NATO helicopters violate Pakistan airspacePakistani military officials have rejected reports regarding the violation of Pakistan’s airspace by NATO helicopters.

Military sources quoted by Pakistan’s The Express Tribune ruled out such incident had occurred, adding that “thus there was no question of violation of Pakistani air-space by the coalition forces aircraft operating in Afghanistan.”

This comes as Pakistani intelligence sources on Wednesday claimed that two aircraft of Nato forces in Afghanistan on Wednesday evening violated airspace of neighbouring Pakistan by infiltrating into its boundaries by several kilometers.

Intelligence officials quoted by Dawn News claimed that the aircraft penetrated into the Pakistani airspace through Pak-Afghan Torkham border.

The officials further added that the aircraft entered Pakistan’s airspace from Awal Khan, a village near the border, at around 6:38pm and circled over the village three times for several minutes before returning back to Afghanistan.

The aircraft returned back to Afghanistan, the officials said adding that the aircraft did not involve in any other violation rules or cause any damage.
