders villages from inside Pakistan to instigate the clashes on the border.
Recently some civilian causality has also been reported in Afghani villages in Kunar province. Currently Pak army is engaged to check any such infiltration and day in and out these elements are being plucked and eliminated.
This is another CIA tactics to create a situation where by they foresee that in the name of hot pursuit; NATO forces may come across border to attack inside Pakistan. Continuation of drone attacks is also being conducted on the same pretext.
According to preliminary US military reports of Salala area post, it is being said that the Tehrik e taliban may have deliberately lured NATO forces to attack the Pakistanis.
American commanders insist that a joint US and Afghan patrol came under mortar and small arms fire early on Saturday morning. They requested back-up, the report suggests, and checked whether Pakistani forces were in the area. The answer was apparently negative.
Two hours later, while still hunting the insurgents, the US commander spotted what he thought was a militant encampment, with heavy weapons mounted on tripods. In fact this was a Pakistani military outpost, 300 metres inside Pakistani territory, in the mountainous Mohmand tribal area. Pakistani officials say the post was well known to NATO and US forces even used for number of their previous NATO-Pak flag meetings
The NATO joint patrol called in air strikes on the post at 2.21am local time. Apache attack helicopters and an AC-130 gunship destroyed the encampment, unaware it belonged to the Pakistan military. US officials quoted by the Associated Press say they believe the Taliban chose the location for the attack in a deliberate — and successful — attempt to get US and Pakistani forces to fire at each other.
Meanwhile the Pakistan military said that the NATO helicopters that attacked the border post had returned a second time and fired on them again.
Pakistan’s director general of military operations, Major general Ishfaq Nadeem, said that the first attack, starting at about 12.30am local time, lasted about half an hour and had caused all the casualties. NATO helicopters hit a border post called Volcano, cutting all its communications. In response, the nearby Boulder post engaged the helicopters with anti-aircraft guns and all available weapons. The attack ended after the Pakistani military managed to contact their NATO counterparts. “We informed them about the attack. But, the helicopters reappeared and also engaged the Boulder post,” Nadeem told journalists in a special media briefing, according to news agency reports.
NATO forces are likely to take this plea in the forth coming Inquiry as how NATO attacked Pakistani military posts where NATO is poised to allege that they only retaliated after finding that they have received some fire from these posts….which is total an absurd plea,…knowing it to be such these are old NATO known posts in the area from where the insurgents have totally been eliminated.
