Posted 4 years ago on 22 May 2011 18:57 #
KARACHI: Pakistan Naval Shipping (PNS) Mehran Base, a heavily guarded facility of Pakistan Navy located along Shahrah-e-Faisal, has come under a terrorist attack, Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Sunday.
He said terrorists have launched an armed attack on PNS Mehran while the security forces and army personnel are retaliating terrorists, he said.
The minister said that the attack has been countered to a large extent and the security forces have placed strict cordon around the area.
A big fire is still raging at the site, which the firefighters are trying to douse.
Following the attack, PM Yousuf Raza Gilani phoned Interior Minister and inquired about the situation.
Geo News correspondent said that reportedly 10 terrorists have attacked on PNS Mehran with hand grenades while the gunshots are still being heard from inside.

Did anyone notice the navy installation has been attacked quite a bit lately. There were a couple of attacks on Navy buses and now this.
It appears to me the Navy is being given or is planning to start some project/operation and terrorists obviously dont like it.Posted 4 years ago on 22 May 2011 19:01 #
The Yankee plan is unfolding full fledge. The army has been downgraded in the eyes of the public, fighting on our western borders and the evergreen threat hanging over the head from the east. It's very worrying and we should be quite careful to attack our army (in general). I know it's double edged sword, but still I urge everyone to to be careful.Posted 4 years ago on 22 May 2011 19:02 #

Why no one objected that war?
Because Russian target was warm waters which meant they were headed to Pakistan. It was in Pakistans interest to push the russians back.
This is terrible news. Not just the attack but that P-C3 Orion aircrafts, a couple of them, have been completely destroyed. This is million of dollars going up in flames. I guess this is a 50 million dollar kee duzz right their!
Pasha is being pushed to the wall. They want him to resign. First Abbotabad, now this.
This is terrible and this is Blackwater. Blackwater is HQ'd in Karachi. The fight is being taken to isolate the armed forces.
Action is required. Swift action. Call for mid-terms. Get in people who are not controlled by strings and then get out of this war.
What incentive does TTP have to attack PN? They should have rather gone to Malir Cantt. This is not TTP. This is XE.

In my view it is an act of madness from brainwashed militants who have now attacked Naval base to take revenge of world's biggest terrorist Osama Bin Ladin.
Our security is so weak and laid back that anyone can attack any building anywhere in Pakistan.

Question is that why such a sensitive installation is doing within city limits at all?
If someone remembers in 1997 , when NS just started his second term , a PAF plane having taken off from masroor , bombamded Liaqtabad with its fule tanks on the pretext that it has failure of supply and it had to unload fuel , at that time this question was also raised and most credible airforce x-chiefs like asghar khan and nur khan both said that such installations should be moved out of city.
But since our BAHDUR FAUJ is in love with precious urban land, no such thing can materialize.
Just imagine , had this attackers targeted a ammuniation depot like Ojri camp , what would have been the result. On one side of this is Shah Faisal Colony , on the other side is karsaz , KDA-1 , M A Jinnah , PECHS ? Just imagine .Posted 4 years ago on 22 May 2011 22:53 #

@ beenai: when army is weak, people such as you say that now is not the right time to criticize a sensitive national institution and when it is in a strong position anyone doing so is abducted, so it is now or never.
Defence budget should be brought into parliament, civilians should be appointed as secretary defence and head of ISI and the entire officers cadre infect the entire armed forces should take a lie detector test as to where their loyalties lie. While lie detectors can be fooled it will give us a farely reasonble idea nonetheless.Posted 4 years ago on 23 May 2011 6:45 #
KARACHI: The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility on Monday for a brazen attack on a Karachi naval base that has claimed five lives and destroyed naval aircraft, saying the carnage was to avenge the death of Osama bin Laden.
�It was the revenge of martyrdom of Osama bin Laden. It was the proof that we are still united and powerful,� Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said by telephone from an undisclosed location.
A spokesman said that the team of militants they sent into Karachi s PNS Mehran naval base on Sunday night had enough supplies to survive a three-day siege.
"They have enough ammunition and food and they can fight and survive for three days," Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said.
He said up to 22 militants were assigned to launch the attack. Accounts are unclear, but up to five militants may have been killed by Pakistani troops. The remaining are holed up in a building on the base exchanging fire with commandos.Posted 4 years ago on 23 May 2011 7:49 #
Please dont fall this pile of crap .. TTP claims responsibilty my foot!
This is Balckwater/XE/RAW with a clear target in mind. TTP knows sh*t abt Orion aircrafts! This was a focused effort to destroy the surveillance aircrafts.
TTP knows sh*t abt attacking PNS Mehran. Someone else with a more sophisticated network and equipment has broken through.
Had it been TTP, they would have at best attacked Lahore or Pindi. They wouldnt travel to Karachi to destroy orion aircrafts.
Karachi is the HQ of Blackwater/ RAW. RAW's assets have helped RAW establish with strenght here in Khi.
But I swear upon god this time it is enough. Should we find a shred of evidence of bharti involvement, we should bomb their f'in guts out instead of whining taliban taliban!
Kayani show some guts and send an armored brigade to delhi instead of hiding behind TTP.
THIS IS NOT TTP. Zimadari qabool kar li is a farce. What if i call from a fake SIM to Geo TV and say I am Tamil tiger chief and I claim responsibilty, would GEO play the ticker that it was Tamil tigers.

According to eye witnesses reports, the militants acted in a calm and relaxed way, firing at intervals. They appeared to have complete knowledge of the base and frequently changed their position. Very much like the Mumbai attack, the militants were well-equipped with arms, ammunition, food and drink.
"It was shown several months ago that the Pakistan navy is vulnerable to Islamists when a marine commando unit official was arrested," the security official said. "He was a member of the Mehsud tribe from South Waziristan [tribal area] and was completely indoctrinated by militants. Naval Intelligence never shared the information with the ISI [Inter-Services Intelligence] or any other security agency that during interrogation he confessed that militants planned to attack installations during the visit of a foreign delegation. Now, they [intelligence] realize how the organization [navy] is riddled and vulnerable to the influence of militant organizations," the official said.
Pakistani security forces confirmed that at least three of these attacks were carried out by 313 Brigade led by Ilyas Kashmiri while the others were blamed on Pakistani militants trained by Kashmiri
After the September 11, 2001, attacks on the US, Pakistan's top brass took a policy turn and joined in the US's "war on terror", but a large chunk of officers took retirement and with serving colleagues they helped the Taliban. This changed the dynamics of the Afghan war theater (see Military brains plot Pakistan's downfall Asia Times Online, September 26, 2007).
This collection of former and serving officers was responsible for a number of attacks on the military, including on military headquarters in 2009 and against ex-president General Pervez Musharraf.
Now, this nexus could become active again to revive regional operations, in addition to a possible mutiny against the top military brass. (See Trouble ahead in Pakistan's new US phase May 18.)
Before the incident in Karachi, Asia Times Online was contacted by militants by telephone to confirm future attacks in the following words: "We don't want any trouble inside Pakistan or in the Pakistan army, but we do want to create an environment in which it would be conducive for pro-Islam and patriotic elements in the armed forces to dislodge incompetent and pro-American military officials."
This is the third attack on a naval installation in the past 30 days - two were launched before Bin Laden's assassination.
"The Pakistan navy constituted a high-level inquiry committee after their bases were targeted last month," a senior security official told Asia Times Online on the condition of anonymity. "The teams arrived to Karachi last month and asked for our input. They were wondering why militants were targeting the navy as they were not involved in any anti-terror operations. We told them that the navy's own staff were hand-in-glove in those two attacks," the official said.
Kashmiri's 313 Brigade, which was earlier focused on Afghanistan, has clearly now turned its sights on Pakistan, where Kashmiri is known to have powerful connections among retired and serving officials in the armed forces. More attacks are inevitable.Posted 4 years ago on 23 May 2011 11:48 #
Shall we the Pakistani Awam take this as a combined effort on the part of Pakistan Army top brass and the current ruling regime of Pakistan acting in collaboration with anti Pakistani forces, first being the USA who is in fact their paymaster?
What I see of this is another attack on sovereignty of Pakistan with the hidden agenda telling the whole world that Pakistan being a nuclear power is stuck up and cannot defend itself so the nukes should be taken off from Pakistan. Rehman Malik being the loudest mouth piece forwarding this propaganda to malign Pakistan.
Why not the awam from Sialkot take an initiative to hunt down and pickup Rehman Malik a low life from Ajaji village and dump him down the colonial dungeon 'known as Gora Jail' once and for all.
This would be a signal to the other sellouts from PPPP so actively involved to forward Bush/Mush agenda in Pakistan.Posted 4 years ago on 23 May 2011 12:10 #
