Never know if tactically brilliant TSPN would have shifted their assets to civilian airport to avoid meeting their 72 in Mehran and the TTP homed in on this "trick"

You never know. Who knows how many saab were ayesha-ed or how many p3s attained their 72. Civil aircarft, especially if operated by kufr airlinea may end up being scrapped even with a bullet hole or two. Lets see when flights resume and videos show up fom people ibside. there must have been hundreds of cameras on that emirates plane. may be someone will talk. unlike bases, this one will be visible. there is the moral victory of insurance rates being close to somalia now, lets see who continues to fly.

From NightWatch for the night of June 8, 2014

Pakistan: Three deadly security incidents occurred on Sunday.

The most sensational was the attack at Karachi International Airport by a group of gunmen, in which at least 24 people died, including ten attackers. At least 14 people were wounded. The killed terminal staff personnel were said to be mostly security guards from the Airport Security Force (ASF) and some airline workers.

The authorities suspended flight operations, closed the airport terminal and evacuated staff and passengers. Army commandos engaged in a six-hour firefight until they killed the attackers and declared the airport secure.

During this Watch, gunfire resumed at Karachi, wounding one paramilitary Sindh Ranger on the morning of 9 June. In addition, the Pakistani Taliban (TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack. A senior official claimed its purpose was to hijack an aircraft as passengers were boarding. The rampage followed after airport security personnel prevented the hijacking.

Comment: After the publicity about the fragmentation of the TTP, its leaders evidently feel the need to demonstrate their strength as a threat. If that is the case, Readers should expect more sensational attacks.

A spokesman for the Rangers said "Indian arms and ammunition" were found on the bodies of the dead militants. There is no corroboration of this statement.

The second deadly attack occurred in western Baluchistan near the border with Iran. Five suicide bombers attacked the two hotels where 300 Shiite pilgrims were staying before returning to Iran. More than 23 civilians were killed.

Comment: No group has claimed responsibility for this attack, but attacks against Shiites usually are the handiwork of Sunni militant groups. The Pakistani Taliban are openly hostile to Shiites. Attacks occur regularly in Quetta, Baluchistan's capital, and in other major cities that have a significant Shiite population, such as Karachi and Islamabad.

The third incident was a successful government operation in Baluchistan against fighters from the Baluch Republican Army (BRA). Government paramilitary forces killed ten insurgents.

Comment: The third incident was a follow-up to an operation last Thursday in which government forces killed 30 BRA members. The BRA is responsible for attacks on gas pipelines and infrastructure in Baluchistan.

The three incidents showcase the diversity, dispersal and gravity of the threats to Pakistan's internal security. The attack at Karachi demonstrates the reach of one or more Pakistani Taliban factions. The last such attack in Karachi was against a naval base in 2011.

Afghanistan: On Sunday Afghanistan's National Security Council (NSC) accused "foreign intelligence services" of responsibility for Friday's attack targeting presidential front-runner Abdullah Abdullah. Abdullah survived the assassination attempt, which included a suicide bombing against his campaign motorcade in Kabul. Twelve people died.

"Initial investigations indicate foreign intelligence services were involved in this incident through Lashkar-e-Taiba in an organized manner, and the terrorists were aiming to disrupt the election in Afghanistan," according to an official statement.

Afghanistan-Pakistan: Afghanistan said last week that it was pulling out of security talks in Islamabad because of an increase in cross-border attacks.

The NSC "condemned" the increasing numbers of "rocket attacks by the Pakistani military against the country." It said the attacks are aimed at disrupting the run-off presidential election scheduled for 14 June. The NSC statement said Friday's attack on Abdullah was "the worst incident during the election campaign."

Comment: "Foreign intelligence services" refers to Pakistani intelligence. The Afghan government is pre-disposed to perceive Pakistani meddling in every serious security incident. It has good reason to be suspicious because almost all weapons and explosives in eastern and southern Afghanistan ultimately come from or through Pakistan. The most dangerous groups fighting the Afghan government have bases and protection in Pakistan and a long history of support from Pakistani intelligence.

An Abdullah Abdullah-led government would have strained relations with Pakistan because he primarily represents tribes and interests that are suspicious of the Pashtuns and deeply suspicious of Pakistani intelligence meddling.

No Highlighting as all needs Highlighting!

Karachi Airport 'Revenge' Attack Leaves 23 Dead

At least 23 people have been killed after gunmen disguised as police guards attacked a terminal at Pakistan's Jinnah international airport in Karachi.

Militants armed with automatic weapons, a rocket launcher and grenades stormed the airport and were involved in an intense six-hour firefight with the airport's security force, police, paramilitaries and commandos.

Ten of the dead were the attackers, according to Pakistan's paramilitary Rangers.

Also killed were at least four airport security staff, civilian airport employees and four Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) staff.

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack saying it was in revenge for their late leader Hakimullah Mehsud, who was killed in a US drone strike in November.

"We have yet to take revenge for the deaths of hundreds of innocent tribal women and children in Pakistani air strikes," spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said.

"It's just the beginning, we have taken revenge for one (Mehsud), we have to take revenge for hundreds."

He also dismissed the possibility of a new round of peace talks with the Pakistan government.

Television footage showed what appeared to be a major fire and plumes of smoke floating across the runway near parked aircraft.

Pakistan's military spokesman Major General Asim Bajwa said after the operation had ended:

"Update: Area cleared. No damage to aircraft, fire visible in pics was not plane but a building, now extinguished. All vital assets intact."

Maj Gen Bajwa added that ammunition, rockets and grenades were recovered from the dead attackers.

"Precautionary sweep after day light. Airport will be cleared by midday for operations, handed back to CAA (Civil Aviation Authority)/ASF (Airport Security Force). Pakistan Zindabad (long live Pakistan)!" he tweeted.

Heavy gunfire and multiple explosions had been heard coming from the airport as authorities scrambled to secure the area.

The terminal targeted by the militants was said to be used for VIPs and cargo. Passengers were evacuated and all flights diverted.

The attack will raise fresh concerns about Pakistan's security situation, and questions about how militants were able to penetrate the airport which serves one of the world's biggest cities.

Karachi has been the site of frequent militant attacks in the past.

RAWALPINDI: An American woman, who had allegedly been ‘blacklisted’ by Pakistani authorities, was deported to Kuwait soon after arriving at Benazir Bhutto International Airport on Friday morning, the airport sources said.

The woman was spotted by the Federal Investigation Agency’s immigration staff when the check-out of passengers arriving on Kuwait Airways was in progress.

After the immigration staff found out that her name was blacklisted, she was disallowed from leaving the airport, the sources said.

Later, she was deported to Kuwait on the same flight.

She was escorted to the plane by the immigration officers and handed over to the airline crew. It is not known why she had been blacklisted by the Pakistani authorities.

Pakis would protest in English if they could plant fake evidence and accuse India. But see how green on green appears and evidence is presented. BAHUT SECULAR.

Now seculars, 'internationalists', greener-than-thou and all such involved parties will all deal amongst each other so pseudo echandee of all isn't tarnished. Indians will know how hollow these ideologies are, what's the point.

‘Factor-8’ injections recovered at Karachi airport

KARACHI – Several made-in-India injections “Factor-8” have been recovered during a search operation at the Karachi airport, officials said on Monday.

army uses Factor-8 injections in frontline combats and these injections are not available in markets. Officials said that these injections are believed to be used for stopping bleeding from injuries, adding these injections were in the possession of militants who launched a coordinated attack on airport last night resulting in the martyrdom of 19 people including nine security personnel.

All the 10 militants died following operation of the security forces. Sources said that recovered injections are made in India giving rise to suspicion about Indian involvement in the attack, while some weapon used by terrorists were also reported Indian made.

However, Pakistan authorities have not yet confirmed this and have said that they are investigating the issue.

LAHORE, Pakistan – The Taliban claimed responsibility for a brazen siege on Karachi's Jinnah International Airport overnight Monday that left dozens dead, saying the attack was in retaliation for drone strikes on villages in Pakistan's troubled northwest border region.

The militant group vowed to continue their campaign.

"This is just the beginning," Shahidullah Shahid, spokesman for the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) told the Express Tribune, a Pakistani daily.

Factor VII was once popular with the US Military in Iraq and Afghanistan, with Afghanistan being perhaps where the ununiformed Mohammadden terrorists of the TTP picked up their stockpile. The drug was subsequently found to have side-effects that made it unsafe for treating combat trauma:

Approved by the FDA only for treating rare forms of hemophilia, Factor VII was introduced as a treatment for combat trauma in Iraq in 2003 — before clinical testing of such a use on humans had begun.

By 2006, Army protocol in Baghdad called for injecting it into virtually every casualty with signs of serious bleeding. Some Special Forces units in Afghanistan supplied combat medics with the drug, to inject in the field. And based on anecdotal reports of success by military doctors, it was widely adopted as a treatment for traumatic injuries by trauma centers throughout the world.

Numerous clinical studies have since shown, however, that Factor VII is ineffective at controlling traumatic bleeding and can potentially cause blood clots that lead to heart attacks and strokes. A series of articles in The Baltimore Sun in 2006 detailed the Army's enthusiasm for Factor VII and profiled three soldiers injected with it in Baghdad. Two subsequently died of clot-related complications. The FDA added a safety warning to the drug's label last year.

PTI Condemns TTP over Karachi Airport - DAWN
The PTI core committee, under the chairmanship of Imran Khan met today and condemned the government's total failure to protect its citizens and critical installations from terrorist attacks. The core committee also condemned the TTP for the attack on Karachi airport,” a press release issued by the party said.

“It was a complete security and intel failure,” the statement said, adding that “lessons from the Mehran base incident were not learnt".

PTI chief Imran Khan had earlier criticised the government’s failure to provide security to citizens.

His statement had come on Twitter in relation to the attack on the airport.


So, the condemnation of the Taliban is just cursory.
