Pak air force killed 126 civilians and injured 87 – latest War Crimes of army chief

By: Earthman, International Professor

Today barbarians of Pakistan air force have killed more than 126 civilians and left above 100 injured. Pak air force says that on a tip it raided the place, after first strike when peoples were pulling dead and wounded from the rubble, brave pilots of Pakistan air force strike back and killed dozens again.

Pakistan air force chief, Rao Qamar Suleman (Salesman) is a war criminal and Ranghar by caste, three feet nine inch air force chief is one of the active member of the Musharraf gang of criminal mentality army generals. For further reading about crimes of Qamar Salesman please click link given below.

Question is who is behind in providing tips to air force for attacking on civilians. The culprit behind the scene is surely Maj. Gen Tariq Khan the IG of FC (Frontier Corpse). A war criminal that is fighting American war of terror since long, after first gulf war in 1991 he was awarded U.S. Legion of Merit on Dec 09, 2007. He worked at CENTCOM, Tempa, Florida U.S. during 2004-05 and he is on the pay role of CIA since long. He is IG, FC since Sept. 2008.

Since his case for promotion is lying at GHQ under consideration, so, while last one month he is very active in interviewing with foreign magazines, not mentioned by Pakistan media. His funny statement that Al Kaeda would be eliminated by Jun 2010 made lot of jokes in western media. Jang group has also published an article two weeks back in daily Jang to praise his role in American war of terror. That was part of his media campaign for next promotion. However columnist was so naïve that he had no idea that what is difference between Frontier Constabulary, Frontier Force and Frontier Corpse.

Mjor Gen Tariq Khan is one of the most powerful people in today’s Pak army; he is under direct command of Gen. Tariq Majeed Butcher (the war criminal of Jamia Hafsa) and part of Secretary Defense Gen Athar Ali’s Mahdi Army. Athar Ali was on right hand of Gen. Kiyani at the time of those so called strategic dialogue that was held at the residence of Mike Millen last week. Maj Gen Tariq is technically not under command of Gen. Kiyani and has his parallel state under control of Pentagon. His head quarter is at the Castle of Bala Hisar, Peshawar and a centre for missing person or peoples under detention of army since many years. One of the known torture cells of ISI.

Kurram agency and Orakzai agency is head quarter of Iranian backed Mahdi Army and has an emotional flash point for its activists in Pakistan army, Aviation and Air Force. So, committed pilots are used to kill as much civilian Sunny population on the name of Taliban. Within last two weeks at least 2000 Sunny civilians have been killed and whereas injured are in thousand. Air force is destroying homes, killing women and children, a dozen mosques, schools have been destroyed.

Today’s barbaric actions of Pakistan Air Force have been mentioned by all leading papers around the globe, slightly differing in death toll, Telegraph U.K. mentioned above 100 civilians, Associated Press: 96, Agency France has confirmed death toll and Aljazeera: above 100,  daily the Nation: 104, Indo Asian News: 126 dead. Almost all major agencies have confirmed injured around 100 as well.    

Pakistan Air Force attacked on Mosque of Tableeghi Jamaat and killed 100

Last week Pakistan Air Force F-16’s attacked with laser guided bombs targeted a mosque belonging to Tableeghi Jamaat was completely smashed to rubble along with an adjacent school in Orakzai agency killing above 60 students at the spot.

Pak Air force jets are hovering over the area and involved in killing of civilians without any justification, according to reports more than 150 civilians were killed, 90 injured and dozens were arrested including more than 50 school children were killed in barbaric attacks in Ghaljo, Mamuzai, Adam Khel Kalay and Mirobak areas of upper and lower Orakzai agency.

The attack under banner of Khwakh De Sham operation was conducted on advise of Rao Qamar Suleman (Salesman) the so called chief of PAF for making numbers in front of Gen. Kiyani who was at Washington same day and to enhance his image as real American Bull Terrier.

On Feb 10, 2010 a Cobra attack helicopter was shot down by locals, the helicopter was flying in the Nangrosa area of Tirah Valley, it was the first attack helicopter brought down by militants’ fire,” the sources said. “Nangrosa region in Tirah Valley is a mountainous area and helicopters have to fly low in order to navigate through it. During investigations, “circumstantial” and other evidence had concluded that the cause of the crash was “enemy fire”. Later a rescue team, led by Brigadier Hussain, one of the operative of Iranian backed Mahdi Army was also ambushed and killed. The brigadier was killed in the attack while two junior commissioned officers were injured.

Later images of Brig. Hussain’s funeral prayers were not published by media to hide his identity and his links to Mahdi Army. However Iranian sponsored website letusbuildpakistan.com had been lamenting for hiding his sectarian identity. This is not the first time, previously when another helicopter was crashed in South Waziristan area, out of three dozen army officials, three quarter killed were belonged to Parachinar. That reflects sectarian nature of war and role of Gen. Kiyani to fight American war on sectarian lines.

UN Human rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch must record such violations of Human Rights and Geneva Convention and criminals may be brought to International Court of Justice for their War Crimes on behest of Anglo-Americans.

Shame on Athar Abbas for floating lies, every one knows that Air Force has killed civilians, why everyone in Pakistan army is making fool to public. One reason is very clear that their war is not for Pakistan but their war is for dollars.

Hundreds protest civilian deaths in Tirah

BARA: Hundreds of people demonstrated on Tuesday against the suspected killing of civilians in the Sara Vela area of Khyber Agency’s Tirah Valley in airstrikes conducted a few days ago.

According to reports, jet fighters initially targeted a house owned by Saeed Khan. As people started gathering at the site minutes later to pull out bodies from the debris, the jets struck again, killing over “60 civilians”.

However, army spokesman Maj Gen Athar Abbas had reportedly denied that any of the dead were civilians, and said the army had intelligence that militants were gathering at the site. On Tuesday, political leaders of Khyber Agency, tribal elders and hundreds of tribesmen participated in the demonstration, which started from Bab-e-Khyber and culminated in Jamrud tehsil. The demonstrators called on the government to tender an officially apology for the “killing of innocent tribesmen”. They said they had been “disappointed” by the death of civilians in bombings. sajid ali

Pakistan army is white elephant

Brave Pakistani army's shameless character, It is working as mercenary force for dollars: Every stastics is not mentioned but at least confirms that Pakistan's FC is working under foreigners: 

U.S. military playing expanded role in Pakistan

(Reuters) - U.S. Special Operations Forces on a training mission in Pakistan are playing an expanded but largely unseen role in the country's counterinsurgency campaign, working with paramilitary units to "hold and build" tribal areas as militants are cleared out.

World

U.S. defense and administration officials say the elite trainers, who currently number more than 100, have not and are not authorized to take part in Pakistani military offensives in the semi-autonomous tribal regions, known as the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, or FATA, along the Afghan border.

Pakistan has balked at U.S. offers of joint military operations there, officials said on condition of anonymity.

But Special Ops trainers play a bigger role than has been widely disclosed in helping Pakistan's paramilitary Frontier Corps, such as surveying and coordinating projects aimed at winning "hearts and minds" and preventing Taliban fighters from returning to areas once they have been pushed out.

A Pentagon proposal would deepen that role by creating a special $10 million pool of funds the trainers could spend more quickly on civil affairs and humanitarian projects in the FATA in coordination with their Pakistani counterparts.

U.S. defense and administration officials spoke about the training program and the new proposal on condition of anonymity because, as one said, the relatively small American military presence is such a "radioactive" issue in Pakistan.

U.S. and Pakistani officials worry that detailed disclosures about the role of Special Ops could compromise operational security, spark a backlash among Pakistanis against their government and fuel already high anti-American sentiment.

There are 200 U.S. military personnel in Pakistan, including troops who guard the sprawling American Embassy compound in Islamabad. The number of Special Operations trainers fluctuates from as little as 60 to about 120.

A February bombing that killed three Special Operations "civil affairs" specialists in northwest Pakistan partly exposed how small U.S. teams sometimes venture out beyond the confines of heavily guarded military bases.

'WINNING HEARTS AND MINDS'

Washington is in talks to increase the number of Special Ops trainers and authorize sending them to sectors deeper in the tribal regions, but details have yet to be worked out.

"This is in the line of essentially training," a senior U.S. defense official said of the Special Operations Forces. "This is a part of winning hearts and minds -- endearing the public to the military and to the government."

"We're in full support, essentially behind the scenes with a Pak-Mil (Pakistani military) face on it, to be able to have them legitimize the government of Pakistan and the military as the people that have brought security to the area and now are providing the initial tools to be able to help and build."

The $10 million in funds, which has yet to be approved by the Pentagon leadership, would be modeled after the Commanders' Emergency Response Program, or CERP, which has become a linchpin of U.S. counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan and has been credited with helping turn the tide in Iraq.

CERP-funded projects are intended to gain the confidence of local residents and leaders and discourage them from cooperating with insurgents. The program has been authorized for war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq -- not Pakistan.

"It does give me some different authorities to be able to assist the government of Pakistan, the Pak-Mil, a little bit quicker, with the right accountability," the senior U.S. defense official said. "We have controls in place," he added when asked about congressional concerns about oversight.

At $10 million, the CERP-like funding would represent a tiny fraction of the billions of dollars in U.S. aid promised to Pakistan, although the amount could be expanded later.

As was the case in Iraq and Afghanistan, the senior defense official said a CERP-like program in Pakistan "might be useful, particularly after a conflict-affected area, to immediately, rapidly go in, do quick impact projects that the Pak-Mil have come to us to seek help with, whether it be electricity, whether it be water, whether it be road."

Alongside large increases in funding to train and equip Pakistani forces for counterinsurgency operations, U.S. President Barack Obama has authorized the CIA to sharply expand a counterterrorism campaign of aerial drone strikes against al Qaeda and Taliban targets near the Afghan border.

Under the proposal, the $10 million would come out of State Department economic assistance funding for Pakistan, officials briefed on the matter said.

Critics say the move risked stoking concerns in Pakistan about U.S. meddling and could open the door to a further escalation down the road.

Advocates say an expanded Special Operations role in development is needed because U.S. government projects normally take months or longer to get approved, and because the security environment is too unstable in large parts of the FATA for nonmilitary organizations to lead the effort.

The senior defense official said the goal was to "seed the environment to then allow the security to calm down, people to return and for the NGOs (nongovernmental organizations) and USAID (the U.S. Agency for International Development) to follow in after."

PESHAWAR, Pakistan — Up to 71 civilians were killed in a weekend strike by Pakistani jets near the Afghan border, survivors and a government official said Tuesday — a rare confirmation of civilian casualties that risks undercutting public support for the fight against militants.

[Pakistani tribal elders gathered on Monday, April 12, 2010 in Khyber, Pakistan to discuss the situation raised after Pakistan army jets's air strikes on alleged suspected insurgents in Pakistani tribal area along Afghanistan border. More than 200,000 people have fled Pakistan's latest offensive against Taliban militants in the northwest, the United Nations said Monday, as fresh clashes in the remote region killed 41 insurgents and two soldiers.

The government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject, said authorities had already handed out the equivalent of $125,000 in compensation to families of the victims in a remote village in the Khyber tribal area.

Also Tuesday, a village elder claimed 13 civilians had been killed in U.S. missile strike on Monday night elsewhere in the northwest, contesting accounts by Pakistani security officials that four militants were killed.

Pakistan's tribal regions are largely out of bounds for reporters and dangerous to visit because of the likelihood of being abducted by militants, who still control much of the area, making it very difficult to verify casualty figures.

Army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas on Monday denied that any of the dead in the Pakistani air force attack were civilians, saying the army had intelligence that militants were gathering at the site of the strike. The victims were initially reported to be suspected militants. The military regularly reports killing scores of militants in airstrikes in the northwest, but rarely says it is responsible for civilian deaths.

The Pakistani army, under heavy pressure from the United States, has moved forcefully against Taliban and al-Qaida militants in the northwest over the last 18 months. The insurgents have been blamed for attacks on international troops across the border in Afghanistan as well as scores of attacks within Pakistan.

Pakistani politicians have either supported the operations or avoiding criticizing them, something of a change from several years ago when many backed negotiations with the insurgents. But civilian casualties threaten to undermine support for the offensives, both in the northwest and in the rest of Pakistan, where many people do not like the idea of the army being deployed against fellow Muslims.

The offensives have displaced more than 1 million people, and one newspaper said Tuesday that the deaths of innocents would strengthen support for the Taliban.

Two survivors interviewed Tuesday in a hospital in the main northwestern city of Peshawar gave the first detailed account of the attack, which took place Saturday morning.

They said most of the victims were killed when they were trying to rescue people trapped by an earlier strike on the house of a village elder.

"This house was bombed on absolutely wrong information, " said Khanan Gul Khan, a resident of the village who was visiting a relative in the hospital. "This area has nothing to do with militants."

Khan said many of the families in the village, Sara Walla, had sons serving in the security forces and that it had a history of cooperating with the army. He said the owner of the house that was bombed initially, Hamid Khan, had two sons serving in the paramilitary Frontier Corps.

He said 68 people were killed and many more wounded. The political official said Monday that the families of 71 victims had been compensated, but did not identify them.

Dilla Baz Khan suffered a fractured arm in the second attack, which he said came around two hours after the first one.

"We were about to pull out a lady from the rubble when another jet came and bombed us," he said from the orthopedic ward of the Hayatabad medical complex in Peshawar. "Then I lost consciousness. "

He said an official from the Khyber political administration visited him Monday and gave him $220 for the loss of four relatives, including his brother. "He said we are sorry for this, and we pray for your early recovery," he said.

Brief reports of significant civilian casualties in the strike Saturday have appeared in the local media in recent days, but have not attracted much attention or criticism. The army, while nominally under civilian control, is the most powerful institution in the country.

An editorial Tuesday in Dawn, a respected English-language daily, said it was clear that the dead had no links to the militants and that the incident "strengthens the hands of the Taliban." It said around 60 people were killed.

The United States also regularly attacks al-Qaida and Taliban targets in northwest Pakistan with missiles fired from unmanned drones. American officials do not acknowledge being behind the attacks, which are credited with killing scores of insurgents. Critics say those attacks also regularly claim civilian lives.

Pakistan intelligence officials, speaking on customary condition of anonymity, said a missile attack late Monday close to the town of Miran Shah in North Waziristan killed four suspected militants. Noor Gul, a resident in the village, disputed that, saying 13 civilians, including two children, were killed.

Zarar Khan reported from Islamabad. Associated Press Writers Chris Brummitt in Islamabad contributed to this report.

60 civilians killed in Tirah Bombing

Sunday, April 11, 2010

By Said Nazir Afridi & Ashrafuddin Pirzada

BARA/JAMRUD: Sixty civilians were killed and as many sustained injuries when fighter jets bombed Sra Vella in Jamrud Tehsil’s Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency on Saturday, local sources said.

However, official sources claimed 35 militants were killed when jets hit their hideouts in the valley.

The injured were shifted to hospitals in Jamrud and Peshawar through the difficult hilly areas and most of them succumbed to their injuries on the way, the sources said.

Tribal sources said two fighter jets dropped heavy bombs on the house of Hameed Gul in the Sra Vella area in Tirah Valley around 10:00am. As a result, the house was turned into rubble and three children and two women were killed.

“After 10 minutes of the bombardment when the villagers and labourers working on nearby water channel approached the house to retrieve the bodies, the fighter jets again bombed the house killing and injuring more than 150 people,” Sadiq Khan, an injured and eyewitness, told this scribe in the Civil Hospital Jamrud.

He said all those killed and injured, including women, in the bombardment were from Kokikhel, a sub-tribe of Afridis and were innocent people having no links with the militants.

Some of the slain tribesmen included a tribal elder, Said Noor, Khana Baan, Taweez Gul, Shaoor Baaz, Bismillah Khan, Amrat, Aman Shah, Tor Jan, Mahabat Khan, Daulat Khan, Khalid, Asadullah, Shakirullah, Khair Muhammad, Aziz, Umer Khan, Abid Khan, Khalid, Zahoor, Saeed, Qari Asadullah, Khanzeb, Waheel, Sabeel, Subedar Samandar Khan, Zahoor and Malik Jan.

“We are neither associated with the Taliban nor the militant group Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) then why security forces killed my son,” Ameen Jan, the father of Saeed, told this scribe while carrying a coffin for his son in Jamrud Bazaar.


He said the house which was bombarded by fighter jets was owned by three brothers Sher Mat Khan, who is a soldier in the Pakistan Army, and Yarmat Khan and Qimat Khan, who are serving in the Shawal Rifles in the paramilitary Frontier Corps.

He expressed surprise that the military authorities did not know that security forces pounded and destroyed the house of their own soldiers.

Meanwhile, security forces claimed that 35 militants were killed when jets pounded their hideouts in Fasht Killay, Maharaba Tapo and Dowa areas in Tirah Valley early in the day. The sources said the area is considered to be the stronghold of the LI.

Security forces had been carrying out airstrikes against the hideouts of militants of the Mangal Bagh-led LI and the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in Tirah Valley in Khyber Agency for the last seven months.

It was the first time that fighter jets carried out bombardment in the Kokikhel area of Jamrud Tehsil.

The residents of Jamrud Tehsil resented the bombardment and asked the government to bring to justice those responsible for the killing of innocent people. They said innocent people were killed and maimed but the authorities were claiming to have eliminated militants.

Airstrike victims laid to rest in Khyber agency

 

Monday, April 12, 2010
Said Nazir Afridi & Saeed Zaman Afridi

BARA/JAMRUD: Sixty-three people killed in Saturday’s airstrikes by the security forces were laid to rest in Sra Vella and other parts of Jamrud subdivision in the remote Tirah Valley of Khyber Agency on Sunday.

A large number of mourners participated in the funeral prayers offered in different areas of the valley. The jetfighters on Saturday hit the house of a tribesman Hameed Khan in the Sra Vella village inhabited by the Kukikhel Afridi sub-tribe, killing at least 63 people and injuring dozens others.

The injured were shifted to different hospitals in Peshawar after travelling for hours in the mountainous region. Political Agent of Khyber Agency, Shafeerullah Khan and Assistant Political Agent Jamrud, Rehan Gul Khattak visited different hospitals of Peshawar on Sunday where they inquired after the health of the injured and provided Rs20,000 to each of the 14 injured persons.

An official of the political administration said the political agent had convened a meeting of the elders belonging to Kukikhel tribe today in Khyber House, Peshawar in a bid to defuse the anger and tension caused by the incident in the Kukikhel tribe.

He said the administration was likely to send a few trucks loaded with relief items to the affected area in Tirah Valley today. He said the administration had planned to prepare the lists of the victims of the bombing by the jets in Sra Vella area and compensate the affectees for human and material losses at the earliest.

Talking to The News, tribal elders Malik Ikramullah and Malik Wazir Kukikhel condemned the killing of the innocent people and urged the government to probe the matter and punish those responsible for this inhuman act.They said the Kukikhel tribe was loyal to Pakistan and it should not be treated as militants and terrorists.

Federal Minister for Environment Hameedullah Jan Afridi asked the officials of Pakistan Air Force to tender apology for indiscriminate bombardment and airstrikes in Tirah valley. Talking to reporters on phone from Islamabad on Sunday, he urged that the killing of civilians should be properly investigated and those responsible brought to justice.

“I will take up the issue with Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani after he returns from the United States,” the federal minister said. He added that all the people killed in the airstrikes in Tirah Valley were innocent and the federal government would soon announce compensation and relief package for them.
