Hangu drone strike was on individual target morphed into Afghan refugees

Rawalpindi, January 25, 2018 (PPI-OT):The drone strike on 24 January in Spintal, Hangu district was on individual target who had morphed into Afghan Refugees and not any organised terrorists sanctuary which have been eliminated. Out of total 54 Afghan Refugees Camps / complexes in Pakistan, 43 are in KP with overlap in FATA (complexes in Hangu including where drone struck on 24 Jan 18 shown on map). This validates Pakistan’s stance that left over terrorists easily morph into Afghan Refugees camps/complexes. Thus their early and dignified return to Afghanistan is essential. Pakistan’s brotherly hospitality to peaceful Afghan Refugees must not be exploited by the terrorists.
