PNS Mehran under siege in Karachi

P3 Orion aircraft on fire at PNS Mehran - Source:

Gunfire and explosions rocked Pakistan Navy’s PNS Mehran base in Karachi last night. Recent reports have confirmed at least 8 casualties and two aircrafts destroyed at the high security facility. P3 Orion aircrafts are operated by Pakistan Navy for maritime surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Navy has become the most targeted wing of the armed/security forces in Pakistan with four terrorist attacks spanning over the last two months. All four have taken place in Karachi targeting buses carrying Navy personnel and now an air-base. The first ever attack on naval interests in Pakistan during the current war on terror took place on March 4, 2008 when the Naval War College in Lahore was attacked by two suicide bombers killing at least 8 people.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the affected families and friends of our brave military men who’ve lost their lives in this incident. Inna lillahe wa inna illehe rajioon.

We all pray in unity for peace in Pakistan!

    Integrity Of Pak Military PNS Mehran attack is a failure of defense
    institutions. Another atrocity on Muslims, yet the Muslim majority
    goes silent. No matter what happens, the Pakistan defense
    authorities will be blamed. Despite our serious efforts to protect
    the country, we cannot bend the will of the terrorists. We must
    understand this reality that Pakistan is under serious threats from
    its enemies. Such attacks are highly embarrassing and cannot be
    taken lightly. These terrorists are well trained and not bound by
    any law or border. They are desperate and they want to challenge
    and demoralize the security forces. The enemy of the states has
    hijacked Pakistan using strategically the phantom of Taliban. It is
    stated that there is an insider job in the whole plot of PNS Mehran
    storm. Pakistan’s immature media anchors and opportunist
    politicians need to understand the new game plan. This involves
    tarnishing the image of Pakistan’s military in order to destabilize
    and eventually disintegrate the country for a larger scheme of
    reshaping the world to the advantage of the sole super power. Read
