Pakistan planning to send astronauts into space in two years: Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman 0

Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman said on Thursday that if an American drone was to enter Pakistan's airspace, it would be shot down.

This announcement comes weeks after a U.S. drone strike targeted a terrorist compound in the country's tribal region near the Afghanistan border, slaying three militants. Pakistan has, on several occasions, protested entry of drones into its own airspace but has also reportedly given a quiet consent on other occasions. "I have ordered PAF to shoot down drones, including those of the U.S., if they enter our airspace, violating the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

'We will not allow anyone to violate our airspace.

The report also mentions that the Central Intelligence Agency has been responsible for all United States drone strikes in Pakistan until November 2017.

The report claimed that the Central Intelligence Agency is responsible for all U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan until November 30 this year. Senior leadership of terror group as well as hundreds of civilians have been killed in these strikes. "I have ordered PAF to shoot down drones, including those of the United States, if they enter our airspace, violating the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity", Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman told an audience in Islamabad. "We suffered a lot of losses in the incident but did not lose our morale", the report quoted Aman as saying. "We have continued the fight against extremism with unflinching vigour and resolve since then, transforming the PAF into a much stronger force".
