US Drone Shot Down in North Waziristan

January 24, 2010

NEWS JUST IN

MIRAMSHAH: A suspected US drone has been shot down in North Waziristan, sources said Sunday. The local tribesmen have claimed that they fired down the unmanned aircraft in Hamzoni area.

The unmanned aircraft came down in Humzoni area of Datta Khel in North Warisitan bordering Afghanistan, where there have been over 14 drone strikes over the past few weeks.

According to state TV, the drone was shot down while the tribesmen have also claimed that they fired down the pilotless aircraft.

Both the Pakistani and US authorities have maintained a silence on this officially, although it is suspected to be a warning to Langley from Pakistan’s Armed Forces to put an immediate halt to US airspace violations and missile attacks inside Pakistani territory. Relations between the two ‘allies’ appear to have taken a nose-dive in recent days.

  1. It was long expected.But we have to react very carefully.
    Nobody can predict the repercussions,as the enemy is much stronger and wicked.
    Like in a game of chess,the champion is the one who knows all 32 moves.
    Do we know them?
    It is only faith in Allah,which we should make stronger and stronger.


  2. InshaAllah Khair..
    Not to worry


  3. falco is actually a far better uav than this crap usa is offering under the name of DRONES. never mind, in few years pakistan will be producing its own UCAVs. rq-7 is junk.


  4. THATS IT START BRINGING THE DRONES DOWN ENOUGH IS ENOUGH THEY HAD BEEN WARNED NO MORE VIOLATION OF PAKISTANI TERRITORY WHATSOEVER
    NUJAT PATRIOTIC PAKISTANI

        nujat patriotic pakistani


  5. Great stuff. Thats how we need to show USA our backbone. I’d have loved if this had happened from Pakistan Air Force or Pak Army. Even then, if the locals start doing it, great.

    I am waiting for more news of drones getting shot down, Inshallah.


  6. So it begins, I can see a wave of change in Pakistan coming from all sides.

    May Allah turn this change in favor of Pakistan, amin.


  7. Reminds me of a similar incident when a drone was downed by a group of tribal warriors in late 2008.

    If such is the quality of the plain tribal warriors, then how superior would be the quality of a trained and well-equipped soldier?

    Such ppl are a blessing for Pakistan, especially bcoz our armed forces don’t have as many troops as US or India.


  8. A lucky shot or a calculated warning? I wonder!


    • last time , a drone was shot down, US Special forces crossed the border to recover it :/


      • That much everyone understood!

        Personally I find it hard to believe that Pakistani Armed Forces had anything to do with it under the current geo-political environment. We all know it is Islamabad which has given the US and CIA a green signal to violate the Pakistani air space and kill people. Why do we forget that these drones are also stored and fly off from US bases on Pakisrani soil.


  9. It was expected. hope we continue to drop those drones if they try to violate our air spaces.

    By the way there was a link on PKKH about pakistani journalists in US Embassy drink and dance party…..what happened to that link? can’t spot it any more???

  13. i dont think the army of the political leadership has the backbone to stand up to the US ..this was probably done by the tribals and for those who are thankful for these type of pakistani “warriors” …lets not forget that they now hate pakistan and have a score to settle with pakistan because pakistan did not defend them so they are rightly pissed of at pakistan


  14. WELLDONE YE HUI NA BAAT
